mask care

How do you guys normally clean your masks? What can you use on the thermal lenses? If memory serves me right you cannot use windex on it, so what do you use? Is anything done differantly with a regular lense vs thermal lense? I got some e-vents (the older invert ones, black and gray) and it feels weird but its super comfy on the face, I guess I'm just not used to the whole rubbery mask thing, I'm more used to the plastic ones. I noticed on the outside when looking at the thermal lense, it has a weird look to it, like gas in water, is this normal? Its not noticable when wearing it, I'm just curious what it is. I'm looking forward to playing with it, I might just need to join in on some indoor fun this winter

Ah, those would be the invert avatars I owned a pair myself.
I own dye i4's and honestly all I do after a day of play is remove the
lens, then run both the lens and entire mask under warm water briefly..

Same for my Proflexes. I will remove the lens, run it all under warm water, scrub with a toothbrush to remove shell and maybe with dish soap to get paint off the strap. Then cloth dry the lens and let the mask air dry overnight.

So no special chemicals to clean the lense?

I would venture a guess that it is the same sort of poly-carbonate stuff used in safety glasses, so what ever is safe for those would probably be safe to your googles.

I personally pop out the lens and just run it under warm water, making sure I don't get near the foam between the layers, gravity pretty much takes care of the other side. As for the mask itself I do the same thing but only cuz I don't have a place to dunk it, although i use a little detergent with it.

If you are going to do this, maybe we should do a group order?

I use a lcd screen cleaner on my lenses, it's cheap, and it's not harmful to coatings, and leaves em nice and streak free.

I hold my mask under the kitchen sink at luke warm until it is clean, set it aside to dry. I do not remove the lens unless needed.
