Can you wipe the inside of goggle lenses?
 
i have some smudges on the inside of the used goggles i just bought and im wondering how i can clean it up?

the only thing you can ever touch the inside lens of a goggle with is something like catcrap but if you have to do it your lenses are already fucked.

you can try swishing some very diluted dishsoap and water in there but let it air dry, don't wipe it. never ever ever touch the inside lens of your goggles. ever.

Absolutely not! My friend rubbed mine and now I'll be buying a new lens tomorrow because its fucked.

It is ok to carefully blot the inside of the googles with the microfiber cloth, but do not wipe.

Also, after doing the 'swishing' around with water (if using soapy water, then rinse with plain water) you can use a hand-dryer or hair-dryer to dry the goggles (again , carefully!).

Go ahead - just use the goggle wipe on it when it's dry and be gentle. The only time you can't wipe/touch the inside is when it's wet. If it's dry it's fine - and needs to be done otherwise as you know, you'll have smudges and spots from where water dried.

Shit, the way some of you are talking I could be mistaken that I'm going to loose my fucking finger by putting it near the inside of my goggles.

so swishing water and soap inside will not do anything to the lens? and when i dry it with a hair dryer should i make the air cold or hot?

and no i didnt touch the inside of the lens yet and the guy i bought from said he didnt either.

Thank you to whoever said to swish around soapy water inside my goggles.
The soapy water got in between the inside and outside of my lens and i think
im now FUCKED!

if it got in there it can get out. just give it time to dry - at least overnight, if there is still moisture inside hit it with a hairdryer or put it sitting a foot or two above a heater and let it dry out.

use common sense and don't do anything to melt the lens. if its really cracked and that's how it got in they're just fucked go buy new ones. if there is a big opening in the seam between the two lenses they're fucked go buy new ones. whenever you do end up with new lenses never ever ever ever touch the inside of your lenses. wicking droplets up with the corner of a napkin is as close as you can get.
