    Dive Mask Antifog?

    With it being scallop season and a few of you being divers, what is the best anti fog that you have used on masks?
    I have a plastic framed plastic prescription system ( sits just off 1-2mm) on a glass front lens in mine and any temp variation can cause it to fog horrendously if I don't get the solution lenses just right.
    So feel free to chime in with what you use

    Dive Mask Antifog?

    Never used anything but a big old lugy.
    I have not tried anything commercial.
    Smiddy and I were just discussing a scolly dive
    an hour or 2 ago.
    Can't wait for a feed.

    Yeah im off up the coro on the weekend, unfortunately the good old lugy doesnt seem to work, it sucks getting all the way down and either laying flat on the bottom and carefuly flooding the mask( not ideal-only buys maybe a couple of mins at most before the fog returns worse) or returning to the surface to try again to defog.

    the other one its a pain doing deco stops, its hard to read gauges through a fogged mask

    At the start of the season I wash my mask with cold water and toothpaste, I rub the toothpaste around the lenses after wetting them then after a good rubbing I rinse them clean. After that its just spit, rub and dunk before jumping overboard. Never seem to have issues when I do this.

    Nothing worse than this happening when your at the bottom, its a bitch filling then clearing your mask with water down tehre to wash away the fog, sepecially since I wear contacts down there.

    Once you try Johnson's Baby Shampoo you will never use anything else! Give it a rinse with that before you go in and they will not fog! Promise, try it!

    Ive heard from some guys down south that water activates into a congealed ball of snot in the bottem corner of your mask that is easy to purge out on the sea floor when it makes contact with seaman?.is this true?

    A good hoyk and rub was all I ever used. Worked well.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You will have no troubles with a fogged mask if that's the case?
    Your face has been splattered with gallons of the stuff😜

    Will try the baby shampoo trick. Don't recall having any issues with fogging with a good mask.

    That's more like it Necky, back on form
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.
