i watched a lot Muc-Off motorcycle products recently, and in the box was a small Muc-Off Premium Anti-Fog Treatment Pump Spray Bottle.
With the winter here, it has cooled considerably in the Pacific Northwest. It’s getting easier and easier to get the right temperature and dew point for misting glasses and face shields. Luckily it started to rain and the temperature dropped to 49 degrees, perfect foggy weather.
The instructions are written on the back of the bottle in such a small font that I had to take a high-res photo of it and read it in my photo gallery. To keep it simple, shake the bottle, spray a thin layer on either side of your goggles or the visor of your motorcycle helmet. Wipe off with a tissue. The result is claimed to be the absence of fogging on the glasses or face shields.
I went outside, blew on my everyday glasses several times, and they fogged up. I went back inside, sprayed a light coating on both sides of the lenses, and wiped them down with toilet paper (our tissues have aloe vera on them). I immediately went back outside and blew on my glasses, and they didn’t fog up. So I not only found a solution to keep my glasses fog-free when I ride early in the morning or in the rain, but also when I wear a face mask when required.
The next test was a helmet face shield. Some manufacturers make their anti-fog shields at the factory, while others have an inlaid anti-fog shield that attaches to the inside of a standard shield via pin locks. When enlarged to a readable condition, I found that the instructions told me not to use the Muc-Off Premium anti-fog treatment on an already anti-fog surface and to use a cloth rather than a microfiber cloth to dry it after application.
I took out the helmet and blew on the shield, and it immediately fogged up. I brought it inside and sprayed about half of the inside. You can also spray the outside to help disperse the rain. After carefully drying the Muc-Off side of the screen with toilet paper, I took it outside and almost passed out from the hyperventilating, trying to catch my breath to mist the Muc side. -Off the face shield.
It just works. After using it for a while, I have determined that you can wipe it off as easily as you can wipe it off. If you treat your glasses and then clean them, you will remove the Premium Muc-Off Anti-Fog Treatment. Ditto with the coating of the shield. The bottle says the anti-fog coating will last for five days. In my testing, this is correct, if you don’t touch or clean the surface. Exceeding claims it still worked on the face shield after 10 days as the inside of the face shield was left untouched.
After a little practice, I figured out that I could coat both lenses of my glasses with a single pump by holding my glasses almost parallel to the spray. Ditto with the shield. I learned to use fewer push-ups to get the same coverage. I didn’t count the squirts in the 1.1 ounce bottle, but you don’t use a lot with each application. You get a lot of anti-fog for $ 15 MSRP.
The Muc-Off Premium Anti-Fog Treatment Bottle is small enough and the toilet paper is plentiful (luckily) to take both with you if you expect to have fogging issues where you touch the treated surfaces. In a world where products are typically subject to personal preference and experience bias, this product stands out by doing what its name suggests: anti-fog.
