5 Hacks for Preventing Your Glasses From Fogging Up When Wearing Face Masks

If you wear prescription glasses or sunglasses, you will notice that they fog up when you wear a face mask. This can be very uncomfortable since it decreases your vision. 5 Minute Crafts wants to show you 5 homemade methods for preventing your glasses from fogging up when wearing a face mask.

Why the use of a face mask fogs up your glasses

Your glasses are cold compared to your breath. When you exhale and warm air escapes over the top edge of the face mask, a clash between hot and cold occurs, causing fogging.

Trick 1: Soap and water

You will need:

  • Water
  • Liquid soap
  • A microfiber cloth

Procedure

  1. Wet your lenses with water.
  2. Rub them with liquid soap. Try to achieve a good lather.
  3. Rinse them with water. Try to remove all of the soapy residue.
  4. Dry them with a microfiber cloth.

Trick 2: Shaving foam

You will need:

  • Shaving foam
  • Water
  • A microfiber cloth

Procedure

  1. Put some shaving foam on your fingers.
  2. Gently rub the foam into the lenses of your glasses.
  3. Remove the foam with water and a microfiber cloth.

Trick 3: Bar soap

You will need:

  • Bar soap
  • A microfiber cloth

Procedure

  1. Take a dry bar of soap.
  2. Carefully rub it on the lenses of your glasses.
  3. Remove the dry soap with a slightly damp microfiber cloth.
  4. Your glasses are now ready to be used.

Trick 4: Paper masking tape

You will need:

  • Face mask
  • Paper masking tape

Procedure

  1. Put on the mask. Make sure it covers your nose and mouth. Press it over your septum to make it take the shape of your face.
  2. Cut a piece of tape.
  3. Stick it over the mask and the septum area of your nose.
  4. Put on your glasses. They should fit over the mask.
  • If you don’t have tape, you can also use a band aid.

Trick 5: Tissue paper

You will need:

  • Face mask
  • Tissue paper or toilet paper
  • Paper masking tape

Procedure

  1. Before putting on the mask, place a piece of toilet or tissue paper inside.
  2. The paper should be trapped between your nose and the area of the moldable fastener that comes inside the mask.
  3. Put on the mask, holding the paper so that it does not fall out.
  4. Tape the mask to the septum of your nose.
