This easy-to-use View Swim by Tusa Mask and Goggles Anti-Fog treatment will remove the build up of oils which can prevent the anti fog coating from working effectively. The View Antifog long lasting coating is applied to masks and swimming goggles in a pristine environment, totally dust free.

Mask Defoggers Explained
Regardless of the brand or type of defog there are basically only two ways to defog your mask, either coat the lens with an inhibitor (gels like SeaGold, and of course 'spit') or make the lens very clean so fog doesn't form (surfactants like SeaQuick and SeaDrops). Both approaches work equally well but require different application methods so it's mostly a matter of personal preference.
- A cleaning spray is the most popular approach because it's quick and easy. Generously spray the inside of the mask lens, rub and rinse completely to remove. If the lens is not 'squeaky clean' then repeat and perhaps rub a bit harder.
- The liquid drops are a concentrated version of the spray type cleaners. If you like the concentrated drop cleaners, a convenient alternative is a travel size of Johnsons 'No More Tears' Baby Shampoo®.
- With the gel, apply a thin even coating to the inside of the mask lens (more is not better) and lightly rinse to smooth out the coating. Do NOT completely rinse or rub away the gel, remember you want a light coating of the gel on the lens.
Every once in a while it doesn't hurt to also clean the outside of the mask lens. It won't help to prevent fogging but you'll see better if the lens is clean on both sides! By the way, we are not big fans of the 'mask bucket' found on many dive boats. When everyone is rinsing their masks in the same bucket, they are sharing their bacteria and viruses with everyone else. We avoid that by rinsing our masks in seawater (works fine), fresh water from the shower hose if there is one, or even bottled water as a last resort.
