Any anti-fog tricks for goggles?

Any anti-fog tricks for goggles? Someone mentioned Turtle Wax, another; Rain-X, what do you guys use to help from your goggles from fogging up, (other than buying anti-fog googles)?
Thanks!

I have used a spray in the sporting goods aisle for paint ball in the past.

You can probably get anti-fog (dual pane) lenses for you google frames. What googles do you have? They really make a difference.

Otherwise, IMO, a chemical on the lens can only do so much. A breathbox for your helmet will probably make the most difference. It will get your breath away from the lens. Thats what is causing the fog. A huge temperature difference on each side of the same lens.

Its why dual panes work so well.

The good news is that those googles use scott's most common lense. You should be able to get dual pane lenses for those goggles for about $15-$20.

If all else fails anyway....

I use snowboard (dual lens) goggles for exactly that reason. I have seen friends use motorcycle anti-fog products with limited success. Blueline is correct, getting some kind of breath deflector for your helmet will help a lot.
