    Question Glasses fog up

    Whenever I wear a dust mask & safety glasses my glasses fog up. Does anyone have any solutions to this?
    Thanks

    ARMY ( surplus ) stores . . .

    or the like. Its a cloth that comes in, what looks like, a 35mm film canister billed as anti-fogging cloth. For dry land it works better than spit in water. We used to order it from the supply system as an accesory for protective / chemical masks. Might try Brigade Quartermaster also. ( Are they still around ? )

    I use the Dust-Bee-Gone mask and my glasses don't fog up. A full face mask might work better for you also. They are inexpensive and good protection

    Short of LASIK......

    I had my eyes done nearly two years ago, not a problem, but yeah, safety glasses still fog up with a dust mask, I have moved to the Triton Power respirator for sanding on the lathe it works great, but for walking around the shop, well, kind of over kill.

    I have had some success with the "Dust Be Gone" mask, and of course a real respirator that seals to you face and has an exhalation valve will not fog your glasses, but........

    Maybe one of these..........


    Kind of a disposable dust mask with the exhalation valve?

    I also find if I don't wear a hat, it helps, seems I don't fog stuff up as bad.....

    Cheers!

    Rain-X markets an anti-fog product for car windshields, but I bet it would work in this application too.

    My half-face respirator vents away from my glasses - this helps to eliminate fogging.

    Rain-X should help, but make sure it gets on the glasses and not on your work. It is silicone and can interfere with finish. It's the inside surface of the lenses that needs it. And ventilation helps too.

    No fog with this. The mask and the refills are very inexpensive. Without the big cans on either side, the vision blocking is very minimal. I sometimes forget I have it on.

    Real simple:
    Take a strip of adhesive tape and run it across the top of the dust mask, attaching it to the bridge of your nose and cheeks. It will force the exhaled breath down.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
