Maybe it could be great with a thread about taking proper care of the Rift (and Quest - or whatever hmd you use).
I'd be happy to start with one subject. Especially the Rift CV1 is known for the straps becoming white after some years - it looks like this (note this is not my CV1, I found this photo on the web):
That does look bad - can't have guests over and then hand them a hmd that looks like something the cat dragged home from the sewer, lol - and my CV1 was starting to look much the same. But I just found a great solution (I think) - now my CV1 looks mint again (or close)
Also, I still use this solution for storing both Index and CV1 - basically means no dust at all and CV1 looks like new with very little dust accumulated:
Had some large transparent bags for CGC mags, but they work for HMDs too Index is in the front, CV1 in the back. The bags aren't completely sealed to allow some ventilation and avoid any build-up of humidity and moisture.
If you have some tricks or ideas for taking great care of your hmd, do post them here!
