They drive me crazy. One expects one's specs to steam up when one opens the oven door or takes the lid off a boiling pot, but should eyeglasses steam up simply because you have been reading a while?
Not to mention going foggy just because you have put them on.
I have special cloths, anti-fogging sprays, and cannisters of special lens cleaner. I use them all the time, but they only work for a very short time.
Then, by accident, I found a much better alternative. I was leaning over the newspaper, trying to read it, and in a fit of impatience I took off my specs and gave them a good wipe with the corner of the current page.
Presto. I already knew that newspaper is great for finishing off windows after you have cleaned them. A piece of newspaper is just as good for eyeglasses.
It must be something to do with the ink.
