Cleaning Eyeglasses With Dish Soap?

Can I use ordinary diluted washing up liquid to clean my eye glasses? Someone said they wash their eye glasses in washing up liquid and water before they wash up the dishes, but my optician said no. Apparently you can use lotion free types which are OK, but what brands are these? My glasses need cleaning several times a day for some reason. My last optician said probably my eye makeup is causing the problem, but why only in the last 3 years and not before? I've been wearing it for like 50 years and glasses for 27 yrs.

Any mild soap can be used with a soft cloth or microfibre. Regular dish soap works, but be sure to rinse well & be sure it doesn't have lotion in it. Also at Dollar Tree you can get a pack of special lense wipes that work well & Walmart & other stores carry a spritz bottle of lense cleaner that works a lot better than dish soap & you should not have a smeary residue to contend with. The special lens cleaners are fairly cheap and do an excellent job cleaning glasses lenses leaving them streak free and clear to see through.

I had one set of lenses that seemed to be dirty all the time. I finally went back to glass lenses because they seemed to stay cleaner longer. I think it is something they are adding to the lenses now that cause this problem.

I always clean my glasses with dish soap or even wipes I clean the computer monitor with. I don't find that it hurts them at all. But to be on the safe side you can go to Costco and buy a giant pack of lens wipes to use on your glasses. You can even get these in any market. I'd just look at the price and select the ones that aren't too expensive to use.

That's what I use when mine get dirty enough that the regular cleaning cloth does not help. Make sure you use lint-free cloth.

Soap will leave a film if not rinsed off completely. Dry with a lint-free cloth.

Tiny tiny amount of any mild soap can work. Like Dawn Original, something mild without lotions, scents, etc. Make sure to shake dry and use a lint free towel or, microfiber cloth.
