Have you checked if it hasn't got a protective film on it? In that case rip it off. Wink

I remember Bell Helmet visors two decades ago had some sort of anti-fog coating which turned to a sticky goo after six months or so. Could it perhaps be such a case? think

Anyway when cleaning any visors just use dish soap, cold water and a soft sponge, preferably one made for crystalware.

One thing I forgot. Doh

If it's got an anti-fog treatment do not scrub it nor use any aggressive solvent as you may end up making things even worse.
At most try sticking it in the refrigerator for a few hours and see if it improves things.

Ah yes, the high-tech (and messier) version of the potatoes my grandfather rubbed on military aircraft glasses to keep them from fogging over during the war. Laugh

No need for that, honestly. You can use it if you want but I never do.

No, you perverts, I am talking about cleaning helmet visors, not showering. No Finger Wink

I usually just wet a kitchen tissue or two (those think Blitz ones are great) and pay it over the front and visor, let it soak a while then rub it clean although this is more to get rid of dead (I hope they're dead anyway) and dried flies and their innards.

I guess if I had some crappy film on the visor, I may resort to Mr Sheen Multisurface cleaner as thats fine on TV's, hifi's etc and think I do use that from time to time although haven't ridden much this year so can't actually recall Doh
