How do you defog your scuba mask? Spit, baby shampoo, commercial defogger?

What method do you most often use to defog your scuba mask? Post a comment about when you perform the defog ritual (ie: 30 mins before a dive, right before you descend, etc.).

[Choose #4] Kelp works great, just rub a piece on the inside of your mask lense before hopping in.

[Choose #1] if it fogs underwater, kelp is a good substitute while you are down there. pop your mask off and rub some kelp in it.

[Choose #3] I use spit if the water is really warm but for cold water, I like to use a commercial defog. I usually use 500 PSI. it works great in the springs.

[Choose #3] Sea Gold, about 5 mins before a dive with a quick rinse right after application. Usually lasts the entire dive, but if mask fogs up while underwater, I just let some water in, swash it around, then clear the mask.
