How to keep a face shield from fogging?
Nov 26th, 2017 at 9:38pm
 
I am looking for a method to keep my face shield from fogging up.

I've tried a lot of different methods. Is there one of more that actually works?

Have you tried plexiglass spray, suppose to reduce static. My face shield is 1/2 plexiglass and bottom half is a screen, I wear a dust mask under it, the kind you get at the dentist.

I've never tried it, but I've been told that fabric softener will stop the fogging. You just apply some to a paper towel, and wipe the inside of the faceshield with it.

I bought a large box of glasses cleaners at Harbor Freight a while ago.  They advertises as being anti-fog.  While they were wet, they worked well on my glasses and my face shields.  I didn't use them fast enough and about half dried out.
