    foggy goggle cure

    I was watching PBS and this guy had all these houshold tips, one for a foggy mirror after you get out of the shower. He put shaving cream on the mirror, wiped it off, when he applied some steam it stayed perfectally clear. I imagine it would work for goggles as well. He says it would work for a few weeks at a time. I haven't tried it yet (I don't use shaving cream), for what its worth give it a try

    Regular toothpaste works better ( not the gel type ). Smear it on then rinse it off... you'll be fog free for weeks. It's an old scuba diving trick to keep face masks fog free.
    Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good for anything, but
    you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Do you smear it on the inside or outside of the lens? Or both?

    Smear it on the inside of the lens...on the outside if you fog that up too.

    A couple of suggestions:
    1) glasses are better than goggles-they don't fog as easily
    2) rubbing alcohol applied to any surface in a thin layer will reduce fogging
    3) ever hear of Fog-X??????????

    My glasses seem to fog up worse than my goggles though they clear up faster and I would rather take the gravel on my cheap plastic lenses

    From the Diving world:

    The Toothpaste really works for new glasses/masks
    what it does is help remove the oily residue left over
    from manufacturing.
    I highly recommend trying some of the mask clearing
    solutions. I personally like Sea Gold gel (I call it
    sea snot), but I'm not sure how it would work on
    glasses/goggles for biking, you have to apply it
    and then rinse it off.
    I'm betting some of the Speedo product made
    for swim goggles would work better. The plus
    side of these is they won't sting your eyes since
    they are specific for masks etc.

    There used to be a product called KatKrap (spelled something like that), but I am unsure if it is still available. Someone on the trail let me borrow some several years ago - worked real well.
