This "How-To" provides the basic steps on how to safely clean your AVATOUR hardware.
- 2 Microfiber Cloths

- Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes (Bleach-free)
- PDI Super Sani-Cloth® Germicidal Disposable Wipe
- UV sterilizer (optional)
- Prepare several microfiber cloths to use for cleaning
- Make sure they are dust free
- Dampen microfiber cloth
- Make sure the cloth is not dripping. Liquid dripping into the headset or controllers could cause damage
- Use the dry microfiber cloth to wipe the lenses
- UV sterilizers
- Should be used with care
- Some may cause domestic or lens discoloration with prolonged exposure
- Do not spray disinfectants or other liquids directly on VR equipment
- Do not apply disinfectants or wipes to foam material, fabric (such as staps), or sensitive components (such as lenses or eye trackers).
- Do not dip or soal the hardware in liquid.
- Aside from the above recommendations, do not use other organic solvents for cleaning the following:
- Exterior of headsets
- Do not use acidic liquids.
- For VR headsets, do not keep them out in direct sunlight
- Clean the lenses (360 camera and VR lens)
- Use an air pump to blow away dust and particles from the lenses and trackers.
- Use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe the lenses and trackers
- Wipe in a circular motion from the center to the outer edges
- While cleaning the lenses, be careful not to scratch the lenses or disassemble other parts of the hardware
- Using one of the recommended disinfectants or wipes, clean the hard surfaces you touch the most, such as:
- VR headset band
- Adjustment dial on the back of the headset
- Headset controller handles
- Completely dry at room temperature
- Dry it using paper towels to remove residue from disinfectants
- This helps prevent possible skin irritation or allergies
