Since you've already wiped your goggles, do you notice them fogging up a lot now? If so then you can put some Cat Crap on the inside or buy a replacement lens.
Yup, noticed them fogging alot more. Ill try cat crap. Got 2 of those for my parents as stocking stuffers this year but didnt think id need them. Thanks

I have a pair of APXs.

You can always try to do the final rinse with some RODI water and have no water stains. Essentially, RO water has no impurities (minerals) to be left behind when it dries. Also good for rinsing the car and letting air dry (saves time not using a shamois).

that sounds like a good idea. i always hate when i forget to take my goggles out of the bag when i get home after a spring or pow day and the next day the lenses have moisture in between the lens.

Shit, the way some of you are talking I could be mistaken that I'm going to loose my fucking finger by putting it near the inside of my goggles.

Exactly. Just make sure you don't do it when they are wet...wiping them gently when its dry with a microfibre will be fine.
