I want to do it safely, too.

Do you have a bench grinder? If so put a buffing wheel on it and get some jewlers rouge and polish away> It will get as shiny as you want it to.

How the fogless mirror made my life easier, and my wife happier

As all guys know, most wives or girlfriends dislike our beards. We'll admit that they can be rough, and scratchy, or sometimes just plain ugly. So some of us shave when we can, to make you happy, and so you'll actually want to be around us.

I really hate shaving. It's annoying and usually leaves my skin bloody. I especially don't like to shave before my shower, when my beard is at it's roughest. It always leaves my skin razor burned. I've tried the presoak, gels, creams, and all sorts of moisturizing shaving creams. They do help a little, but not by much. I also make sure I have sharp razors, all types of them. I have electric ones that vibrate while shaving, 3 blades, 4 blades, heck I do believe I even have one with 5 blades packed on that thing. I'm not sure how much those help, since it's like shaving the same spot 5 times, which is usually too many times if you want to keep some layers of your skin intact.

I also don't really like to shave after my shower. I'm already clean, and don't want to have to clean again. Sure, my skin is softer, and my beard is less tough, but it's not an ideal way to do it in my opinion. Why wash rinse and dry yourself off twice? It's just nuts.

I usually end up skipping my shave for a day or two or five. Right up until my wife tells me she won't kiss me anymore until I shave. There's always a limit.

So I decided to try shaving in the shower. At first when I didn't have a mirror it didn't end up well. I'd have big sections of my face that didn't get shaved, or I took too much off of one of my side burns, or cut myself. Being a cheap skate like a lot of guys I didn't want to pony up the money for a fancy fogless mirror for my shower. I tried just a regular smaller mirror. No go, it would fog up within 1 second of wiping it off and I could also see vague shapes. So I broke down a started looking for a fog free mirror.

I got a cheap one, of course. I didn't want to overdo it and get the sports car of shower mirrors, with radio, clock, and a light. I don't need all that, I just need simplicity and convenience. When I do remember to shave in the shower, my wife is so happy. I have to admit I shave more often since it's hard to miss the giant mirror with my razor and some shave foam sitting on it.

Tip for getting a free mirror: Grow a goatee and refuse to shave it until your wife gives you one for your B-day or X-mas. Full beard and handlebar moustache also works.
