How to Stop Eyeglasses From Fogging While Wearing Facemask

I need to wear a facemask and I don't wear contacts.

I remember there being something you can wipe on your eyeglasses  --before using-- to prevent them from fogging.  Anyone remember what that was?

There is a product called Rain-X which is available at all auto parts stores and probably at Walmart as well.  It's intended for windshields but I see no reason it couldn't be applied to eyeglasses without protective coatings.  However, if your glasses are coated I wouldn't try it because Rain-X lists acidified something-or-other in the ingredients.  It wouldn't need much acid to eat off metal-based anti-glare coatings.

As SCUBA divers we spit in the masks before going diving and it worked splendidly.

Any kind of detergent wiped over the inside surface works the same way as spit! A tiny spot of neat dishwashing liquid wiped on the inside of glasses works well. Also if you're getting misting then your glasses are at a lower temperature that your breath so just running them under hot water will fix this too!
