    Is there any type of spray or treatment to use on the inside of shooting glasses to keep them from fogging up, we shot yesterday evening and my wife spent more time cleaning her glasses then she did shooting. thanks!

    If you go into the bathroom before shooting and take some liquid hand soap and drip a little on each lens then rub it in and then take some water and just buff em clean. It keeps the fog down for weeks. You'll eventually have to do it again since it wears off.

    Best solution is to get glasses that keep the lenses up and away from the skin and allow for good ventilation. Decot HyWydes for example. Everything else is just a band-aid approach to the problem.

    I'll second the Cat Crap, funny name but it works. I've turned quite a few people on to that and they all now use it.

    Lens Crafters or Costco sell a alchol biodegradeable lens wipe that is single packed they work well.

    in the liquid form you were screaming your butt off. Sorry

    BudsterXT is right on traget...Take if from an Old Mail Man, a piece of IVORY soap applied it DRY to glasses then wipe it off...No more fogging.

    Wolfram has it exactly right. Hats pulled down too low, lenses too close to the face and side blinders all prevent good airflow around lenses and are the prime causes of fogging.

    Someone once mentioned that if you were to rub the filter from a (new/unused) cigarette over the lenses, this would prevent this from happening.

    I've never tried it, but it's a cheap try.

    Wal Mart has lense cloth, 3.00 a box of 50. Reed the box as most of them are anti-fog. My neighbor uses them on motorcycle goggles. Allen

    Rain X has a antifog solution to use on widshields, I have used it for years on my glasses and it works great, just follow the directions. You can get it at most autozones and some walmarts.
