Any suggestion on how to deal with a fogging visor?

The rink I play at is always more hot than it should be. In turn my visor seems to fog up more than it should.

I have the I-tech visor, and it never used to do this.

I rinse my visor with water and a soft cloth before everytime I hit the ice, but it seems like the moment I sit on the bench it starts fogging up.

Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to eliminate it?

Anti fog spray, Shampoo, dish soap. Or you could just deal with it fogging on the bench as long as it doesn't fog on the ice you should be fine.

You're in Keller? Do you play over in Euless, or perhaps Farmers Branch?

Not with a hockey visor, but with ski goggles, I've had good luck with a very thin film of shampoo.

I wear a Bauer half shield type visor with a good anti fog coating on the inside. It is an HS22 straight cut visor .... when sitting there and fog does form on it (which is rare) about two strides into skating off the bench and it clears right up completely.

I have NO complaints with it .... it only fogs when it is pretty humid out but never when actually playing.

I asked this same question here a year or two ago. The best advice? Shampoo or liquid soap. I'd show up to the rink, go to the bathroom and slather on some hand soap, wiping off the excess with a paper towel. Works like a charm, and better than the anti-fog spray I bought.

best thing I've ever used is Pledge. Preferably lemon Pledge because it smells half decent lol...spray the inside of the visor, let sit a few mins, then wipe away. Works great
