When a goggle's seal is not flush to the face, the lenses can begin to fog. When goggle lenses become foggy, they are difficult, if not impossible, to see through. Creating a tight seal is imperative to keeping goggles fog-free. Thankfully, a product like Vaseline's petroleum jelly will create such a seal, and is easily removed. Do not use vaseline when wearing goggles to protect yourself from chemicals. The vaseline can trap the chemicals.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Lay the goggles on a flat surface. The portion that goes on your face should be facing upward.

  2. 2

    Dip your finger into the vaseline and rub between your finger and thumb to warm. Warming the vaseline will make it easier to spread.

  3. 3

    Rub the vaseline over the portion of the goggles that touches your face. This portion of the goggles is usually rubber.

  4. 4

    Place the goggles on your face, pressing to create a strong seal. The vaseline will help the goggles stick to your face, making it very difficult for them to become foggy.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not get the vaseline on the glass or plastic lenses. Vaseline on the lenses will make it difficult to see.
