Topic tags/keywords: safety glasses fog on glasses fogged up safety glasses question

Now the Sun is coming back down under so will the humidity with the heat.
One of the safety issues in the workshop is that nusiance fog that appears on the inside of the safety glasses.
Does anyone out there have any ideas on a safe chemical to use on the inside of the glasses.
I know divers spit on their goggles which works in water but not so well in the shop.

I’d bet that rain-x would work if you have that down under—tho am pretty sure it contains silicone so you would want to be careful not to spread it around the shop . . . an eyeglass place would have an anti fog compound too. might well contain silicone too, tho

Thanks Dan. I missed that link should have done a search.
Fred I have some rain-x but not sure what it would do to my eyes.
Good tip there Barry. Some extra holes might work..

I saw a face shield at the mower shop recently. It had a see through gauze mask. Might be worth a try.

Grumpy- Just set your thermostat to 72 degrees like I do. Believe me that will take care of any fogging problems. Come on, you only go around once, and you can’t take it with you. Yes, that means installing an air conditioner. You won’t believe how much more shop time you’ll accumulate. You can hang meat in my shop. As always, bbqKing. And yes , I still know what time it is In Sydney. (Time for an Ale.)

King, it’s a bit early for a beer, does not mix with machinery. Air conditioned shop?, next you will be saying I should have electricity. LOL

If you are still running on that coal fired steam equipment, that could have something to do with that fogging. BBqKing.

Grumpy,

As a scuba diver, we switched from spit to dish washing liquid. Rub a little on the inside and rinse it off with water. Don’t know if it will on shop glasses, but it won’t cost anything to try. Besides, it was easier than rubbing the diving mask with a raw cut potato.

I don’t know if you have any ski shops around, but they may sell an item called “Cat Crap”. It’s an anti fog agent for lenses and goggles. It works very well. It really isn’t what the name implies, but then again maybe it is? I’m sworn to secrecy.
