Home-made Anti-fogging solution
As I understand it there is a way to make home-made anti-fogging solution. Something like dishwater or some sort. If anyone knows how to make it if it exists I'd be glad to hear it.

I don't think it exists.

my friend said that he washed his lenses with johnsons baby shampoo(i think) and water, like 1 part shampoo to 5 parts water i think, not sure. ill find out tomorrow tho and post another message on what he used.

sounds like a good thing to me. however, i'm quite skeptical if it can be done.

Materials :

Spray bottle
Baby Shampoo (tear free stuff like Johnson's)

Mix a solution of water and shampoo. I recommend anywhere from 5:1 to 10:1 (water : shampoo) in the spray bottle. You can experiment with different strenghts of the solution for best results. Spray the solution on you goggles or eyeglasses and wipe off any excess. I provide no guarantee of success. Success is up to you. This no-fog spray is used by SCUBA divers around the world, but even under extreme conditions (high heat and humidity) even this will fail. So don't count on it as being a fix-all solution because there is none when it comes to keeping goggles fog-free. Except using a combination, fan, spray, and thermal lenses. Even then you still run into the occasional foggy lense.

Good Luck

sounds like a good thing to try out if you've got a single lense. thankfully enough, jt thermals are great.

mT_hEd 05-07-2002 05:25 AM has a suggestion on how to make some, but it is the same as the 1:5 baby shampoo solution. You could also try it with dishsoap and water, i heard that sometimes works.

Ded's anti-fog solution
-2 parts windex
-1 part dishsoap

haven't tried it in a game, but it seems to work fine just from testing.

your not supposed to use either of those on a lense

You upped a 5 year old thread...

Don't put anything on your lenses unless if the manufacturer approves it. I mean come on, a bottle of anti-fog stuff is like $5-$10. Eye surgery (even if they can be replaced) after your lense shatters because you were too cheap to buy the right stuff and you get shot in the eyes is a lot more expensive than some anti-fog approved for your lense.
