How To Clean Paintball Lens?

Cleaning a paintball lens is a vital part of keeping your mask clean and ready for action. It can be hard to keep the lenses clean, but if you follow these steps, you should be able to do it with ease.


Cleaning a Paintball Lens

Put the lens in a bowl, remove paint from the lens with your fingers and clean it with soap or detergent. Then wash off dirt and excess water from your lens. Rinse off the lens thoroughly so that you do not cause any damage to its protective coating. Use clean, hot water for rinsing. Gently rub around in circular motions using as little pressure as possible on this delicate piece of equipment; too much force can destroy not only its appearance but also its value!

Things You Need To Clean Paintball Lens

Here are the things you’ll need to clean your paintball lens:

  • Warm water
  • Soft cloth
  • Sponge or soft brush

Step 1 – Put your mask on top of a flat surface upside down

Put your mask on top of a flat surface upside down. This will ensure that the lens is clean and dry before you reattach it to the frame.

Fill your bowl with warm water, then remove the lens from its housing by pulling it out in one quick motion. Wipe down any remaining dirt or gunk with your finger, then rinse thoroughly under running water until no more soap comes out when you squeeze it together—this can take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute depending on how dirty your lens is (or how long it takes you to get up off your butt). After rinsing off all excess residue, place back into its housing again until ready for use again!

Step 2 – Now remove the lens from the mask

Now that you’ve cleaned the paintball lens and put it back together, it’s time to remove the lens from your mask. This can be a little tricky because there are several small clips that hold the lens in place, but if you pay attention to what I’m about to say then it’ll be easy:

  • First, take off any masks or goggles over your eyes (or just avoid letting them touch). This will prevent any stray hairs from getting into places where they shouldn’t be going!
  • Next, grab one side of one piece of tape on top of another so that both pieces overlap slightly (like so). Apply pressure with both hands until they stick together tightly without any gaps between them being able to slip through; this may require some heavy lifting!

Step 3 – Take the lens and put it inside the bowl which you filled with warm water

This is the part where you’re going to put your lens into the bowl of warm water.

Now, before we get into this step, let’s talk about why it is important to use a bowl that is big enough for the lens and not too small or too big. If you don’t have one of those bowls (which are usually made from glass), then just make sure you use a container that has plenty of room for all your parts!

Step 4 – Remove paint from the lens by rubbing it with your finger. Soak the lens in warm water if it is needed

The next step is to rub the lens with your finger. This is important because it will remove any loose paint that still remains on the surface of your lens. The best way to do this is by using a soft-bristled brush, or even better still, simply use your fingertips! If you don’t want to go through all that trouble and just want to get rid of all those nasty little particles yourself (and save some money), then go ahead and use warm water instead—it works just as well at getting rid of most unwanted gunk as it does for removing makeup from clothes.

Step 5 – After you removed all paint from your lens, Now it’s time to wash

It’s time to wash off any residue left by rubbing the surface with a soft cloth or sponge. Make sure to use clean, hot water and gently rub around in circular motions until dirt has been removed. Use as little pressure as possible; too much can damage the protective coating of your lens. Be careful not to get any soap on your mask or hands when applying this step because residue might be left behind after rinsing off all dirt particles that has accumulated through use over time! You’re now ready for some action again!

  • Use clean, hot water.
  • Gently rub around in circular motions.
  • Don’t use soap! Don’t get any soap on your mask or hands either! Be careful not to use too much pressure—you don’t want to damage the protective coating of your lens by rubbing too hard with a brush or sponge (which could cause scratches). You should also avoid using too little pressure; this can leave residue behind which will be difficult (and even dangerous) for you to remove later on down the line when cleaning becomes necessary again!

How Not To Clean Paintball Lens

You’ve spent thousands on your paintball lens and now it’s time to make sure it stays clean. This is a tough job, so keep this guide handy! Here we have discussed the factors that you must consider while cleaning paintball lens:

Rinse and Dry it

  • Rinse the lens with water.
  • Dry your lens with a clean cloth or paper towel, but don’t use one that’s got a lot of lint on it.

Don’t Use a Cloth on Lens

When cleaning your lens, don’t use a cloth. This can scratch the surface of the lens and cause it to fog up. Instead, use a microfiber cloth to wipe off any dirt or dust particles on your lens. If you want to deep clean your lens, then you should use a special solution that is specially formulated for this purpose (or make sure that whatever solution you’re using doesn’t contain alcohol).

Don’t Keep Goggles on When Not In Use

  • Don’t keep goggles on when not in use. This is one of the most common mistakes made by people who want to clean their paintball lenses, and it can cause serious damage to your goggles if you’re not careful. If you have a pair of goggles that’s been sitting around for a while, don’t keep them in the same place where they’ve been laying around all winter long! Get them out of storage and put them somewhere safe where they won’t be damaged by sunlight or moisture (like an oven).
  • Avoid scratching the lenses by keeping your fingers away from them while cleaning them with rubbing alcohol or other solvents (like acetone). You should also avoid using steel wool on these lenses; instead try using cotton swabs dipped in rubbing alcohol first before trying anything else!

Treat Your Lens Like an Expensive Pair of Glasses, But Try to Keep it Cleaner Than That

  • Treat your lens like an expensive pair of glasses, but try to keep it cleaner than that.
  • Keep it dry, especially if you’re going to be playing in the rain or snow or sand.
  • Don’t touch your lenses unless they’re dirty and need cleaning—even then, use care not to scratch them!
