Just a quickie.
My goggles fog up like a bugger when I am swimming. Any suggestions for how to stop it?
I heard suggestions of spit, washing up liquid etc but just wondered if anyone had any bright ideas
I honest to god thought you said 'Google fogging' in your headline and was wondering that the hell that was.
don't know the answer but seem to remember someone on here trying washup liquid and just eyes full of suds
Well logically speaking, fogging occurs when you have a cold surface that suddenly comes into contact with hot air etc ....... so perhaps if you 'pre warm' your goggles beforehand (ie tuck them under your shirt or something or wrap them up) then the discrepency between the heat you are giving off and the googles wont be so great.
as David says allow you google to reach the approiat temprateure ... put them in the water for a while
rathe than washup liquid use baby shampoo its more gentel if you get it in your eyes. one tiny drop of baby shampoo into each goggle and rub it around to make sure the lenses are coated well. Rinse lightly, but don't rub the lenses as you rinse so that a light coating of the shampoo remains on the lenses.
You can but anti-fog spry BUT i've never tried this
I use a spray I got from wiggle called aqua sphere. its a tiny bottle for about £5 but i only need to give each lens a couple of squirts and its then good for about 4 to 5 weeks.
washing up liquid works - when you remember to do it
otherwise a good gob on the lens, wipe around and rinse works well enough
and re: cold water fogging - yes, it will happen and until the water warms up enough to reduce the temp differential between the water and your eye sockets, then get used to swimming in a fog.....
I spit. Classy burd
When I used to dive the popular story was that the anti-fog sprays were filled by divemasters gobbing into them.
I'm a lick and rinse boy.
