How to keep mirror visible for indirect vision

I have horrible ergonomics due to using direct vision while using my Cavitron. The water droplets make it next to impossible for me to see. I know the tricks of wiping mirror along pt’s cheek or dipping in Listerine, however, this only lasts a few seconds at most. What other tricks or tidbits are you all using? Beginning to feel the effects of this bad habit. 😩

Here’s a very short video from Hygiene Edge showing what you already mentioned, dipping in Listerine (which you need to do quite a bit to keep water from beading) and also using prophy paste (fine grit, gently) on your mirror:

I’m not sure if an antifogging solution may help with water droplets, but Mirror Magic by Zirc might be worth a try:

This is a nagging problem for many and I sure wished I had more solutions for you!
