A thin, clear film of natural soap prevents fog from forming on glass and plastic! Anti-fog treatment is easy to apply and effectively prevents fog from forming on glass and plastic items, such as eyeglasses, safety glasses, sunglasses, swimming goggles, motorcycle helmet face shields, and camera lenses. The only ingredient is natural soap. Use unscented natural soap, such as Pallas Athene Soap's Pure Soap, which is available in the Handmade Natural Soap store(http://stores.ebay.com/Handmade-Natural-Soap
). Natural soap contains only saponified olive and vegetable oils. Cleansing bars, detergent bars, and facial bars often do not contain enough glycerin to prevent the formation of fog; furthermore, they may contain other insoluble ingredients that may be abrasive and may scratch plastic. Only use natural soap as an anti-fog treatment!
1 dry bar of Pure Soap
fingertip or cotton swab
clean soft cotton cloth
glass or plastic item, such as eyeglasses, safety glasses, sunglasses, swimming goggles, motorcycle helmet face shield, or camera lens
Step 1: Moisten Fingertip or Cotton Swab and Apply to Soap Bar.
Either run finger or cotton swab under water faucet or dip finger or cotton swab into water to moisten. Cotton swab will hold water; when using finger, allow 1 drop of water to remain clinging to fingertip. For a few seconds, lightly rub moistened fingertip or cotton swab in a small circle on the surface of the bar of soap.
Step 2: Use Fingertip or Cotton Swab to Apply a Thin Coating of Soap to Item.
Before soap dries on fingertip or cotton swab, immediately apply soapy fingertip or soapy cotton swab to the item to be treated. Lightly rub a thin coating of soapy film onto the item. Apply a very thin coating to both sides of glasses. Apply a very thin coating to the inside of motorcycle helmet face shields to prevent fog from forming on the inside of the face shield. For larger items, it may be necessary to re-moisten and re-soap fingertip or cotton swab and re-apply to the item. Completely cover the item surface with a thin coating of soap; do not apply a thick coating. Allow the thin coating of soap to dry completely.
Step 3: Buff the Item.
Using a clean and dry soft cotton cloth, buff the item with a circular motion to remove the dried soap film. (This step is somewhat similar to buffing wax off of a car.) Item is ready for use when visibility through item is restored and dried soap film appears to have been removed.
Directions for Maintenance of Anti-Fog Treatment:
Under normal conditions, the treated item will continue to remain fog-free for several weeks. The invisible anti-fog soapy film will rinse off with water and will need to be re-applied to the item after the item is thoroughly cleaned or after the item has been wet. If fog forms on the item, re-apply a thin film of soap, allow the soapy haze to dry completely, and re-buff the item.
