I am having a problem with goggles fogging. I have someof those gogles
with no pads that work fine for 50frees. But, I am better at *** stroke
and they fog up real fast. I own a pair of padded goggles that are real
wide but they fog up too.

Mary Belle, (beautiful name may I add)

Here's a little trick...always keep 3-4 drops of water in your goggles,
everytime they fogg up, shake your head and the water inside will wipe
off the fogg. Now if you wear contact lenses, well put less drops :p
Good luck and let me know how that works for ya.

Cheers,
Alexx

Another trick for fog-free goggles posted here previously, that I've
been using with great success, is to smear a drop of Johnson's Baby
Shampoo into the lens.  Whoever it was said to use the original product
(which works great, BTW), but I've been using the new 'sensitive'
hypoallergenic product (no dyes or perfumes) and it works even better -
no irritation whatsoever.  I usually put it on the lens *after*
practice so it's ready to go for the next practice.  "No More Tears"
really works!

What a great idea -- will try it this week!  Seems to really make sense --
like using conditioner for shaving instead of shaving cream.

Use your saliva! Spit into the goggles then drain the excess saliva out.
Sounds gross, but its really effective. Alternatively, you could try to get
hold of anti-fogging drops. I haven't seen them beig sold, but I read about
them in an adverti***t. However, the saliva method is still the most
effective (and economical!)

Yes, or simply polish the inside of your goggles before you swim with
washing up liquid, or any mild liquid detergent. Works well, and that's
what you buy when you pay for anti-fog liquid, anyway!

True, spit works well.  But you can also use baby shampoo (no more tears) and
it works great as well.  I have heard of numerous scuba divers use it and they
swear it's better than _any_ commercial product avail.  Even so, you can't
beat a ~$1 bottle of defogger that will last you a lifetime....  For me, when
wether I'm swimming or diving, it's spit...

I've tried the anti-fogging drops and they give off a fume in that tiny little
environment that irritates my eyes to no end!  Ditto with face masks.  I've
never tried the no-tear baby shampoo.  Saliva works fine and it's free.  I do
worry about contaminating my contact lens, which I wear under my goggles, but I
disinfect them every night and toss them every two weeks and haven't had an
infection yet.

Yes! full of Strepto coccos and other bacterial colonies!

I guess that leads to the saying "here's spit in your eye..."

Hi Bill!

Do your eyes a favor and use baby shampoo instead of a more irritating
detergent.

I agree! Spit's free...works well...and you can never forget to bring it
along.

If you don't like to use spit for antifogging, you might follow the
ancient practice of the Japanese and Korean diving women (the AMA). They
rub the inside of their masks with chrysanthemum leaves. It works, but
don't ask me why.

Well, that is gross, and I use spit all the time.  The trick is to put
the spit in while the goggles are *dry*, and then wash them out in the
pool.  Swim, but don't let the goggles dry by putting them on the side of
the pool for any length of time.

The net result is a thin and invisible layer that keeps the goggles
uniformally wetted.  If you are worried about contamination or infection
than you probably shouldn't be swimming in a pool -- there are a lot more
serious things in the water to worry about!
