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).

Well, if you aren't suppose to touch the inside of the lenses with anything than I failed. I've gotten snow and water on the inside while riding and it fogged up alot that day so I wiped the inside with the soft bag the goggles came with. Is that okay or still no? And if you get snow or water in, how do you fix that if you aren't suppose to wipe?

I have a pair of APXs.

You probably wiped away much of the anti-fog coating, which leads to easier fogging from there on. If you get snow inside your goggles then just shake it out as best as possible and let it dry on its own. You can blot if you must, but I avoid even doing that.

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.
