    Usually your Kinect sensor lens needs not to be cleaned. However, if there are smudges or dirt on the lens, you'll have to clean the lens.

    To clean your lens, you need to have a soft lens cleaning brush, a microfiber cloth and a cleaning solution.

    Follow the steps bellow:

    • First, you should clear away dust or dirt particles using a soft lens cleaning brush.
    • Then you need to use a clean microfiber cloth that is designed to clean lenses, and gently wipe the lens in a circular motion.
    • If the smudges and fingerprints exist, you’ll have to use a cleaning solution designed for cleaning camera lenses or glasses.

    • You should apply the cleaning solution to the microfiber cloth. Never apply the solution directly to the lens.
    • Perform the cleaning activities carefully. Otherwise your lens might be damaged.
