How do I stop goggles from fogging?
Foggy goggles are a nightmare! When you buy a new pair of goggles try your hardest not to wipe the lenses as nearly all goggles come with an anti-fog film. If you do need to wipe, dunk under the water or give a lick.
After a while that film will wear off but you can prolong it by keeping the goggles clean with diluted baby shampoo and storing them in a case.
