How to Clean Your Steampunk Motorcycle Goggles

Steampunk motorcycle goggles are all the rage, but they can be difficult to clean. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with these tips and tricks for keeping them in good working order!

Is it time to clean your motorcycle goggles?

You should clean your goggles whenever they get dirty and/or sweaty. This can be a couple of times per week, depending on how often you ride, your climate, and the type of riding you do. The more dust or mud you encounter (if you’re riding in an area that requires an off-road motorcycle), the more often you’ll need to clean them. The same goes for dusty climates like those found in Arizona and Nevada.

If your goggles are just a little bit dirty or smudged up, wipe them down with a microfiber cloth as soon as possible after coming home from a ride. If they are heavily soiled or covered with grime from sweat or rainwater, use warm water and mild dishwashing liquid or shampoo to remove stubborn stains from lenses (be careful not to scratch them).

Safe Cleaning Solutions for Your Lenses

  • Use a mild soap and water solution.
  • Do not use ammonia or bleach.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners that contain steel wool, sandpaper, or ground spices. These will scratch the lenses and make them less clear over time.
  • Avoid using alcohol, as it can dry out the rubber components of your goggles and cause them to crack over time; they are often used in cleaner solutions but should be avoided if possible because they can also be harsh on plastics like acrylics (which are common in eyeglasses).
  • Dishwashing detergent is usually too strong for delicate surfaces such as plastic lenses on eyeglasses or goggles—the high amount of soap content may cause permanent damage if you don’t rinse well enough after cleaning! Conversely, window cleaner is also too strong for these types of lenses because it contains chemicals that dissolve dirt from glass surfaces at very high concentrations (and even then only temporarily). Using dish soap or window cleaner could possibly leave behind residue that could scratch any plastic parts inside your goggles’ frames when worn again later down the line.”

What are steampunk goggles anyway?

Steampunk history covers a great deal, essentially is a subgenre of science fiction that takes place in an alternate history, usually the Industrial Revolution. The genre’s characteristics include steam-powered machinery and the use of alternate history technology (like Victorian-era computers). The genre also has an aesthetic, which can be described as retrofuturistic or bricoleur (a mix of found objects).

Steampunk goggles are an example of steampunk fashion—they’re goggles with a design inspired by steampunk culture!

Replace Your Safety Strap

Replace your strap if it is worn, damaged, longer safe, or if you have a new steampunk motorcycle helmet so that it looks the part. The strap is one of the main part of your goggles, and it’s what keeps you safe. If your strap gets worn out or damaged, replace it right away. You can order a new one from your favorite motorcycle store or online retailer. Be sure to check with them before ordering, though—some companies charge a fee for replacement parts!

What supplies do I need to clean my goggles?

The first thing you’ll need to clean your goggles is a clean cloth. You can use pretty much any fabric or paper towel that’s soft and absorbent. Next, you’ll want to use some cleaning solution like the ones we’ve mentioned. I used a mixture of distilled water, white vinegar and dish soap, but there are plenty of other options available if you don’t want to buy it from the store.

Finally, safety glasses are essential for keeping your eyes safe when working with chemicals so consider having a pair of those as well.After all, it only takes a second to get something in your eyes and if you don’t have safety glasses on then that’s what will happen. So make sure you have them before starting any cleaning job.


If you want to keep your goggles in good condition, it’s important to clean them regularly. If you don’t have time or energy for this task, then consider investing in a pair of steampunk goggles that come with a cleaning solution kit.
