|East§ide||/\ I was thinking the same thing. The anti-fog is probably donezo ... best way ive found to clean the inside of the lens is water and compressed air.. no rubbing at all, just using the air pressure to clear them off..|

One thing to keep in mind is that although everything you used may have taken care of the scratches there's a very strong chance that it destroyed the antifog coating also. It doesn't take much. It'll be awesome if they still work well but take a 2nd pair with you the first time you use them on the hill.

|zoom111||A lot of paintball guys have the same fogging/scartching issues as we do since most fields supply paper towels to clean stuff. Maybe creep......er lurk on some of their forums and see if there's any other fixes. I've heard of the stuff called cat crap (no joke) and apparently does a good job restoring that anti fogness|

Have to say,.. Cass, I'm suprised at you! I never would have suspected you would do something like that to your goggles. (...being a photographer myself I would NEVER use paper towel on anything I needed optical clarity.). I have pulled the tails n sleeves of the poly shirts to wipe goggles. Next time,...
Glad you were able to get a reasonable fix for the problem.

Haha sweet fix! I might have to try that, I have some small scratches.
Funny enough the last time I was at Whitefish I had brand new Spy's and they were fogging up... It was snowing, foggy and foggy goggles. I seriously didn't even know which way was down the friggin hill.
Ya so I hung them way high above the fireplace to dry them out at lunch, I guess not high enough because the lens warped haha (oops).
Had to replace the lens... no amount of plastic polish is going to fix that

Broke (and kinda fixed) the golden rule of goggles
it was rimey, and fogged over and i forgot my cloth, and i...wiped my goggles inside with liftline paper towels. it was that or go home for the day
foggy, light scratches all over the inside (duh)
so i googled it and saw that car polish could help, and i happened to have some NuFinish (the once a year car polish) and that actually did help, about 50% better
then i was in the autoparts store the other day and saw this polish for plastic (!) for headlight lenses, grabbed that and it was even better, i am back to about 90%, when they are on i really can't see any scratching
just a lil PSA, fyi for others so foolish
..and if anyone knows and even better fix, let's hear it
