Keeping your Gear VR clean isn’t a difficult process.
Samsung’s Gear VR can take you places, let you play games, and even watch your favorite movies from within VR. After you’ve been playing with it a bit, you’re going to want to make sure that you keep your headset clean. This is doubly true if you plan on sharing your Gear VR with friends; after all, nobody wants to put on a dirty headset. Thankfully, cleaning your Gear VR is a breeze and shouldn’t take more than a few minutes at a time.

Cleaning the lenses
The lenses are an integral part of using VR, so ensuring that they are clean and free of debris is essential. It’s easier than you think — especially if you have furry pets in the house — to wind up with bits of dust settled in around the lenses. Not only can this cause issues when playing, but dust can also irritate your eyes and cause issues. The best method for cleaning out the lenses, and avoiding scratching them in the process, is to go ahead and use compressed air, followed by a microfiber cloth.
Holding a can of compressed air a few inches away from the lenses of your headset, spray it in short and controlled bursts. This ought to dislodge all but the most stubborn bits of dust. If there is still something stuck on or around the lenses, you can use a microfiber cloth to carefully wipe and dislodge it.
