Nanoparticle breakthrough makes shower mirror fog-free

Mid Brain muses

I don’t know about you, but I really hate how foggy my bathroom mirror gets after a hot shower. Fortunately, according to Science Centric, researchers in China have discovered a way to to make raspberry-shaped nanoparticles that give glass a permanent antifogging coating.

Shower Mirror Fog Free

Researchers Junhui He and colleagues have found a commercially feasible way to make raspberry-shaped nanoparticles that can disrupt the process by which water droplets condense on glass to cause that pesky fogging effect. They coated glass slides with the particles, cooled them, and then exposed them to steam. Unlike ordinary glass, the treated slides stayed crystal clear no matter how much steam they were exposed to. In addition to the obvious advantages in the bathroom, this breakthrough has application to eye glasses and even automobile windshields.

What do YOU think? Are you freaked out by foggy glass or is this just a waste of Chinese research dollars? Are you having a Foggy Mountain Breakdown? (That’s a song, in case you didn’t know….) Leave a comment and share your thoughts with the rest of the Beauty Brains community.
