How to stop your glasses fogging

Video transcript
Hi everyone. So, now we are all wearing masks awful lot more, I thought I'd share with you a couple of things that we've been doing to make the new steaming-up problem a thing of the past.

So, the first thing I'm going to do it show you how this cloth works. This is a dry multiple use cloth. So if I use that just by wiping it on my glasses. I'm just going to do it on this side. And so specifically for anti-fog, and I'm going to breathe as heavily as I can and try and fog up this lens. So you can probably see the difference already.

I didn't have to do anything weird like run washing up liquid or toothpaste or god knows what else onto my glasses.

Next I'm going to use the cloth that comes with your glasses. These are actually specific anti-fog lenses so they are coated with an anti-fog product. I realise people don't tend to breathe like a weirdo into their masks but there is no fog in there at all.

If you find you have a problem with fogging, you can get a pair specifically designed and it's worked wonders for me.

These cloths, like I say, are great if you don't have or already have a pair of glasses that you want to improve but don't want to change the lenses so it's multiple-use dry-wipe. If you need something more specific, you can get anti-fog coatings on your lenses.
