Cleaning and disinfecting VIVE XR Elite
Here are a few tips to help you keep VIVE XR Elite clean and hygienic.
- Dampen a cloth with a neutral, non-acidic cleaning solution and use it to wipe the hard surfaces of the headset and controllers clean, especially places you frequently touch with your hands.
- Using a UVC cleaner is an effective and recommended way to decontaminate VR headsets and controllers. Before using a UVC cleaner on your VR devices, make sure to properly cover the headset lenses. Discoloration due to UV exposure is not covered by warranty.
- Don’t spray or pour liquid directly on the headset or controllers.
- Don’t use any liquids or cleaning solutions on the lenses.
- Don’t expose the headset or controllers to direct sunlight.
- Don’t use a volatile solvent such as alcohol to clean the temple pads.
- Don't wash the face cushion or temple pads.
- Don’t machine wash the headset or controllers.
Cleaning the lenses
- Use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to wipe the headset lenses clean.
- To avoid smudging the headset lenses while cleaning them, wipe in a circular motion from the center of each lens to its outer edge.
- For optimal tracking and passthrough, clean the four tracking camera lenses and the passthrough camera lens with a microfiber cloth.
- Never use any kind of cleaning solution on the lenses.
