How to clean the HTC Vive Focus 3?

In this article, you will learn about the best ways to clean or ensure hygiene using the HTC Vive Focus 3 VR headset. There are 3 different methods recommended by VR Expert to clean or ensure a more hygienic experience with the HTC Vive Focus 3.

Method 1. Hygiene Masks

What is needed:

  • HTC Vive Focus 3
  • Hygiene Masks

Hygiene masks are disposable cotton masks that can be worn on the face before putting on the HTC Vive Focus 3. This creates a protective layer between the headset and the face. The masks are easy to use and are universally applicable with all types of VR headsets. The disadvantage is that an extra step is needed before putting on a VR headset.

Advantages

  • Cheap
  • Useful for large groups of people
  • Extra level of hygiene

Disadvantages

  • Does not stop sweat
  • Does not kill bacteria only adds an extra layer between the headset and the user

Method 2. Disinfectant Wipes

What is needed:

  • HTC Vive Focus 3
  • Disinfectant Wipes

Important! Alcohol wipes can not be used on the lenses of the HTC Vive Focus 3. The second method to clean the HTC Vive Focus 3 is through the use of disinfectant wipes. Disinfectant wipes are disposable wipes that are used to wipe down the majority of the VR headset. These have shown to be a rather effective solution especially with the HTC Vive Focus 3 PU leather face pad, which allows the face pad to be wiped down more easily and effectively than fabric face covers. Take care when cleaning the headset that you do not use abrasive wipes on the lenses of the headset, rather use a standard glasses cleaner to avoid irreparable damage.  The benefits of the disinfectant wipes are that they provide a good solution for the majority of the HTC Vive Focus 3 especially thanks to its PU leather face pad. They are also easy to use and can allow the headset to be cleaned quickly between uses. The disadvantages of disinfectant wipes is that they do not remove all the dirt and bacteria found on the headset. This is highly dependent on how thoroughly it is cleaned and the quality of the wipes. Another disadvantage is the possibility of damaging the headset lenses if a strong alcohol wipe is used on it.

Advantages

  • Easy to use
  • Quick solution

Disadvantages

  • Can damage headset
  • Not 100% effective
  • Effectiveness dependant on type of wipe

Method 3. UVC Light with the Uvisan UV-C Disinfection Cabinets

What is needed:

  • HTC Vive Focus 3
  • Uvisan VR12 / VR20 / VR30

The Uvisan is the most effective disinfectant method for the HTC Vive Focus 3. Uvisan is a disinfection cabinet that helps you to quickly and safely disinfect your equipment by using UVC light. Uvisan cabinets have been proven to kill 99.9% of all pathogens including viruses and bacterias within a short period of time. The Uvisan has a number of other advantages, the cabinets are able to store and clean a number of HTC Vive Focus 3’s at the same time, useful for events and training sessions with multiple devices. The Uvisan’s also come with a locking system meaning the HTC Vive Focus 3’s can be stored in the cabinets overnight without issue. The cabinets include multiple charging ports meaning the HTC’s can be charged while being cleaned or stored. The Uvisan also has some small disadvantages, the cabinets require a power source to be used, which can be difficult when it would be used in different locations. The cabinets also have a higher upfront purchase price. 

Advantages

  • Kills 99.9% of bacteria
  • 5 minute cleaning cycle
  • Storage system
  • Adjustable timer
  • Space for multiple headsets and other devices

Disadvantages

  • High upfront cost
  • Require access to power to work
