mask care?

between games i clean my lens with the attached cloth in my empire pants, but it usually gets wet by the end on the day and becomes useless. how do u guys clean your lens after a game? just a simple micro fiber cloth or a cleaning solution?

I use the FogDoc spray in between games with the FogDoc cloth. Makes my lenses like brand new for the next game. If I need to wipe my lenses in game, or quickly, then I use the cloth attached to my Empire pants. It doesn't do as good of a job as the FogDoc, but it's good in a pinch.

I have always found that the best mask cleaning technique post game day is to detach your mask from your goggles and run some hot water on it or wipe it down with hot water on a paper towel. As for maintaining the velcro and foam of the mask, a quick rinse and hang to dry always does the trick. This should work for any goggle system.

Don't use paper towels, they are abrasive and will scratch your lense. Its best to use a microfiber cloth.

my renter masks, i literally just use the garden hose, hose them off, clean all the grease off with a quick spray of windex and compressed air. bam. Personal mask, i use a microfiber and rubbing alcohol, nothing works better.

Don't use windex either! The chemicals in there will eat away at the plastic. A simple mircofiber will work, I don't even use water on my mask unless I'm at home cleaning it

Yeah, i heard Mike ramble about that too. I have a mask from 2002 with the original lense and i use windex on it every time i clean it. Mask and lense is still fine all-around. Eating away at plastic is just outrageous..

Very true to an extent especially in a sport with as many choices as pball. Kindda like me and the paper towels. I had meant to say use wet paper towels which aren't abrasive on lenses because they are, well, wet. My apologies on that post I hadn't been specific enough.

I generally lick off any paint and polish with a microfiber towel in a single direction. If running water is available, I might use that near the end of the day or so, but I usually don't need to.

Want me to be honest? I use Charmin Ultra Strong toilet paper. It never streaks, always pulls all paint off, never scratches, is cheap, and you just throw it away.

Hmm...running hot water in a gentle stream and a high-thread count cloth gently...frankly, I'm not worried about microscopic scratches and stuff like that, just as long as I can see.

The trick about running water is that using it greatly increases the chances of seeping into your thermal gasket.

It does differ from goggle to goggle. On a single pane lens with a heavy anti-fog coating such as a V-force goggle you'll strip off the anti-fog if you use windex. Clean pure water only on those.

I wouldn't use a cleaning product short of maybe a touch of dishsoap on any lens. I used to use Plexus too, but I can't be sure it really did what it claimed.
