Unless everybody already knows you look like an idiot, but then it doesn’t really matter.

My problem with spit is that it can be a challenge for me to get right. I’ve always had that problem with diving masks and goggles. And I got weird looks when I tried that with my glasses… Anyway, that’s a good suggestion too.

Weird!

I can’t find any reasons spit doesn’t work for people. Some recommend letting it sit there and stew for awhile before wiping it off. Baby shampoo and toothpaste are also given as options, but at that point you may as well use an anti-fog compound.

FWIU, these are all the same concept as Rain-X (fills surface imperfections), so that may be worth a try.

Wayyyyyy back in the day when I was a kid and started wearing glasses, I had glass cleaner that seemed to be basically wax/paraffin. It cleaned the glasses really well, and left the lenses fog-proof for a good long while. Great for winter and coming inside after being outside in the cold.

Am I correctly reading that as extortion?

Looks like it to me. Lame, and juvenile.

I’ve heard of Cat Crap. It’s another wax product, IIRC. The only issue I’ve ever seen with eyewear waxes is that you have to spend a little time applying them, then polishing afterward. For an everyday wear item, that’s a non-issue.

Same deal with Rain-X. Much buffing required.

Much, much buffing, if I recall. Tried it once, and that was enough for me. Never used the rest of the bottle.

That might be because it was left on too long. i generally use Aquapel, and like the amount of time it takes to apply it can be too long with a large surface. Windshield size really needs to be split into 4 separate sections.

I haven’t had much trouble with Rain-X, but I’ve only applied that to the 6” diameter dome of a GoPro underwater housing.


As a semi-on-topic aside, haven’t put any on recently because COVID seems to have brought back some insect population, and my windshield is pretty scuzzed.
