So I've been playing around with some anti fog solutions and pads for awhile now. I've tried mossy oak wipes and another brand I don't remember. Helped very little. I've used the pj's brand and rainx liquid with a little better results. But just not quite there yet. I've been testing some z-clear brand paste at work with some mixed but promising results. But the stuff is expensive! Besides leaving them open a Crack or heated shields, has anyone found the magic cure for fogged lenses and shields? I would be using it for skiing and snowmobiling and motorcycling. Any one have some good luck with anything?
So Dan will that work to restore a clear shield?
Can it be used to buff?
Personally I have found that the heated shield is by far THE way to go!
I have a fairly cheap helmet with the electric shield and it will even heat my face!
Cat Crap won't work to restore a shield, only to help prevent it from fogging.
The face shield on my helmet was all scratched up and I used the stuff you use to polish plastic headlights. It came out good enough that even though I purchased a new lens for the helmet, I didn't install it, as it was good enough to use to ride. I tried it on a whim and was happy with the results.

Also thanks Dan. I've seen cat crap posted on some reviews. I may try it but I'm thinking it's about like the stuff I'm trying out now. At work here I'm subjecting it to extreme Temps and humidity. So maybe nothing would hold up to that. Going from outside Temps in the low 30's to 100 degrees and 100% humidity
I like cat crap because it's a paste and doesn't evaporate or spill in my pack/coat pocket. It's not perfect, but is a lot better than nothing.
I may try some of the "fog tech" product the reviewer chose as his #1, just to see how it works. I'm always on the lookout for products that make it better to see, especially on those rainy, dreary days where you are sweating your rear off and there's a lot of humidity in the helmet... it's hard for any product to prevent fogging on those days...
That said, the product the reviewer likes best has about the same rating for reviews as what I am using now, so it's true what they say; you pays your money and you takes your chances
