Hello, food processor here reaching out to see if anyone has came up with a method to keep your glasses from fogging up when you breath with your face mask on.  

 

Tried shaving cream, anti-fog lens, curious I am wondering about using rain x any thoughts?

It's only anecdotal but I have been told (by a nurse) that using an appropriately adjusted mask to compress/pinch the top of one's nose helps.


Kind Regards,

We have the issue here, Houston is crazy humid. What type of face mask and what type of goggles? We went with buying some disposable anti fog glass cleaners (didn't really help) and providing our guys with valved respirators (this DID help).

There really isn't anything on the market to spray on glasses that helps 100%. Goggles would work. A tight mask at near the nose does work like Charles mentioned. The masks that TimG mentioned - we just banned them in our facility. The reason being - the air you breath out isn't filtered. With roughly 80% of COVID-19 cases showing little to no symptoms - our goal with our mask policy is to prevent one of those cases from spreading it to others or before symptoms arise.
