    helpful de fogger.

    so i was experimenting with a couple of household thingies to stop my visor from fogging up when i stumbled upon it. basic bar soap and candle wax mixed into a 3 to 1 kinda polish works perfectly. the only problem is that it does need to be applied just about every use. or

    hope y'all enjoy.

    I use to be a swimmer before a spinal injury terminated all of that ... so I've had similar problems with fogging goggle lenses. If you ever go to a swim shop, buy some swim goggle anti-fogging solution. I use that on my Vader lenses and Fett visor, and it REALLY works! Well, unless you start doing some rigorous physical activity with the mask on!

    I used Rain-X on my trooper helmet. Put it on once and it hasn't fogged up since.

    Yes, that works too. Did it have any negitive effect on the plastic, like dulling or blurring?

    I would be concerned about Rain-X leaving a sort-of haze (residue) on the visor. That didn't happen?

    It was on a Stormtrooper helmet with the dark lenses. You can't see out of them anyway. It didn't seem to have any residue. You could always test it first. If it doesn't work, use it on your winshield.

    A swimmer as well, I've always used dish soap. Just a thin coat works like a champ! At least on swimming goggles.
