I am looking for tips for cleaning eyeglasses.
I was told by my eye doctor that using a mild soap and rinsing them under the faucet is the best way to remove sand/dirt/debris from them so they don't scratch the lens. Good luck!
I clean mine with a drop of hand soap (which I smear around both sides of the lens with clean hands) and then rinse well, blotting dry with a terrycloth towel. Don't use anything that has paper fibers in it -- such as toilet paper or tissues -- because they will add fine scratches every time they are used.
The lens clenaing cloths that they sell at Target Optical work nicely. $5.00.
If your lenses are polycarbonate, soap may not rinse off completely. Try putting about 4 oz. of plain water in a container, add about 2 tbs. of white vinegar and dip your glasses in it. Then, wipe dry with a clean cloth. Microfiber is best if you have it. You can use this mixture over and over, but I replace mine weekly. Just keep it covered between uses.
Eye doctor told me to get a small spray bottle [WalMart-50¢] half fill it with water and add 3 or 4 drops of dish detergent [for washing dishes by hand]. Spritz lenses on both sides and wipe with a tissue that has no added 'lotion'. I found Viva paper towels [Big roll, Choose size] the softest and using the smallest size will clean my glasses several time a day.
I was told by my eye doctor not to use kleenex, paper towels or anything like that cause they have wood fibers in them and will scratch the lens...I just use plain water and wipe with a facecloth....my brother told me last wk that those little wet wipes (that come with fast food places) work great but haven't tried it yet. :0)
I keep a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol to spray on my lens and then wipe with an old cotton t shirt
I saturate a soft cloth with rubbing alcohol. clean lenses, rinse with water and dry with soft cloth or very soft paper towel.
We use plain old soap and water. Dry with a soft towell.
I used to work for Eye Care Professionals, and my boss (the Owner) would keep his glasses in a cup of water with a little dawn dish detergent over night. Dawn takes all your face oils off while you sleep.
