Microfiber cloth does quite well.

I use some JT cleaning solution. It works pretty good.

I usually just use the ol' Windex and paper towel combo. But then again, my lenses aren't that expensive (I have heard that Windex can ruin a lens). I'd say get a lens cloth and a spare bandana (what I use for my E-vents).

Windex is said to weaken the lens. That makes it a safety issue. As long as you replace your lenses more than once a year, you will probably be ok, but really, use somthing else.

I think that is there is any manual you read for paintball equipment, it should be your mask. There are some things that can go wrong, and of that happens, you might be out a body part and a lot of cash. Just read it.

Yeah, this is delayed by a long shot, but I'm bored on the forums, and the Lounge has nothing interesting. I suppose this post is pointless.

But! I got a microfiber cloth, and now my lens looks alot better. Except at the top left corner, but my friend said that it can get stuck on permanently if it not cleaned properly *buys a new mask*

I carry two microfiber clothes. One a general cleaning cloth and one made specifically for cleaning glass. Got both at a car parts store. I use the general cloth for clearing the hit off and the glass cloth for polishing the lens. No streaks, no smears.
