Kind of like if it's not broke don't fix it type of deal IMO. Do your best to try to keep it clean. Don't use chemicals on them. Only use a microfiber cloth to clean the lenses. Keep it in a case when not in use. Cleaning it will not increase it's lifetime. Taking good care of it will

What do i use to clean the headset and controllers

For the controllers, just whatever sanitary wipes you’d normally use, obviously don’t get them soaked though. 

The headset should always be kept in - case (the box it came with works for me) when not being used (also avoids light getting in the lens), and other than a microfiber (without any liquid) for the lens, I can’t really see why you’d need to clean it? It’s not like you’re sitting on the couch with a game pad where you’re eating while playing VR is it? If you okay games where you’re sweating then I’d recommend getting the silicon cover for the face mask so you can take it off and clean it. 

Other than the occasional smudged lens my headset looks the same as it did when I got it over a year ago. Also, I see people put it up on their forehead when taking a breather, personally my forehead hits the lens and gunks them all up so I don’t recommend it, plus I feel like you’re asking for it to fall off your head and crash to the floor. Obviously this may not be the case for everyone.

Honest you should just learn to enjoy it and quit worrying about scrubbing it

@ashleighrose28  Please learn to google for things beforehand.  A quick google on cleaning the Oculus quest would lead you to this Oculus support page;

I don’t even think they’re reading the responses until they get the answer they’re looking for...which is, oddly, “you need to clean it frequently” 😂
