Fogging Eye-glasses

HI,
I found that the suggestion of using regular dishwashing soap wiped on and then dried off the visor was very effective a keeping the visor fog-free. My problem is keeping my eyeglasses clear. The soap solution does not work on them. I have tried a number of commercial products with a marvelous lack of success. Every time I exhale with the visor down, it will remain clear, but my eyeglasses will fog up. Any suggestions?

I have used Cat Crap on my sunglasses for years. I am not entirely sure if you will get the same results with glass lenses.

Something to consider is the exhaust of the helmet. If there is no where for the moisture to go, it is bound to start condensing (fogging) on your lenses.

You might give these a try.

Fog Tech. I've been using it for 4 years.

I use a Respro Foggy ( http://www.respro.com/products/racin...ing/foggy_mask ) , works well with glasses in my HJC helmet. Bought it in Canada from TopEndz ( http://www.topendz.com/mm5/merchant....ry_Code=Respro )

Cat Crap. Lovely name, better product. If you have an REI store nearby, they have it.
