Hi, does anybody have a cure for fogged up eyeglasses in humid weather when you're starting to sweat.

Thanks, Dave.

fogging

Rub some gel toothpaste on your glasses and then off. This should last about a month or so.

I'd like to know if you can use something like Rain-X on plastic corrective lenses (glasses). Would help in the rain. Only the warning on the bottle says it's not guaranteed on plastic, and I'm afraid to test it on my glasses.

I use a product called plexus, i believe its made for paintball goggles, to clean and stop fogging. I use it on my sunglasses when cycling, and have never had a problem of fogging.

Here ya go, Fellers; another practical and low-cost piece of advise from your friend Mike Stone:

Forgit 'bout spittin' on yer lens. That's jest fer scuba divin'.

Seriously, though, one of the very best and safest fog proof materials around is bar soap found right in your bathroom. Wet the soap and apply a thin film to your lens. Let it dry throroughly. Then, polish it off with a soft, dry cotton towel.

Your lens will be sparkle clean and will not fog.

Spend the money you save on your next cup of coffee and toast to the guy that gave you the good advise.

Mike

:cool: Thanks again for all the hints, I tried the gel toothpaste, and it worked to a certain extent, I'll try the other options too.
