How to keep your mask fog free:
All of our masks here at DiversWorld are made from 100% silicone with tempered glass. When a mask is made, it gets a thin layer of silicone on the inside of the glass. This is what causes it to fog. Anti-fog’s will not work until it has been pre-cleaned, as to work it needs to reach the glass and with the silicone layer covering this, it cant work.
To remove this layer of silicone, you will need to purchase a pre-cleaner or you can use toothpaste. These products have a slight abrasive in it and will scrub off that silicone layer. A blob of paste on to each lenses on the inside only, give it a good scrub and rinse off with fresh water.
Repeat this process 3 times to ensure you have scrubbed off all of the silicone layer, then you can anti-fog. The glass will not get scratched as it is tempered.
You can purchase a good quality anti-fog here at DiversWorld, or you can spit or lick the inside of the lens as spit is a natural anti-fog! After you have cleaned your mask and are no longer fogging, you will need to wash your gear after every use to prevent it from perishing.
How to look after your mask:
The best way to clean you mask and snorkel is to put them in a tub of fresh warm water and give them a good rinse.
This will take off all of the salt and sand that you get from the ocean.
Store them away in a dark dry place to prevent the silicone from turning an off color.
The sun will do this if you store them in direct sunlight
