Q:
Does anybody have any ideas for what I can put on my eyeglasses to keep them from fogging up when I’m hunting? I can’t see without them and it’s a constant battle to keep them clear, especially when I’m wearing a facemask.

Thanks everybody for the ideas! I always try to keep my nose out DSM, but it always seems to find its way back in. So, I took Trudeau’s idea and cut the bridge piece out. Great minds think alike, Piney. I was thinking about what JM had suggested with the soap and it hit me that I use Rain-X washer fluid in my truck. So, I cleaned my glasses with that and it seemed to work this morning. Maybe not a true test though, since today was kind of like bow hunting in summer. I’m going to bottle some and use it as my new glasses cleaner and see what happens in the cold.

Just now thought of it---Wonder if Rain-X would work?

I keep my nose out of my mask. Otherwise I fog up.

maybe put ski goggles over your glasses?

Here's a thought but it might be expensive. If contacts are out of the question maybe look into glasses/goggles that you sometimes see professional basketball players wearing. I think the problem is moisture getting on the inside of the lense mostly right? If not this idea might not work.

I've tried everything out there from soapy spit to any commercial anti-fog you can name and none of them work when the air is cool and your face is warm, especially if there's any humidity in the air. I had to get contacts to turkey hunt with--couldn't stand not being able to see the gobbler, and there's no way to clear the fog without spooking him.

I have this same issue! I would try finding a face mask with a slit for your nose. I t kind of sticks out and looks weird but it might solve your problem.
Good Luck,

Try putting a thin layer of soap on them(use soapy water). I have done it with swimming goggles, so I think it would work on glasses.

I don't wear glasses myself, so maybe I'm not the best person to advise on this, but I would say that if the facemask is the main issue, wearing face paint instead would take care of the problem.
