visor fogging

What products are available to use on visors to prevent fogging?

I know that rain-x makes one, but I was unsure if it was good to use.

Thanks

Saline solution for contacts works also. I also use jewelry cleaner.

i havent used any type of product with complete success.......either way, i end up letting the visor creep up just a bit so it doesn't fog.

I'm just passing this along, but read recently that a cut potatoe rubbed on the inside of the screen. Then buff off with a clean towel. (supposedly a northern ice riding thing???)

I haven't tried it yet, but might give it a shot and see what happens.

I wouldn't use toothpaste on the visor; unless you need to remove some scratches. It makes a pretty good fine polishing compound.
