Clorox Bathroom Wipes with Teflon
found at: HEB
discovered by: mCoupe11
price: $2.63/32 wipes

Effectiveness:
100%. You will NOT fog. If you wipe your bathroom mirror, then it will not fog in the place you wiped.

Suggestion:
If your goggles already have some kind of anti-fog or anti-glare coating, I have no idea how this wipe will react with it.

Good Find! Now there is not need to go out and buy Goggles with built in fans.:)

Any indication that there aren't chemicals in the wipes that won't adversely affect polycarbonate or other plastics?

Some such treatments aren't meant for plastics and will actually permanently cloud the lens, so just be aware.

My lenses are fine thus far. I'll report back here if they become cloudy over time.

I've been using this stuff for a while. It works well. My lenses are fine in terms of clarity, but I've not yet tested their integrity after repeated use of the wipes. As soon as I get my AEGs back up and running, I'm going to see how well the lens holds up.

When I raced motocross, I was advised to never clean my goggles with windex. It weakened the lense. As windex is for glass and these wipes are also, I can imagine these wipes have the same affect on lenses as well. They are for glass, not plastics. But who knows, it could very well be possible that it has no affect on the lense at all. I'm not so sure I want to risk my eyesight though..

You guys should just go to a scuba shop and get a 5.99$ bottle of one of the many anti-fog solutions that are out. They're cheap, and a 'dabll doo ya'.

I know they're safe for plastics. :)

I'm not asserting that the teflon wipes are 100% safe to use on all lenses, but today I tested out the integrity of two separate ESS lenses on which the wipes had been used. I fired at point-blank range with an AEG upgraded with an M120 spring. Both lenses held up to multiple hits.

Obviously, I like the fact that the teflon absolutely will not permit fogging. DrNo, if you could mention a particular product with a similar level of effectiveness but which is formulated for use on plastic lenses, I'd be very interested in trying it out.

I picked a pack of the Clorox up today at HEB. It says that it is safe for plastic. And they also leave a fresh, clean scent. :)

"It says that it is safe for plastic"

Good deal. I'll probably go pick some up as well.

The weird thing is that it does not say anything about glass. But, yes it does say plastic.

Sweet. I'll go pick some up once I start playing again.

I think I would rather have a fresh clean scent then anti-fog anyway! :)

Just picked some of these up tonight. Will report back after I see how well they work at Sunday's game.

Worked good for me last Sunday.

And also, don't you have turbo cams?

Yep. I bought these because they are obscenely cheap and I would rather not use my fan unless I have to and save batteries.

I think you can buy batteries for about the same price. I use my turbo cams all the time and hardly ever have to replace the batteries.

Hmmm...seems like one of my Turbo Cam lenses is funny. I wiped both the inside and outside lense with one of these wipes, and tested it out by blowing hot breath on the lenses. The inner lense WILL NOT fog at all, but the outer lense still does...Oh well. I'm glad the outer lense isn't the one that fogs when you're wearing them.

TurboCams barely take much battery power. I've had mine for over a year and only had to change the batteries once. You could even buy rechargeable batteries if you were that concerned about it.

Agreed, changed the batts in mine once as well over a year. TurboCams is one of my best Airsoft purchases.

Where is HEB? What is HEB? Is it an acronym?

HEB is a grocery store chain in Texas.

Ah, oh well. I found them at Eckards anyways, thanks.
