Foggy Goggles

Are You Struggling with Foggy Goggles?
 Foggy Goggles are no fun!!  We Googled about Goggles and our Swim Team staff recommends the following solutions:


To clean your goggles
Rinse your swim goggles under warm tap water.  Take a Q-tip and dip it into some baby shampoo. Spread the shampoo around the outside and the inside of the frames of your goggles.  Rinse the shampoo off, making sure to get off all the of baby shampoo.  Air dry on a towel.  After they are dried, take vinegar and go over the outside and the inside of the goggles to remove water deposits.
To sterilize your swim goggles
Add 3 tablespoons of Borax to a bowl of warm water.  (Borax is a type of laundry detergent.)  Mix until the water becomes cloudy. Soak your goggles for up to 15 minutes.  Remove them from the bowl, rinse them under warm tap water and dry with a soft lens cloth. Dip the lens cloth in vinegar and clean the inside and the outside of the goggles to remove any remaining Borax or water deposits.  Dry again with a clean lens cloth.
