Geo and Yor_n you both need to invest in a small can of inexpensive shaving cream... you know the foam kind in a pump can. You use a small amount on a soft cloth and it helps to keep fog free. Use a rag and wipe clean the inside of visor window etc with the foam..... It stops the visor from steaming over etc.. It works for a few days in our experience here, but it does depend on how much you use it. Rub it in, cleaning the whole inside surface with the foam, allowing a fog free coating that really helps a lot! ITS ALSO CHEAP AND WORKS ON BATHROOM MIRRORS DURING SHOWER TIMES.

I used it on my VW's they had horrible heaters, that were awful in those 6 volt systems, about fogging up windows.. This was very helpful, but remember to keep it in the vehicle! LOL, It worked for a few days depending on the moisture... Then just repeat as needed!

Nice tip Karen.
Thanks!

Thanks Karen.  I have found it to work on bathroom mirrors, and this reminds me that I wondered about its use on a car, specifically side mirrors that are so small and critical, yet don't clear easily of moisture. 

Your welcome.. I liked it it worked better then no vision..LOL..It really helped...
I think someone told me hairspray too, but I never tried that one so do not know if it works.

Who was Lorraine as in the song "I can see clearly now that Lorraine has gone"?
BTW, I can't see hairspray working as an anti fog agent.

Hey Like I said I never tried the hairspray one, but only heard it worked, but the shaving cream I did try and use it in my shower regularly!

Geo...If you have not fixed that my ex-husband is a biker and he says something that really works reliably for the outside of the visor is something called "Maguires Mirror glaze," plastic cleaner and polish. It's a thick liquid....use as directed.. look up on net.He says it really repels that water away!

Thats terrible... I wish all of the others had worked well enough to help in the down pours...Well did your new visor help? I hope so.. Please do be careful and take care! No wall crashing allowed!!!
