Introduction: Paintball Tips: Cleaning Your Grillz
The Vforce Grillz are one of the most used paintball masks, along with the JT Flexes, and Dye i4's. There come times in paintball, when you will be hit in the face. While it is terrible to be hit in the mask, it doesn't need to be a pain to clean. The Grillz have a quick-dry foam system, and a quick-change lens system. It is extremely easy to clean this mask, you could do it in between games. After, a few weeks of doing this, I can clean my mask and lens in under two minutes.

Step 1: Materials
What you will need:
A Dirty pair of Grillz
A Microfiber Cloth
Step 2: Cleaning the Mask
First I took off the 'Temple ComfortPads', which is the little pieces of foam that clips onto the mask by your ears. You just need to pull them out of the holes. Now, inside by your ears, unclip the strap and pull it out. On the other side there is a hard piece of plastic that holds the lens in, Push the piece, inside and this hard plastic piece will just pop out. Repeat on the other side. Just push the lens out from the inside, DON'T DROP YOUR LENSES. If you drop your lenses, you risk scratching and breaking your lenses. Spray your mask down, and wipe it dry with the rag. If paint is in the vents on the front, or by where your lenses go in, use a q-tip to wipe the paint away. If you do this at the field, you may want to skip using the q-tips. Put it to the side, to dry.
Step 3: Cleaning the Lens & Re-assembly
DISCLAIMER: DO NOT USE WINDEX OR ANY OTHER GLASS CLEANING AGENT, IT EATS YOUR ANTI-FOG TREATMENT AWAY FROM THE LENS. ONLY USE WATER, AND A LITTLE BIT OF SOAP, IF YOU NEED IT.
Lay a rag down, and place the lens on top of it. Spray all the paint off, and wipe it down with the microfiber cloth. Don't dry it with a normal rag, or else it will scratch your lenses. Make sure the mask and lens are both dry. Now, push the lens in by holding the microfiber cloth. This will ensure there are no smudges on your lens. Now, put your side clips back on and slip the strap back into the mask. Clip the strap to the side pieces, and then add your temple clips. You now have a clean mask, and are ready to play another round of paintball. Remember you can't shoot, what you can't see. Keep your mask clean, and you'll be happy all day.
