Default Goggles for use with glasses (that won't fog!)

I wear glasses and I bought some cheap chemical protectant goggles - the ones that wrap around to protect your eyes - because I needed something to go over my glasses when spraying. I'm working on the inside of an empty house and I'm spraying everything. I already did the kitchen and two bedrooms but I'm doing a bunch of ceiling repairs/floating.

The goggles I was using kept fogging. Any recommendations on some goggles I can get that are fog resistant and will work with glasses?

Before you invest in more expensive antifog glasses.. put a dap of dish soap on your finger and coat the inside of the glasses. If you aren't working outside or in a cold house, this usually works.

I tried the dish shop method and that didn't work very well. Can anyone recommend some good goggles that are meant for painting specifically?

I heard if you rub a bar of soap on a mirror and buff it off it will not fog from the shower steam.

Spit. Coated the inside of scuba masks with it all the time.

You can always try a face shield.

Anything that seals around your face is going to fog. Even the vented ones eventually do. I saw a guy use a rolled up paper towel on his brow to push the glasses back a few cms. He probably compromised the protection a bit but it created little gaps along the sides of is eyebrows that let the goggles vent.

When I used to dive I always just used the spit and rinse method. These days they make a spray solution for use inside diving masks that you can get at scuba shops. Tried it in Hawaii and it worked fine but not sure how it would work on a spray goggles.

Anyone ever use the Advanz goggles - the disposable ones with the plastic film that you advance as the face of them becomes covered in spray? I know they may seem sort of gimmicky but I have been using them for over thirty years and still like the ability to quickly rotate a new clean plastic covering in place when spraying - especially when doing ceilings where it seems to comes right back at you. They fit fairly well over my glasses as well.
