Can I clean Oculus lenses with alcohol?
“Can I clean my Oculus lenses with alcohol?” is a question we get asked a lot. Some people ask us privately, and some post publicly on social media.
We recommend that you not clean your Oculus headset’s lenses with alcohol. Here’s the deal: It’s not the alcohol that can damage your lenses. Instead, it’s the type of cloth you use with it.
Alcohol dries quickly, which means it can be used to clean without leaving streaks or wetness behind. But certain kinds of materials will also scratch your lenses when combined with alcohol.
We recommend using a soft cotton cloth to clean your headset and controller touch surfaces while avoiding cleaning solutions or sprays. For more information, see our support center article on cleaning your Rift or Touch Lenses and Controllers.
How to safely clean Oculus lenses
Many people have a hard time cleaning the lenses on their Oculus Rift. It’s scary because they’re expensive! They’re delicate! I’m going to tell you exactly how I clean mine.
I’ve been using my Rift recently and noticed that it was getting pretty dirty. So one night, after playing games for a few hours, I pulled out my toolkit and got to work.
* Put on some latex gloves. There are oils in your fingertips that can smudge the lenses when cleaning. The gloves will prevent this from happening.
* Gently blow off any dust from the lenses using pressurized air if you have it. Do not use any other type of compressed air (e.g., CO2) as it may be too powerful and cause damage to the lenses or your Rift itself.
* Take a microfiber cloth, moisten it with water (not saliva), and gently wipe the lenses down in circular motions until they are clean.
* Repeat Step 3 for both sides of each lens, making sure not to touch them with your fingers directly or let them come into contact with any other surface while cleaning them!
Wipe down the lens in circular motions; don’t press too hard because you could damage the lens or move its position relative to the headset’s sensors. You can wipe as many times as necessary; just keep folding over the dirty sections of your paper towel until it’s clean!

The Oculus Rift is still in its early stages, but already it’s becoming clear some users will never be able to enjoy the whole VR experience. Fortunately, you can use plenty of workarounds to improve your lens smear during gameplay. For example, some experts recommend using soap and water to wipe the lenses—but before you get started, make sure you put on a pair of latex gloves to protect your hands from scratches.
It’s also essential to refrain from leaving residue-deposit cleaners, such as Windex or other ammonia-based products. These cleaners have been known to damage certain plastic surfaces—including those used in virtual reality headsets. But if you remember these simple precautions when cleaning Oculus lens smudges, you should be fine.
Takeaway: Cleaning your Oculus lenses is easy and quick!
