Prevent fogging up of safety glasses?
Do you guys have any solutions to help prevent the fogging up of safety glasses during extrication? Thanks

As long as you dont sweat and get it wet, a small dab of dish soap with no water added might help. Just rub it in till it dries out. I used to do this for my clear hockey face-shield.

I have heard of guys putting rain-x on their SCBA facepieces and swearing by it, but I dont know how comfy I would be putting a flammable liquid on my facepiece. Glasses however I suppose I would try once."Loyalty Above all Else. Except Honor."

That would be the RainX Anti Fog for interior windows. Once it is dry, it shouldn't be a problem."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters.

Hum this came up on a hunting forum ,as glasses fog up when you wear a facemask. One guy said he too used rain X. So 2 days ago when I picked up my new "glasses" I asked about that,here's what they said.
Don't do that ! rain X is made for glass, glasses are not glass they'er poly this or that and many chemicals can damage them .
I'm not saying it'll melt your face piece, and damage if any may occur over time, but I don't think I'll be testing it on mine. I guess the manufacturer would be the right ones to ask though .
