    Let's start a thread discussing what you do to protect your Gear VR from scratches, dust and other mishaps.

    I have basically a lunch cooler bag that's the perfect size for the headset, a large microfiber cloth, my SteelSeries Free controller and the lens cleaning pen I have. Most of the time, I just do a quick swipe with the microfiber before use (as well as cleaning my phone's screen); a couple times a month, I'll use the lens cleaning pen and do a more thorough clean of the lenses. I also use a can of compressed air to blow out any stray hairs or dust from around the lenses.

    What's your setup?

    When I borrow a Gear VR from family, I normally use my headphones bag to keep it clean and way from dust. It's got 2 strings that come out of it for either carry purposes or your can use them to close the bag. Like draw strings. 😃 otherwise, I have a dedicated, oh yes, dedicated pillow where I put it down just so I can have a break. Can't have it on a hard table, it could get scratched haha

    I feel positively primeval next you guys. I just clean the lenses and screen with it. No bags just keep out of the kids reach

    My use is predominantly watching Netflix in bed, so I normally just store mine in its box.

    It hasn't gotten too dirty, but for the lens, I use a generic lens cleaner packet. For the plastic outer frame, I use a damp cloth.

    To be honest, i think i provide over any above what is required when it comes to protection and cleanliness of the (borrowed) Gear VR. I'm sure if you do what @JDGAFFLIN does and just keep it in the box, things should be absolutely fine. A general wipe down every now and then should be enough. I think i take good care of it because it's not mine and if i rerun it all scratched with crayon drawing on it, the owner won't be very happy
    If it was mine i probably would be a little more relaxed.

    I have a case as well. Not only does the case protect the gear from dust, but also from sticky fingers of students.

    I keep alcohol wipes on hand for my Daydream View, I's imagine they would work here too!

    I use the same cloth as my glasses, but I keep a bottle of anti-fog solution for ski goggles for my Gear VR.

    Probably best to use lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth. That's what cleans my regular glasses best. Also some lens and lens coatings can be damaged by alcohol, so I'd be careful using that all the time.

    Do you wear glasses while playing Kris or do you take them off? Also what type if anti-fog do you use as I tried a friends and it made it like someone sneezed on it

    I don't know about @krisguy, but I don't use an anti-fog or wipes. I'm too worried about damaging the coating, lol

    I'd also stay away from the anti-fog stuff.

    I rest it face down on the plastic cover on a shelf out of reach of the kids. microfiber cloth and occasionally compressed air seem to do the trick on the lenses.
