Subject: Home Recipes for Anti Fog Solutions?

I've had some minor problems with my goggles fogging up while I'm doing my lap swimming.  I went to a sporting goods store (where I bought the goggles) to get anti fog spray, but they don't carry any.  An employee told me to cut a potato and wipe a bit of the "meat" of the potato on the inside of the lens.  (I haven't tried it yet, so I'm not sure if that works of not.)

So that got me thinking... does anyone have anything they do to keep their goggles from fogging besides 1) using store-bought anti fog spray, or 2) spitting on the inside of the lenses?

Get creative!

If you are kelp diving and your mask is fogging, you can take a piece of kelp and wipe the inside, works pretty well.  So.... kelp

Wait a minute now.  I have been spitting in bottles for the last year trying to sell it as The World's Greatest Anti-Fog.  Darn...

Didnt see it posted......... try a tiny dab of Joy dish soap wiped on the lens. I thought the dive master on the trip was crazy until I tried it.

Really you're just cleaning the lens. A clean lens does not fog.

Ditto. As someone else said, I've always heard baby shampoo works well (sister was a competitive swimmer for a long time), but never tried it.

a good lick and rinse does the trick. i never fog up.

Now if you want to purchase something, CAT CRAP works great, at least on my ski goggles.

urine.  Ok, I haven't tried this, but it would be funny to see someone try at the pool...just after I finished my workout.

Spit or baby shampoo. Unless you have aquasphere vista's where nothing seems to work accept aquasphere anti-fog drops.
