I just checked and there are no instructions on the bottle.

+1 for dish soap.

DO NOT use any kind of dish soap with moisturizers for skin or anything. go to the dollar store, and the cheap as balls palmolive or sunlight shit.

rub on a little on both sides of the lens, and work it around with a soft rag. keep rubbing it until it dries (takes a little while - plus you quickly learn you don't need much). after it's dried, use a clean part of the rag to buff the lens.

you're done.

we use this method at my fire department for our SCBA masks - it sucks when you're in a burning building and your mask fogs up...

you probably don't have to do both sides for a helmet visor, but I do, and on the plus side the bugs come off the lens with just a little warm water.

I'm at the Chicago show now and was considering buying this stuff. Instead I'm spending the $20 on pizza and a coke at the Hyatt.

I also found the pinlock works great...until you're riding at night and the starburst effect blinds you when someone is headed towards you.

At this point, I removed my pinlock, and placed a piece of thin piece of weaterhstripping at the top of my visor where it meets the helmet, so I get extra airflow under the visor and it keeps rain from running down the inside of the shield.
If I'm only riding during the day, I put the double pane snowmobile visor on so NOTHING makes it fog up. (but it's starburst is worse than the pinlock)

..or I completely stop breathing.

Catcrap was better than Blaze, but doesn't seem much better than regular old dish soap.

Edit: with the exception that dish soap you have to reapply every day or 2, Catcrap seems to work for about 3 days.

I bought stuff at a show years and years ago. I keep the little screw top bottle in my tank bag. The night before we left the MOA rally in TN (2009) I did my faceshield and glasses. Sure enough get up in the morning and the fog was think maybe 1/4 mile visibility, less in other places. We hop on the highway and within minutes my buddy is struggling big time trying to see. We pull over and I lend him the stuff and he was good all the way until the sun came out (mid-morning). I do not remember the name off the top of my head it was M2000 or something like that. I have a pin lock on my current helmet and I love it.

The pinlock in my Neotech does work well for anti-fog.

but as mentioned above at night I get the sunburst and it really seems to reduce the visibility of any light at night.

Contact lenses.

I have the same problem, too.

Don't let your glasses get cold.

Saw the seller today at the Long Beach IMS. He said just to spray a light mist and let it dry until it's tacky. Then wipe it off. If it's still wet, you haven't waited long enough or you used too much.

I saw this stuff at the Seattle IMS. They had 2 booths, one in each hall. It seemed very pricey and I'm cynical by nature so wasn't even tempted.

McNett Op Drops works for me. Put a drop on each lens and rub with lens cloth.

I've tried everything with no luck until I started using this on my glasses when I kayak on a cold river. Warm air, cold water, instant fog. I've been routinely using it on a cold river under conditions that cause fogging and the stuff works when I remember to apply it.

Don't know how well it works for motorcycling cause I use a pinlock but suspect it will work fine.

Rub the pizza on the visor and wash it off the coke? How long does that last?
