How do you clean your mask on the field?

after getting paint on my lens, it is really hard to clean it on the field between game. I normally just use water and a cloth but seems like is not good enough and oily stuff still on the lens makes a mess and unclear.

Warm water and elbow grease. You don't want to put any type of chemical cause it might eat away at your lens.

Uhm. Well does your mask allow you to remove the lens? With my E-vents' I just pop the lenses out and spray some water on them and whip it down, pop them back in and go out again. If you cannot remove your lenses then the way your doing it is the best I can really think of. It may just be your lenses (if they arnt high quality). I'd invest in a good mask. If you can't see then you can't shoot anyone. You can get e'vents now for like $63.

Spray bottle and the more expensive/softer paper towels. And yeah, having fast-change lenses like the Vents line are a big help.

Try warm water. It might help the paint slip off.

Wipe off the excess paint and finish it off with a microfiber cloth. It works wonders.

The key is LOTS of water. Get the paint running, then MICROFIBER CLOTH. Clean as new.
I sell a spray bottle and microfiber cloth banded together with directions at several fields here in Cali.

just find a clean spot on your sleeve, and/or rag, and rub your lense in little circles...
That method has never failed me in my years of playing... The clean sleeve/rag, and little circles are the key.

I use a shop rag to get the paint off then wipe the oil and shell w/ a microfibre cloth, spray with water/eyeglasses cleaner and use your mask bag to polish the lense.
