BlurBusterz AntiFog wipes won’t damage glasses whether they are plastic or glass. The ingredients in the wipes won’t harm the lens, the frame or any special coatings on the lenses.
The special ingredients in our wipes can cause eye irritation, just like most soaps or shampoos. Of course, BlurBusterz cannot be used on contact lenses!
Anti-fog sprays and pastes are messy and wasteful because most of the material doesn’t go on the lens, it goes on the wiping cloth. They also require a separate, clean wiping cloth (which should not be your shirt) and can easily be spilled. Anti-fog sprays and pastes are not sanitary, as the bottles and tubes get passed from hand to hand when they are shared. Not to mention, if the bottles become contaminated, the grit can do some serious damage to your lenses.
Under normal use, the anti-fog solution will last for days or weeks — until you clean it off or the lenses get dirty. Under extreme conditions; however, the lenses may actually look wet with condensed water. After they have dried, you can reapply the BlurBusterz treatment from the same wipe.
- Let the wipe dry, this concentrates the active ingredient.
- Hold your glasses by the corner and use the wipe to apply the treatment to both surfaces of the lens, first on one side than the other.
- Examine the lenses to ensure the treatment is on evenly. If there is smudging or haze, gently buff the lens surface with the wipe until clear.
- Test the BlurBusterz application by breathing on the lens in front of your mouth to ensure complete uniform coverage of the BlurBusterz treatment. There should be no condensation or fog on the lens. If a few places have been missed simply buff gently with the wipe until the coverage is complete.
To remove the anti-fog treatment, simply wipe the lens with a damp cloth or wash in water with gentle rubbing.
Temperature won’t affect BlurBusterz AntiFog wipes. BlurBusterz works even when the temperature is below freezing.
BlurBusterz AntiFog wipe is formulated with U.S. denatured ethyl alcohol from U.S. grain. The only odor from BlurBusterz is American-distilled spirits!
To the best of our knowledge, the wipes will never expire. Even if the wipe has been sitting on a dashboard in the hot sun and comes out of the package appearing to be dry, it still contains the special active ingredient. Use the wipe just as you would a fresh one, and be sure to save it in the pouch for reapplication later.
No, the anti-fog treatment can be removed by washing in water.
A fresh wipe out of the package contains a few drops of alcohol and it is flammable, and it will evaporate in a few seconds. The active ingredients in the wipes are no more flammable than an ordinary piece of paper.
Some prescription eyewear comes with a protective film or coating that prevents the surfactant solution on the wipe from spreading out evenly on the surface — causing the wipes to leave a white residue. The same thing happens on iPhone screens which have been treated to prevent fingerprints.
Since this product was designed for safety glasses — and most safety eyewear does not have that same protective film — the wipes should not leave any visible streaks on most lenses. We do try to say ‘most glasses’ instead of ‘all glasses’ in our marketing due to the fact that we cannot control what is on a lens before the wipe is used.
