How Do I Clean Salty Residue On Scuba Diving Mask?

I've bought a new dive mask and used it for my first fun scuba dive trip. After I cleaned the mask at home, I realized there is still some residue on my mask.


I guess it must be the salty residue as I didn't rinse my mask with clear water immediately after I used it. Is it possible to clean the salty residue?

Hi,

First, congratulations on your first fun scuba diving experience. I really hope you enjoyed it.

Now to your question. Don't worry, you can still get that residue off of your scuba diving mask.

To clean your scuba dive mask at home, first soak it in clean warm water. This will help loosen any particles that are on your mask.

After it has soaked for awhile, give it a gentle shake underwater. I would also then run it under clear warm water and let that sweep away any particles. You would want to do these steps first to avoid scratching your mask.

Once you have followed the above procedure, it should be safe to use your fingers on your mask to clear away any particles. I would also use toothpaste to clean your mask as I recommend on this scuba diving mask cleaning page.

You should then have a nice clear mask to use the next time you go diving.

Let us know how it goes.
