How To Clean Your Paintball Mask

There are many different rumors floating around on how to correctly clean your mask. We’ve got two of the best ways to clean your mask without scratching the lenses or removing any protective (anti-scratch, UV, anti-fog, tinted) coating. We show demonstrations of these two popular techniques and suggest good products to use while warning about harmful products and techniques.

Technique #1: How To Clean Your Mask Without Scratching the Lens

So you were out playing some paintball and you got shot right on the lens.  This is makes for a very good reason WHY you should always clean your mask – because you can’t see out of it afterwards!  So what you want to do is take the excess paint off of the lens (as demonstrated in our YouTube clip).  One of the easiest ways to do this, especially if you are out without a microfiber cleaning cloth, just use your hand!  Wipe as much paint off as possible with your hand.  The idea is that your hand keeps you from scratching your lens and still allows you to continue playing some paintball.  Once you get home, use some cleaning solution – spray it onto the lens and use a microfiber cloth to clean the rest of the paint off of your mask.  For some great mask and lens cleaning products, be sure to check out our website for some of these items.
