A friend of mine uses Cat Crap(not sure if that the spelling) and you buff it on and works like a charm...also pretty cheap.

:happy: Laughs ....... excuse me are you saying that you're friend rubs cat crap on his lenses? Or is that the name of the brand of lense cleaner that he uses? :ghillie:

a small can of travelers shaving cream ,one small dot in the inside of mask,smear around entire lens " and then clean .
try it out on the bathroom mirror ,smear some on the mirror wipe and turn on hot shower .the mirror wont fog up .also use a bandanna to prevent the sweat from your head from getting the foam wet inside the goggles ,once that starts to get wet ,the mask gets fogged quickly.good luck


I took this to another level. I grabbed 6 items to test on my mirror during a hot shower with the fan off.

I used Palmolive Ultra dish detergent, Extra thick shaving cream, generic liquid hand soap, KleerVu anti-fog cleaner, Body glove anti-fog gel, and Fogzero anti-fog (&scratch repair).
The last three are anti-fog formulas I have been able to find in paintball shops, and the first three were things that were just laying around. The results?

The top two that worked best was the Fogzero anti-fog stuff. It comes in a very small white container and the substance looks a lot like elmers glue with a different texture. Just behind that was the shaving cream. It worked very well and at the conclusion of my shower, only those two spots on the mirror had no sign of fogging and no moisture on them. Lagging closely in third was the Palmolive ultra. It worked very well and had just a slight bit of moisture on it at the conclusion of the shower. The others did not fare so well and had noticeable amounts of moisture forming on them and limited amounts of fog. I'd rate them as follows; generic hand soap 4th, body glove anti-fog gel 5th, and lastly the KleerVu anti-fog cleaner (Supposedly becomes more effective after repeated use).

Since I don't recall where I got my Fogzero stuff, and I am certain it cost me more than my $.99 can of thick shaving cream, I'm about to start packing some shaving cream with me on my paintball adventures from now on. Of the goggle applied anti-fog solutions here, I think that the shaving cream is the best bet. Widely available and cheap, it seems to have worked much better than the others. Although it might be somewhat messy when applying it.

Hope that helps some of you.

Do you just smear it in or what? The shaving creame that is.

Try windex. It works great with my mask, to prevent Any fogging. Oh, and try breathing techniques, cause this works great. Hope this helps :laugh:

Never use windex or soaps, its eats the plastic. That is very dangerous.

A small dab and using a soft cloth just rub it around and buff it in. The problem is removing the excess creame, so it is probably easier to apply when the lens is separated from the mask. On the mirror it was easy to remove with a handy towel and just the stuff that got buffed in preformed admirably. It would probably be a bit too messy when applying this while the lens is mounted in the mask. I haven't tried though. In general, just buff it in and remove excess.

Well, the soaps preformed fairly well on the mirror, but I was concerned about applying that sort of thing to plastic. I do have some old lenses lying around I could test it on though. :laugh:

I'm going to take my own recommendation though and stick with the shaving cream.

Cat Crap is lens anti fog stuff that us skiers and snowboarders use. It works really well too. (i have not used it on a paintball lens, only snowboarding, but my goggs used to fog like crazy but now it is only on rare occasions)

Cat Crap works awesome. I have two little jars of it. Works just like advertised. Smear it on and it won't fog. I stopped using it cause i stopped wearing glasses whe i play. Otherwise i'd stil be using it.
