One of the most common problems faced by car drivers on rainy days is the issue of visibility.
And this is because the raindrops make it difficult for the driver to see the vehicles behind him from the mirrors.
Many times drivers of vehicles that do not have heated mirrors look for a solution to this particular problem by purchasing special films that they place on their mirrors.
On the contrary, those who have not installed a film, constantly try to wipe the water from the mirror, which they repeat constantly depending on the evolution of the weather phenomena they encounter.
However, there is also a solution for those who have not taken care to buy a related item. And it’s also quite cheap!
All the drivers will need is… half a potato.
After cleaning and drying the mirror glass with water and an absorbent cloth, they should take half a potato and carefully rub it all over the surface of their mirror.
Although the potato starch will leave a stain on the mirror glass, it will disappear quickly, then making your mirror water repellent.
In this way, the mirror will not catch the raindrops, as they will “slide” into the protective layer left by the potato.
The action of this particular trick does not have a fixed duration, as it depends on the rate of rain falling on the mirror.
All you have to do, if you find that your mirror is holding water drops again, is to repeat the process with another freshly cut potato.
