As we all know, it's very annoying when you're swimming and your goggles start to cloud over. To help you prevent this, here are a few of the top ways to banish the dreaded goggle fog.
Firstly we have one of the most effective and cost-free options; saliva. All you need to do is rub some of your saliva across the inside of the lenses, this will add a layer of water to the goggles that will help to prevent condensation from forming. This is a simple but short-term solution.
If you're happy to spend a little bit more on a pair of goggles, opt for a pair with an anti-fog coating. This special coating will help in keeping your goggles fog-free, but be sure to take good care of the goggles as the coating can be damaged or removed if the lenses are rubbed or scratched. Store these goggles in a pouch when not in use and carefully wash them after use in lukewarm chlorine-free water.
Another method is anti-fog spray or an anti-fog stick. Simply apply one of these products to the lenses of your goggles and they will add an anti-fog coating to stop any clouding over. This is a relatively quick and cheap fix for anti-fogging. Our final method may sound a little unconventional but it does seem to work! Just add a tiny drop of baby shampoo into each lens and rub around so that it's coated well. Wait 10-15 minutes then rinse, but do not rub the lens so that the baby shampoo remains as a light coating. Always remember to only use baby shampoo as other products may have harsh chemicals that could cause problems with your eyes.
