The most annoying and potentially dangerous thing a motorcyclist an experience when riding in wintry conditions is their visor misting, steaming or fogging up.

How to use washing up liquid to prevent anti visor fogging:
Step 1: Remove your visor from your motorcycle helmet
Step 2: Thoroughly clean your visor in warm soapy water, inside and out, then wipe it dry with a lint-free cloth
Step 3: Add a tiny smidge of washing up liquid to a dry lint-free cloth and gently apply it evenly to the entire surface area on the inside of the visor
Step 4: After applying leave it for a couple of minutes then very lightly buff it with another clean dry cloth until no smear marks appear
Step 5: Refit the visor to your motorcycle helmet
And voila a cost-effective anti fog visor is ready to go. You can breathe heavily on the visor to test it’s effectiveness, you might notice a temporary mark or pattern which will quickly disperse. It’s best to use this system in conjunction with an anti fog mask if you have one, or if not just regulate your breathing sensibly. We’ve personally tested this method and it usually works for a good few days and then you can just quickly follow the above process again to give it a fresh coat.
Enjoy a fog free winter of motorcycling!
