how to keep your terrarium glass from fogging up

I love pretty much everything about terrariums except for one thing – the annoying way they tend to fog up with condensation! Luckily, I found out that there’s an easy fix to this problem. Read on to find out what it is.

Just like your bathroom mirror fogs up when you shower, your terrarium’s glass will get cloudy when the air inside is humid. So I decided to apply an old trick that maids and dudes use to keep their bathrooms mirrors from fogging – shaving cream! Just apply a little shaving cream to a towel and wipe it onto your glass until it’s clear. It will stay that way. If you don’t have shaving cream, dishwashing liquid works too!
