I know to just use water, but what kind of cloth should I use to wipe off the lens? And where can I get it? thanks

the field i used to go to just had sudsy water and a paper towel

now if you talking about the mask itself, a toothbrush always works nicely :)

For the lenses, I use a terry cloth. It works great and you can get them anywhere for cheap.

Yeah, I have a microfiber cloth. Works much better than paper towels at preventing the paint from just smearing.

Microfiber FTW. Use warm water, it helps get the paint off, but don't use it on cloth-type things, as it will just seal them in.

I rinse the paint off my lense with my hand and water and then use a soft cloth to dry it.

Plexus and microfiber - what I use. If I don't have microfiber I just use a clean part of my jersey.

When I play ball I bring a wash rag rinsed in water and put it in a zip loc baggie. I also bring old 3 towels to wipe up any paint mess. For gogs I towel most of the paint off, use the wash rag to get the rest then the towel again(in a spot w/o paint lol) to dry it. That's one of my pet peaves when playing paintball, my gogs must be perfectly clean. I carry a bandanna in my pocket on the field in case I get any excessive spray as well -

Microfiber cloths are the best to use. You can get them from Hobbyhorse and they are good quality.

water, soap and windex should do the trick

NEVER NEVER EVER USE WINDEX ON YOUR GOGGLES!!!!

Windex breaks down the plastic in the lense and makes them unsafe. If you used Windex on the goggles you have STOP USING THEM. Go get new lenses and relpace the ones you have.

You only get one set of eyes, don't risk losing them!

Just a towel and water if I have some. I try to keep a spray bottle in my bag with water in it.

Why would you use Windex, or any solution for that matter. It says so in the instructions not to use anything on your mask.

Cleaning solutions specified for goggles are fine, but why would you spend money on those when water's so much cheaper? :confused: Take your lense off of the frame and run it under water. If needed, use a slight amount of dish soap to encourage the stuck-on stuff. Dish soap is kind enough to the lense. ;)

Try doing that with a JT mask. They are pains to take the lens out of. Plexus works great and I don't need to remove the lens to get it perfect.

I did it with my Scott mask and my friend's JT Elites last week. Took me a total of 30min for both, including disassembly, washing, drying, and putting them back together. Not a big deal to me to spend a couple extra minutes cleaning a lense.

Between ganmes I splash water on and use a microfiber as best as I can, and when the micro-fiber isn't cleaning as well anymore I pull out another one or a soft shirt. I thought you meant after the day was over... haha. Guess I should read posts more thoroughly. :embarassed:
