Default Goggle cleaning

Alright, this is the last thread I'm starting for a while, but I seriously need help with this.

I have Smith Prodigy goggles with the Sensor Mirror lense, and I can never seem to get the lense completely clean so that I don't see anything in it. Fogging is not a problem, it's that there's stuff on it that I can't get off.

Is there a right way to clean goggles without going out and buying products?

Thanks!

I carry the pouch/bag that came with them in my pocket and use that. Products for goggle cleaning are dumb.

I just use breath to fog the goggle if I need moisture, and wipe with the nice clothy thing - it should have no trouble removing debris, no problems ever. If u don't have the bag that every goggle comes with for the past 2000 years u can just get an anti-static glasses wipe.

Scratches don't clean.

Thanks! There a few things that aren't scratches that I haven't been able to remove; I'll try that again and see if it works.

This is going to sound strange, but try a coffee filter first.

Water on the filter and wipe down good, then use goggle holder fabric to wipe dry.

A little dab of water and tons of wiping worked perfectly! Thanks for all the tips - I'll definitely try the coffee filter sometime.

My 686 pants have a microfiber cloth attached inside one of the pockets so I use that to clean my goggles.
