Anti-fog treatment for glasses/sunglasses: What's the best?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've tried some of the ones that they sell at the local drugstore. They definitely help but don't work well enough for me (I'm an extremely warm person).

Anyone use a brand that they've found to be especially effective?

Capper - The people that make RainX for windshields also make a product called RainX AntiFog for the interior of windshields. You can find it in the automotive care section of many stores. It works pretty good! Make sure your glasses are squeaky clean (clean them with soap and warm water several times) and apply RainX AnitFog with a VERY SOFT cotton cloth. Apply it a couple of times.
Nothing will completely eliminate glasses fogging if you are steaming hot, the air is cold, and there is no breeze but this works the best for me. - HPD

Stop by your opticians office and see if they can adjust the frame slightly away from your face so it is not touching your skin. This will also help.

glycerin works best, total no fog, smear some on and rub clean.

You may have to look for it, it is almost soap like

Go to your local dive shop. They make stuff for scuba masks that works great.

I've been thinking of trying that. I use it on my car windows and it works well, but it may or may not be effective and safe on all plastic/polycarbonate lenses, which is what I have.

I think I'll give it a test on a couple pairs of old sunglasses and safety glasses...

It's a good thing I'm a packrat and never throw anything out...I knew I might someday find a use for those old, scratched up glasses.

Although I do need prescription glasses, I still haven't made it to an eye appointment to get some. Hopefully this winter, once the fish are gone, I'll get around to it...

I'm currently looking for something to defog regular sunglasses and safety glasses.

we used to use just a drop of dish soap on the boat windows to keep them from fogging, maybe a tiny bit of soap spread on the glasses would help.
