How do you keep swimming goggles free of fog?

There are two viable answers: 1. Commercial (scuba) dive shops sell a spray-on mister to apply to the inner surface of the goggles just before use. Can be applied wet or dry. 2. Expectorate (spit) on the inner surface of the goggle lens, rub the saliva about on the lens, and quickly dip the goggles in water immediately before use to control fogging. Method two is equally reliable, it just does not have quite as long of a viability in use - about 15-20 minutes, while the commercially available product will normally keep goggles clear for a dive lasting 30 minutes or more. If you select method #2 and fogging occurs, flood the mask with a small amount of water and swirl it around (by shaking your head - not violently) on the goggle surface. To clear the mask, press on the forehead area of the goggles with the heel of the hand and blow air out the nose until the water is expelled. Good diving to you!

most flights do have small print that says "no use of smokeless tobacco" but they can not stop you from doing it. its not a security violation to have it in your carryon or your pocket. The problem is, what are you going to spit in. You cant carry a water bottle on to the plane. So, wait until they pass out the drinks, and then spit in that.
