Mask Defog and Care Products

Most lenses need to be cleaned to remove silicone preservatives and materials that may be left from the manufacturing process.*  If this is not done, the defog product of your choice simply can't do the job.  Put a little white (non-gel) toothpaste on the lenses and rub it around well with your fingers.  Then, rinse the lenses with fresh water and gently dry the mask with a towel or let it air dry before putting it in the mask box and packing it in your bag.
*There are a few exceptions (such as most masks with colored lenses) that should not be cleaned with the "toothpaste trick".  These masks will usually come with special instructions or cleaning materials.

Frog Spit mask defog | Available at Scuba Center in Eagan, Minnesota and Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

Frog Spit defog for scuba & snorkel masks and swimming goggles.

Frog Spit is Earth friendly containing NO harmful silicone, alcohol or other petroleum distillates found in many anti-fog sprays. Frog Spit is specially formulated to simply apply and let dry unlike other brands on the market that require rinsing or buffing, which can in-effect remove up much of the just-applied anti fog coating. Frog Spit anti-fog solutions go on evenly, in a single transparent layer providing maximum protection against fogging. Frog Spit also has a pleasant tropical fragrance and is safe and effective for use on any type of lens, plastic goggles, face shields and protective eye wear.

Directions for use:

For optimal effectiveness start with a clean, dry surface. Apply one or two drops (depending on area size) onto the surface. With a clean finger tip evenly spread a thin layer over entire surface and let it dry. Reapply as needed.

Full directions are printed on the bottle. Each BIG 2 oz. bottle contains enough Frog Spit antifog solution to last for hundreds of applications.
