    Baby shampoo. I usually dilute with water about 50/50 (but will work if more diluted too). Then put the mixture into a small travel bottle. Works great.

    500 psi, it's grainy like toothpaste, but keep the mask from fogging up for many hours.

    Spit or J&J Baby shampoo, the latter is preferred if you want to share it on the boat :D

    Must try that with my spit :wink:

    I have used diluted baby shampoo with mixed results. However, since using full strength baby shampoo and applying it like Sea Gold and other premium defoggers, I have not had any fogging issue. It is cheap too.

    I use baby shampoo too. It works fine, it's cheap and I think it does more to keep my mask from developing cooties than spit does....

    The sea drops work fine too but I only use the for giving lessons. I don't like to see students spitting in the same masks that someone else is going to be using tomorrow. So the shop gives me a bottle of it and I can use it to make the point that the rental masks are probably a health hazard. Oo

    What's the difference between spit and snot coming out of their nose and into the mask?

    Snot is slimier. Usually.

    Thank you for the info! However, i was actually referring to the baby shampoo. :D

    I've heard about the fire thing, but i can't help but be a little wary of using fire on something. :flame:

    Good point. Yet another reason to buy your own mask :D
