Lightbulb OOPPPPSSSSS!!!!

i let my friend use my Brass Eagle type mask (its a cheap back up) and i gogged him. i used this thick fill paint and when i gogged him, he didnt gor right away w/warm water and i was somewhere inside (we played in my backyard) and guess he used these sprays for cleaning, NOW the lens is staind pink (the fill of the paint was pink) and i cant get it off. i've rensed and srubed w/water and it doesnt come. Can anyone help me on how to take it off, or an i going to have to replace the lens. I got the mask at K-mart and its Brass Eagle so i dont know if i can even replace the lens.

thanks

id hate to burst your bubble, but most eye glasses today are made of plastic, the plastic is treated to be extra strong and super scratch resistent though so eye glass cleaner might work, but dont try it, just go with warm water..i also noticed with my old mask i always used windex to clean the lense and the lense would get scratched easier...oh yeah DONT USE PAPER TOWELS theyre pretty rough and can scratch your lense, use a soft cloth or if your at home toilet paper (not the rough kind)

Here's why...

This is why Shampoo works as an anti-fog

When I used to live in North Dakota, hockey was a huge thing to do. People had those clear plastic lenses (i-tech) And they'd fog up when they'd play. So, if they didnt have time before the game to put anti-fog solution on, this is what they did.

They'd hit the bathroom and mix soap with water then apply a light light layer on the lens. This does the SAME thing as shampoo. Fog bulids on surfaces, but what the soap/shampoo does is leave a light film over the plastic so fog couldnt form on it. It's kinda like an invisible microscopic barrier that doesnt let fog collect.

That's WHY shampoo works, but I dont know if it's safe for paintball.

no it is not fine those solutions are made for your glasses not jt lenses,there are millions of different types of plastic

replace your lens immedeitly or loose a eye,it's that simple


i know alot of people who have used dish soap and shampoo
over the years with no problems


BUT it could void your warrenty or right to sue if the lens fails and you loose a eye due to a odd chemical in the particular soap you use


water is best just run clean cool water over it then air dry

you can get soft lens cloths from jt or eye glass stores,3m makes a nice one that,will take care of streaks and are a no-chemical safe way of cleaning

I've got to say, this thread put the fear of God in me. I've always cleaned with water, but I had considered using Windex in the past. I won't be doing *that* now. What about sulfur water? My local feild has a big tank of it to clean goggles with. Does it cause any of the problems listed in this thread?

aglar, call your goggle company and ask! windex is ok according to the various goggle companies I've called. I'm making it a point to check with the goggle companies about the use of various cleaning agents on goggles as I see them being posted. when in doubt, ask...

You don't realy need to replace your lense If you put something on your mask once. but if you kept doing it every time you got gogged it would be bad and you would have to replace them.

by the way, using other cleaners will NOT void your warranty. using the goggles for anything other than what they were intended for will. Again, when in doubt CALL YOUR GOGGLE COMPANY and ask.

I know I was just saying if you used something "harmful" on your lense. I was not talking about the windex.

you should read it more carefully.

well if you are using something caustic or harmful to your lenses, they should be replaced immediately before using. Just check with your goggle company to inqure on whether or not it's caustic to the lenses.
