All of us who wear glasses are suffering from the same problem.  As soon as we put on our face mask to venture out to the grocery store or pharmacy, our glasses fog up.  Do not despair, there is a simple solution...soap and water.

The medical journal, Annuals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, sites two doctors who developed a defogging strategy for the emergency room.  But it also works in the grocery store.

  1. Wash your hands with soap and water.
  2. Wet your glasses and lather soap on your glasses.
  3. Rinse your glasses with warm water.
  4. Gently dry your glasses with a clean, soft towel or lens cloth.

That's it.
