But don’t worry, I’ve got you! If you don’t know how to clean those goggles, just tag along till the end. 

Steps On Cleaning Snowmobile Goggles

So first of all get a cloth, a mug full of water, and a lens cleaning solution. Now that you’ve gathered these, we shall go to the cleaning part.

Step 1

Before cleaning, gently shake off any excess snow or dirt from the goggles to prevent scratching the lenses during the cleaning process. If you don’t remove the extra dirt it’s going to get situated in that corner for the rest of its life and form a large pile of debris at the end.

Step 2

Choose a soft, microfiber cloth or a lens-specific cleaning cloth. Microfiber cloths are recommended for cleaning lenses because they are a lightweight material that absorbs the liquid and helps you to wipe off dust and other stuff perfectly. Avoid using paper towels, tissues, or clothing that would end up scratching the lenses.

Step 3

Lightly dampen the cloth with clean water or use a lens cleaning solution specifically designed for goggles or eyewear. Avoid using harsh chemicals or alcohol-based cleaners, as they can damage lens coatings. Remember, to squish off extra water from the cloth if it feels heavy. We can’t apply any more water than is already needed to clean the goggles. And if you have heated goggles, then it is suggested that you use lens cleaning solutions instead of water, so as not to damage the equipment by any chance.

Step 4

Gently wipe the lenses with the damp cloth in a circular motion, starting from the center and moving outward. Be careful not to apply excessive pressure to avoid scratching the lenses. Also, if you exert too much pressure, the lens might break so keep that in mind too.

Step 5

There are some dirt stains that do not want to leave your goggles even if you’re spending your life cleaning. At times like these, breathe on the goggles to create condensation, and then gently wipe them with a damp cloth. If there is debris on the lenses, because you did not do the first step properly then please take it out somehow. 

Step 6

Drying the goggles is very important. After cleaning, use a dry part of the cloth to remove any remaining moisture from the lenses. Ensure the goggles are completely dry before storing them to prevent fogging. 

Step 7

Believe me, even if it doesn’t look like it, our hands are always dirty. So try not to touch the inside of the lenses with your fingers, as natural oils from the skin can leave smudges and make fogging worse. 

Step 8

Remember the time when you bought those goggles? You got a goggle pouch or a goggle case to put those things. Exactly, so when not in use, store the goggles in that protective case or pouch to prevent scratches and keep them away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

Step 9

When not wearing the goggles, place them on a clean, soft surface. Avoid laying them on rough or abrasive surfaces that could damage the lenses. Cleanliness arises from surroundings first, so make sure that the surrounding is clean too!

And that is it! Those goggles might be shining like new, aren’t they?
