Hello, I have an acrylic dome port that needs a bit of a clean. I rinse it off well after a dive but it seems to get a little bit of a film on it or a bit of oil from possibly my hand accidenlty touching it. Can anyone recommend a product to use to clean it and what kind of cloth to use so it will not scratch. The other problem I have is no matter how careful I am inserting and removing the camera from the housing I still seem to get bits of lint etc on the inside of the dome. Is there any special way to clean this?

Thanks,

Matt

For the dust part: http://wetpixel.com/...t...6&hl=inside

cleaning can be with any lens cloth or microfibre. If it is just a little skin oil you might want to use a mild soap.
