4. When rinsing the goggles, never use alcohol-based solutions, they may corrode the lenses, and greatly reduce the anti-fog function.

5. When the surface of the lenses has grime, choose a neutral detergent to clean them. Or use some anti-fog sprays and de-fogging solutions that will help to keep the lenses clear for your next swim.

6. Gasket, nose piece and head strap in goggles are made of silicone or plastic, which need to be kept away from high temperature.

If your goggles do become foggy, simply spray one or two squirts in your goggles before you hop in the pool. Some swimmers even use their tongue to clean the lenses, which can keep the lenses clearer for longer.

8. Of course storing your goggles in their protective case prevents scratches, exposure to the sun or to damaging factors.
