NO FOG FACE MASK | Simple Hack That Really Works

No Fog Face Mask Hack youmakeitsimple.comWearing a face mask with glasses stinks! Fortunately, I’m not one of them. However, there are so many people out there that do have to wear a face mask all day and they wear glasses. The CONSTANT glass fog is a BIG issue!  My husband, who wears glasses, came up with a simple NO FOG HACK that really works.

We, my husband and I, created a short video demonstrating just how to take care of this issue. It seriously is so simple. The video link is located at the end of this post.

No fog face mask Materials and items needed

  • Tissue or Toilet Paper! (Yep, that’s it)!

No Fog Face Mask folding tissue


Take a tissue and place it on a table with the natural fold that it has coming out of the box be in place.

Fold the sides in about 1 inch (2.5 cm) on both sides.

No Fog Face Mask Folded Tissue Barrier youmakeitsimple.comThen fold it up from the bottom 1 inch (2 times).

Simply place it inside the brim area of your mask. Apply the mask with the folded tissue sandwiched between your nose and the mask.

This creates a barrier that traps the air and the moisture, keeping it from fogging up your glasses. It still allows air flow out the sides of your mask.



This can be done with a strand of toilet paper as well. (4 squares of toilet paper).

No Fog Face Mask TOILET PAPER VERSIONFold the toilet paper strand into thirds and then proceed folding from the bottom.

BAM! Now wasn’t that SIMPLE? This no fog face mask hack is the best and I hope it saves all you glass wearers a lot of grief.

Be sure to check out the entertaining video (my husband’s gift) below.


If you want a good quality mask, but don’t want to make your own, I recommend this mask.

Stay well, keep smiling behind that mask and have a wonderful week!

    There is no fogging of eyeglasses when the glasses rest on the top of the mask, instead of under it.
    Works for me, and there’s no messing around with a tissue or toilet paper.ReplyCancel

    It didnt work for me….tissue slipped down.. was very annoying when wearing. Sorry….I just hand seamed a twist tie to crimp on my every time……and my glasses dont fog up either….must be the closure I use…pinching it at top.ReplyCancel

    This would mean your mask was no longer washable, rigth?ReplyCancel

    • JanSeptember 6, 2020 - 8:24 am

      NO. You’ll just be setting the tissue inside temporarily.ReplyCancel
