Solution to fogging glasses with dust mask?

I've heard certain 3m ones are made for this but looking for some experiences before I buy a box or so. (I have to feed with an open station tractor for some groups and end up shoveling a bin or camping out in the feedroom with the rollermill about once a week, so this has went from a "it's not that bad" to "there's gotta be a better way")

I guess to me it looks like the "hood" versions(papr) with the separate blower is a foolproof way, but they're a little spendy.

I have tried the "tape" and putting soap on the glasses methods, but neither work.

Paint mask with the side cartridges is what I use. 30 bucks for the cheap ones and works great

The side cartridge idea sounds good.

Think of it this way: no one has yet solved the problem of safety glasses fogging in the winter on job sites. Think of the billions of man hours worked and we still bring it up with the site representative that glasses are fogging and it is safer to take them off then continue working with poor visibility.

Laser eye surgery was the way I solved the problem.

The cartridge style ones are what I use. They fit better around my nose. Any of the cheaper disposable ones didn’t work

Move somewhere warmer? Only advice I have. I'm lucky, don't wear glasses. My wife had laser surgery, have a video if you want to see it! Not for a weak stomach!


It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
