While at Clancy's/Spex the other day, I asked about a product to keep my glasses from fogging up while wearing a mask. They were out of the product. But, he said he read about using dish soap. Put a little tiny dot on the inside of the lens (no water), wipe over the lens, wipe off with a tissue.

Works great! I can now walk the pup and see where I am going without having to wipe my glasses every few steps.

NPR has the same tip and a few more. They recommend Dawn dish soap (what I used) without any additives for sensitive skin or lotion.

I'd be careful about which soap you use. Some have degreasers which can erode coatings on your lenses. My spouse used an antibacterial hand soap for a few months until she noticed the coatings coming off. The optician said it was the soap.

I think I better clarify something for your viewers. I meant, we used to spit into the scuba masks, not the covid masks. I don't think spitting into the covid mask would rectify the issue.
