Best DIY Anti-Fog Solutions
Whether you have just gotten a new pair of goggles or have been using one trusty pair for years, you will have experienced problems with fogging. Some people may have tried store-bought lens solutions or many other remedies to no avail. When that is the case, you can try making your own lens cleaning solution at home with a few simple and inexpensive ingredients. Read on to find out some of our top DIY anti-fog solutions in this article.
Best Practices for Keeping Eyewear Clean
You may not know it, but the way you clean your eyewear could be contributing to the impaired vision you experience when the lenses fog up. Below are some best practices to follow when cleaning your eyewear:
- Always clean your eyewear with a microfiber cloth – wiping the lenses with your shirt is a no go.
- Avoid using paper products when cleaning your lenses.
- Try washing your eyewear with water first, and if that doesn’t work, add a cleaner.
- When making a DIY lens cleaning solution, use distilled water so that other minerals do not get in the solution inadvertently.
If you have already mastered these best practices, it’s time to go ahead and stir up a DIY anti-fog solution of your own!
Anti-Fog Solution with Alcohol
All you need for this DIY solution is rubbing alcohol and some Dawn dish soap. First, get ¼ cup of water and fill it fully with rubbing alcohol. Pour the entire solution into a spray bottle and add a drop of Dawn dish soap. Shake the bottle before spraying your lenses with the solution. Keep in mind that alcohol recipes may be too harsh for your eyewear, depending on what kind it is. To be on the safe side, you may wish to stick with just soap and water.
Anti-Fog Solution with Vinegar
Another simple DIY solution for anti-fogging makes use of vinegar. Firstly, fill a cup 1/3 to the brim with distilled water. Next, add vinegar till the cup is full and pour the solution into a spray bottle. Spray your eyewear with the solution and wipe down with a microfiber cloth. All done! Vinegar has the ability to both clean off grime and act as a layer of anti-fog coating.
