I know, I know - you're expecting yet another story of some post-rock-show exploit in a hotel room involving half a dozen groupies and a sample pack of Schick Quattro Titanium Razors. While I'm currently at liberty to neither deny nor confirm such rumors, I will say that I've recently tried la crème à raser for an entirely different purpose: face shield anti-fog.
On our last pilgrimage to the Church of Dirt, Motobum and I were discussing the various re-purposed products we'd heard of being used as anti-fog treatments for face shields and goggles and shaving cream came up. In the past I've tried soap, spit, waxes and sprays. They all work to some degree, but none have proved to be 100% fog-free. Sadly, I can't declare shaving cream to be 100% fog free either, but in my limited trials so far I'm thinking it may very well be the best of the bunch. Its viscosity seems to make it easier to spread around and wipe back off while still leaving a thin coat, and it just seems to be working a bit better than all the rest. It also leaves a fresh, clean scent in your helmet- not unlike that of room 324 in the Edgewater Inn.
