Hi everyone, since i'm sure everyone here know's a little about everyone else and since i'm new here, here's a little background on me. I live in connecticut, am a graduate of SUNY Cobleskill Class of 2002 with a A.A.S. degree in Agronomy (crop production and soil science) working in a grocery wholesale distribution warehouse (in the -20 degree freezer) until i find a job in my major. Worked in greenhouses all through high school and some of college and my grandfathers farm pretty much all my life. I don't exactly live in the country at the moment but i plan to as soon as i get a little more finacially able to. And while i don't have all that much life experience (21 years) I'll try to help answer any questions in this forum to the best of my ability as i am sure you would do for any of my questions. Which i have one, since the weather has been warming up and the humidity has also gone up, when i get out of the freezer section of the warehouse a nice layer of ice forms on my glasses i was wondering if there are any ways to prevent this from happening, i already tried rainx antifog it helped a little, but not enough.

Hello Matt
Why don't you get an old pair to wear in the freezer and leave you normal pair out where it's warm then just slip on the warm pair when you get out of the freezer then leave the other pair right in the freezer or what ever .

Hey Matt!

I appointed myself as the PR welcome group-leader for the KL forum.

Warm Regards

Patria most times our welcome leader use to show up in a cheerleader outfit and shake her pompoms.

How about a little spit? If I recall divers lick their masks
or goggles stop them from fogging up. Of course you
are in a slightly different situation - what's to hurt?

Welcome Matt, glad to have you!

Don't know a solution to your problem, though. Had similar problem for awhile and just quit wearing glasses while tried contacts?

You might also ask your eye doctor if you haven't yet; sometimes they know of solutions to problems but can't volunteer the info if they don't know about the problem.

anyway, good luck and welcome.

Hi Matt :) I have the same problem, only to a lesser degree, I guess. I live in Texas and when I go outside from the air conditioned house into what feels like a sauna, my glasses fog up something terrible too. The only way I know of is to bring the temperature of the glasses back to nearer the same as where you are. Maybe if you could keep a small hair dryer there at work and take your glasses off when you get out of the cooler and blow dry them? That's all I can think of other than the coating treatments for keeping windshields from fogging, and I don't know how good that is for your glasses. I'd ask your optician if they have something of that sort. What I do here is take my glasses off and hold them in the sun a few minutes.

Welcome Matt !! The more the merrier....I honestly don't know if there is a cure to keep the glasses from fogging up like that but if there is one you'll likely hear of it on this forum.Be patient tho....sometimes things move slow here... :^)

Welcome to the site. Lots of info here. I am a city to country person, thus have limited farm knowledge- I'm learning.

I am not sure this will work. Snowmobilers use an anti-fog solution on their face shields. I have use this with success on construction worker glasses that fog up. The extreme temperature range of your application is interesting.

Matt    Posted 06-19-2003 at 10:34:50       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I have tried one brand of anti-fog solution it slowed down the fog/ice buildup but it didn't stop it for long, as you said the extreme temperature range could be to blame. Going from -20 area of the warehouse to the 35 degree docks to the 55 degree docks to the warmup room in a matter of about two minutes is probably too big a temp change in too short a time, almost 95 degrees difference. Or maybe the anti-fog solution that snowmobilers use is different than the one i tried. i'm sure we'll figure something out.

Can already tell that this is a great forum with great people, glad i stumbled into it.
