Most masks don't fog if they're cleaned properly. What I do is take my mom's iron, set it to steam, hold it a good distance from the lence so the heat doesn't warp the plastic, and steam up the mask. Then I use a 100% cotton rag and wipe off the steam. Never fogs.

i thought soap corrodes the mask and makes it weaker?... is that true?

or is it only on thermal lenses?

soap doesnt corrode anything, just anti-fog spray corrodes thermals.

not entirely true. though i dont know if it'll corrode the lenses but it will certainly corrode your car's paint/clear coat.

Actually any chemical used on the lenses cause small almost invisible cracks in the plastic that slowly make the lens weaker. The only exception is to use the specially made anti-fog or cleaners. Dont just use any soap on your mask. Use warm water and a clean cotton rag or cloth. It works just as good as soap, you just have to scrub a little more.

Hi
The Best Anti Fog is found at Dive Shops. I get mine from the Scuba shop.
Just make sure to tell them its for a plastic lens. The stuff for gas is too strong.

I have several masks. Priced from 25 to 85 The anti fog from the scuba shops make them all work great. These masks are worn by people from 10 to 50 years of age.

They test out find.

Just run your mask under really warm water...and make sure you dry it properly. It always worked for me, though my mask always fogged up until I took time to buy a new mask. Crappy mask=Fog/Good mask=No Fog

I wouldn't use anything that wasn't specifically made for lenses, eyes don't grow back once you lose them.

You can use small 12V notebook fan with 9V charging cell to prevent fogging. It is quite cheap and it will help prefent fogging even in heavy conditions, reliably... but the sound is little annoying after while - the fan can you not heard even on ideal conditions from 6 feet distance, but when he is very close to your ears... it is not much good solution for long woodsball play, but if you are speedball player...



If you do not wish use thermal lences, anti-fog spray, or fan, simply choose good mask with good sealing and ventilation (or improve your curent sealing and ventilation holes) and wipe off the sweat and impurities from lenses, seals and even from your face regulalry in between of games (!). When you will do that, then you will have minimally half hour without fogging, everytime.

...for cleaning of the lenses is very good toilet-paper and the main asset of the anti-fog sprays is often that they help you clean the lenses.

Likewise is good use wind as natural fan in the game, move continually and avoid to stay in damp lowland places or crawl, especially in wet grass.

The problem is not that some anti-fog can blind you, but that some mixtures can - at least theoretically - damage the polycarbonat lenses chemicaly and they will be then not able halt the paintball.

But you can attempt that with old scratched lenses - let the mixture long (days, weeks) on them and you will se it there is some change. If not, you can use it without problems on a while, during play.
