Lense cleaner / anti fog

A long time ago I bought a small container of a product called Star Brite at the Sportsmans Show in Denver.
My impression is that it was a small company, maybe run out of someone's kitchen, but it really works great.
Now, I can't find anything about them or the product.
It looks a bit like a wax and is a dull yellow color.
Does anybody have a DIY recipe for this?

This is a line of Marine cleaners/polishers, or was a few years ago. Try a Marine dealer or the internet.. They had good products.

Hand soap in the squirt bottles. Put a drop on your finger or thumb, rub it gently on the lens without water and then wipe it off with a soft lens cloth. Works as well as any of the commercial stuff I have found. But then I only use it on my eye glasses. The soap will leave a clear residue after buffing that will inhibit the fogging.

Spit on your fingers and wipe off lens with your shirt tail, handy and works most of the time I think!! Great for scope lens.

Use to use plug tobacco as a anti fog on the inside light on diving helmets.

The best anti fog for diving is the old original COLGATE toothpaste!

Better than any commercial product I have tried on a diving mask.

For less than 5.00 I buy a big box of individual moist wipes made by Zeiss. Can't recall if 100 or 200 in a box.


Keep yer powder dry and yer knife sharp.

For 5.00 I get a box of moist wipes at Wal Mart. Don't know who makes them but says Zeiss on the box, either 100 or 200 in a box. May not be as cheap as some but mighty handy to put in a back pack or throw in the glove box.

I do the same thing..

100 zeiss wipes are $5.99 at the vision center @ walmart.. I keep a handful in my pack and use them on binos, my scope, etc.. at 6 cents each its a pretty cheap solution that is packaged in a way that allows you to take a lightweight option to the field that takes up almost no space, etc..

All that said, a mild hand soap diluted with water is a great solution too.. I used to keep a small squirt bottle of about 10 drops of palmolive diluted in about 2oz of water in my dive bag.. worked great on my mask for cleaning and keeping it fog free for a dive or two before I would have to hit it again..
