HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR FULL FACE SNORKEL MASK

Before Snorkelling

Before you even set off on your first snorkelling trip, you’re going to need to wash your mask lens. During the manufacturing process, a film of silicone develops on the brand new lenses that make them fog up very easily and makes them resistant to anti-fog solution. So even though they may be fresh out of the package, you’ll need to get this film off of your goggles using either the Ninja Shark Anti-Fog Spray or some toothpaste.

Yes! The plain white toothpaste, not the kind with gel in it, is ideal for removing the silicone film. You’ll want to rub it onto the inside of the mask and outside of the lens using your finger, no need to involve scratch-causing brushes, and then rinse with warm water. If you can rub your thumb across the lens and it produces a good squeaking sound, you’ll know you’ve cleaned it sufficiently. Just be patient and don’t scratch your brand new mask out of urgency.

When travelling to and from a snorkel site, be sure to keep your full-face snorkel in something that will protect it from getting scratched or bent. The Ninja Shark Waterproof Dry Bag is the perfect way to store and protect your mask.

Snorkelling Time!

When you’re at your beautiful snorkel location, there are a few things to keep in mind during your trip. You’ll want to be sure you’ve used the Anti-fog Spray on the inside of your full-face mask to make sure you’ll actually be able to see the beautiful fish and coral you showed up for. Just spray it on, rub around with your finger just enough to cover all the area and rinse off, NOT using your fingers or you’ll undo all the work you just did. You’ll want to apply this every time you get back in the water.

After Snorkeling Time

After your wonderfully amazing and memorable underwater adventure, you’ll want to make sure you take good care of your mask so that it’ll last a long time.

Once you get back to your house or accommodation, wash your full-face snorkel mask with warm (not hot) water. If it seems particularly dirty, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently remove any sand or debris that may be stuck in the cracks and crevices. You can also use a mild detergent like dish soap to clean off whatever else may have gotten on the silicone or lens like sunscreen.

Important: Don’t use something like rubbing alcohol or petroleum to clean your full-face snorkel mask. It’ll do more harm than good.

Make sure you dry it off with a soft cloth, not scrubbing hard enough to scratch your lens. Let it dry completely and then store it in the dry bag. Store it in a cool, dry place out of the sun.

Add Protection, Enjoy Peace of Mind.

Take good care of your gear so that it’ll last a long time and you can hand it down to your children in your will. Well, maybe not but good care will give the mask a long life.
