Goggle lens smudges

Hey,a few days ago when I was up at the hill I was drinking some hot chocolate while in the lodge and spilt some on my goggles. I got the stuff on the outside off and continued riding the rest of the days. The next day when I was snowboarding there was a giant smudge on the goggles, and it was on the inside between the two things of plastic. So me being smart I tried to get the smudge out from between the lenses by washing it out. Turns out that doesn't work and the goggles iced up so much in the middle that I couldn't see at all.

So I guess my question from this uselessly long post is: how do you get a smudge out from between the lenses. I've tried with normal and soapy water and it doesn't work.

Thanks
glm

Holy shit I am possibly the most stupid human being in history. I tried one last time to clean it, this time by putting it in almost boiling water, because hot=clean, right? Wrong. Hot=exterior and interior lens separation.

hopefully not... I double sided taped them back together ( and cleaned them at the same time) so I'll see how it holds up

don't goggles have something (an inert gas?) in between the two lenses that prevents them from fogging up? i forgot what it was called, or if maybe i just dreamed it up, but i remember that's why you have the interior and exterior glued together.

i remember where i heard it from; i used to play paintball and for sure most goggles worth their money had that feature to prevent fogging (can't aim if you can't see). i'm not sure if it's true for snowboard goggles though. for your sake i hope i'm wrong

Thanks they weren't that expensive in the the first place, but I'm a penny pincher so I try to fix anything that breaks (but usually end up making it worse)
