Ever since I bought and used this cleaner, it has somehow won a special place in my heart.

Normally I would resort to DIYs like using toothpaste and the rest to clear up defogging from my snorkel masks, which works by the way.

However, this anti-fog cleaner (not the spray) has saved me a lot of time and energy, how come? You may ask.

Well, even though they work, whenever I use something like baby shampoo or toothpaste to defog my dive AKA snorkel masks, the are no instructions on how much or how little to use, in what direction to apply, and so forth.

With this anti-fog, they are instructions, directions and I love those, it is just a case of choosing to drive an automatic car over a manual car.

  2. Then I use my fingers to spread evenly across each lens,
  3. Next, I also gently scrub with my fingers to remove any build-up dirt or grease.
  4. Finally, I rinse thoroughly and I can use it almost immediately.

What are the cons of the Sea Drops anti-fog lens cleaner?

As far as I know, the only con of Sea Drops anti-fog lens cleaner is that they cannot be used on swim goggles.

I don’t like this because it means that if you also own swim goggles, you have to buy the special spray too.

Nevertheless, this isn’t quite a con per se as this special spray that is made for swimming goggles can also be used for snorkel masks, dive masks, and even sunglasses too.
