take the lens out, wash the rest, take a blowdryer (don't use heat if you're a pussy) to the foam between the dual-lens and evaporate/force that moisture out

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

If they keep fogging up between then too much moisture is getting there. Try drying them out and close up the venting. If that doesn't work then you might need new lenses

It's probably too late now, but when you get new goggles, try not to touch the inside of the lens. If you must, take your goggle bag, flip it inside out and wipe it with that.

(also, i heard bandaids absorb moisture when you stick em on the inside of your goggles. never tried it, but i hear it works a bit)

ps. dont close up your vents...

Do as legal stated. Once you've dried out the lenses, see if there is a crack in the seal between the two lenses. If so, seal it back up. Once the sealant dries, you should be good to go.

Negative, sorry. Try just taking a hair dryer and just aim it on that spot for a little bit.
