Swimming goggles are essential for swimmers—they protect your eyes from chlorine and if you keep them free of debris you can see clearly in the pool.

If you don’t take good care of your swim goggles, they can get scratched up, fog up, and become uncomfortable to wear.

So how do you keep your goggles looking clean and new? Let’s dive in (pun intended) and find out!

Daily Maintenance

If you want your swimming goggles to last longer and stay clear, give them some daily TLC.

After each swim session, rinse your goggles with cold water to remove any chlorine or dirt that has built up on the lenses. 

Make sure not to use hot water—this could cause the lenses to warp and make them less effective. Also be sure to dry off the straps with a soft cloth before storing your goggles away in their case.

Deep Cleaning

Every few weeks, it’s a good idea to do a deep clean of your swimming goggles using mild soap or baby shampoo. Start by wetting your fingers with lukewarm water, then apply a small amount of soap or shampoo directly onto the lenses. Gently rub the soap into both sides until evenly distributed and let sit for a few minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water and drying thoroughly with a soft cloth. This will help keep your lenses clear and free from scratches!

Taking care of your swimming goggles is an important part of being a successful swimmer. With proper maintenance and cleaning, you can ensure that your goggles stay in top shape for as long as possible—allowing you to see clearly underwater and thus perform better in the pool! So follow these simple steps for daily maintenance as well as periodic deep cleaning sessions to keep those lenses shining like new!  

Happy swimming!
