    Does the Liquid Skin mask need the glass scrubbed when new to help prevent fogging?

    I would say clean the new mask well with a non abrasive detergent, warm water, and a non abrasive cloth. I use baby shampoo on my mares lenses as an anti-fog agent. It beats anything I have tried including everything commercial and spit. Sometimes I just finger baby shampoo on the lens, jump in while the shampoo is wet, then rinse the mask after and I enter the water and go. I do this in both salt and fresh water. Your mileage may vary.

    That's what I have used on my other mask and it has always worked pretty good, I've been told that some mask have anti fog treatments on the lenses and thought I would make sure the Mares did'nt before I scrubbed it off!:D

    Thanks for the info, I'll have to try some baby shampoo and see what kind of results I get.

    Thanks everyone for the quick responses! :wink:

    Yup, Toothpaste to clear off the Silicone Residue from the manufacturing process and baby shampoo to keep your mask fog free!
