I do rinse my goggles after each use, (pool and ocean) but over time this opaque cloudy stuff covered up my lens and I tried many remedies which did Not work, except One, which was 100% Sucessful!
The cloudy film is buildup from all the stuff in the water when you swim. What it is exactly, I don't know, but I'm sure somewhere on Google will have the exact answer.
The Cloudy Goggles
Methods that Didn't Work:
Method 1: Baby shampoo/gentle shampoo, scrub with sponge and fingers. (Didn't Work)
I think this method works well for maintenance, to prevent the cloudy build up, but if the cloudy build up is already there, this didn't do anything at all
No difference - notice how you cant see the bottle scrubber thru the lens
Method 2: Toothpaste: I had high hopes, but this again didn't do anything at all.
Method 3: Dishwashing Soap and baking soda: Nothing
Sucessful Method- VINEGAR!!
Method 4: Water and White vinegar.
I soaked my goggles in hot water, and added some vinegar to it, about 4 or 5 tablespoons and had it soak for about 2 hours. Online people mentioned 50/50 water and vinegar, but I used less and it worked AMAZINGLY!!
So happy I don't have to buy a new pair of goggles.
Look how clean they are!
Notice how you can see the scrubber now as opposed to the picture in Method 1!
The magic formula..
