Game/experiences for Seniors - What do you use to clean your lens?

Hello Occulous Universe,
We are a small nonprofit with Senior's Programs and we recently introduced a new program called, "Virtually Anything Can Happen", it's an intergenerational project with our seniors and our youth volunteers. 
We have had some challenges (not with the teenagers of course) finding an experience that works well for a person who is 80+, something that doesn't require wandering around or trying to navigate using the toggles (etc), we know our youth can use them but for most (not all) of our seniors it's a bit of a challenge. Many of our seniors have lived a very isolated life (we are located in northwestern British Columbia) and have really never experienced anything other than their "circle", we would like to change that, even if it is "just" through VR. The idea is that the senior and the youth have the same experience and then share their joint experiences - what was the same, what was different, really just engaging each other in conversations that many of our seniors never have. Many of our youth do not have grandparents either alive or living nearby so this really does help them to engage at that level as well.
What do you recommend as a great shared, game or experience?
Our second request is, what do you use to clean the lens and headgear of the equipment? We don't want to scratch the lens but we also know that with multiple users it's important that we adhere to a vigorous cleaning schedule/regime.

Thanks for your help everyone, as a side note, I am really struggling to navigate some of the experiences. I am also new to VR (we have 2 Rift) so the easier it is to navigate the better :-)

Thanks - Tracey - Volunteer Terrace

    I use a barely damp microfibre cloth to clean lenses (more dry than wet...) and the external surfaces of the Rift (S) - the faceplate/headstraps could be cleaned in the same way but perhaps with a gentle antibacterial spray lightly applied to the cloth.  Maybe someone else has a better solution to cleaning the headgear and will drop by.

    Hi Tracey!

    Welcome to the VR community! Your program sounds like it's a great use of VR.

    Regarding cleaning your Rift, for the lenses, you should be using a dry optical lens micro-fiber cloth to clean them. Don't use any kind of liquid or chemical cleansers. For the outside of the headset, you should be using a dry cloth. You can use non-abrasive anti-bacterial wipes to clean the straps and the facial interface foam. Don't use any alcohol or an abrasive cleaning solution. More info on cleaning the Rift is available here.

    Thanks!

    On the point of keeping the lenses clean, head over to amazon and grab a pack of Healsheild watch face protector gurards, i use the 43mm ones on my CV1 and Oculus GO, and they are great, once on you will not have to worry about scratching your lenses from cleaning or from wearing glasses.........a must have. ;)

    I use a lens brush for dust and occasionally a clean microfibre cloth if there's any sign of grease. Never used cleaning liquid of any sort.
