How To Clean and De-Fog a Mask


Hi everyone,


This bit of advise will change your under water experience as there is nothing worse than a fogging mask! Luckily here at Dive Warehouse we care about your experience so we want to tell you exactly how to stop your mask from fogging up!


The first step that you need to do is grab yourself a mask cleaner and a mask antifog. The ones that we sell here are the Gear aid Sea Buff and Gear Aid Sea Drops . The Sea Buff is a cream that has an abrasive in it and this is the first product that you will need to use. Through the manufacturing process, a thin layer of silicone gets on the lens and the Sea Buff is designed to remove this layer.


To do this you will need to, on the lens on the inside only apply a small amount and buff it in to the glass. All of the masks that we have here are tempered glass so they will not get scratched. Rinse out the Sea Buff and do it again, the better the clean, the more chance you have of removing that silicone layer.


Next is to use the Sea Drops. This is a liquid that you put two drops in per lens when it is dry and run over to spread the liquid on the entire lens. Rinse it once before putting the mask on. The Sea Drops is the anti-fog that well prevent the fogging.


The Sea Buff cleaner only needs to be used on a new mask then every few months. The Sea Drops needs to be applied every use to put a fresh layer on the glass lens.


There are products out there that can be used instead of the above two items,  however they are not specifically designed to de-fog a mask so if you stick to the products that are designed for a dive mask then you can't go wrong.


Happy Diving and Snorkeling!
