    used dryer fabric softener or a dry newspaper. the micro dust in those will keep them from fogging up.

    in scuba diving its common to spit in your mask, the saliva slimy layer keeps from fogging up.

    About 150 years ago when I was young, thin, and in shape, I was also a top notch swimmer. Swimming every day outside or in indoor humid arenas had my goggles in a state of fog. At the time there was a waxy substance we spread on the inside of the goggle which spread cleanly without leaving any smears or haze and lasted quite a long time. It worked beautifully and I’ve seen it used by scuba divers. I suspect it may work for snow goggles.

    Many moons ago….don’t recall. I would imagine you could find it at a dive shop.

    The best solution I’ve found is the Smith Turbo Fan.

    Goggles, glasses, mirroes etc all fog up for the same reason; tiny water droplets condense in the imperfections on the surface of the item. This is why using a film such as deluted soap solution works, it fills in some of these imperfections and prevents condensation in them.
    The other factor is temperature. If your warm moist breath hits a very cold anything, there will be some condensation. One way to minimize this is to keep your goggles as warm as possible while not wearing them. The best way I have found to do this is to keep them in poket close to your body (wrapping them appropriately as stated above) The closer the temp of the goggles is to the temp of your breath, the less condensation there will be

    Soap stops cohesion/surface tension in water so it doesn’t form droplets but spreads out in a film.

    For both my glasses and goggles I use Nikon’s lens defogger. It works and the towlettes are reuse able. It is much better then Cat Crap. AND keep the goggles off your head.
