1. In order not to damage the anti-fog layer when cleaning your goggles, carefully clean the lens with a soft tissue.
2. Store the goggles at a dry & well ventilated place after use to dispel sweat & humidity.
3. Avoid scrubbing the lens too frequently as it may reduce the performance of the anti-fog coating.
4. If possible, try it on while wearing your ski helmet to ensure the latter doesn't block your venting. Other tips to avoid fogging include not overdressing (this will cause your face and head to sweat more) and keeping your goggles on as much as possible during your ski day. Moving goggles to your forehead will cause the heat and moisture emanating there to fog up.
