I have always washed them under cool water, using a little liquid soap (dish soap back in the days before we had "pumps"), then setting them on a towel opened up so that they're not lenses down. In between, I just used a tissue and my own hot air! (07/24/2010)

Homemade Eyeglass Cleaner


  • 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap
  • 1 cup all purpose citrus cleaner
  • warm water to fill a quart or liter jug

Mix well, label the jug, and use it to refill your lipstick size mist sprayer. This mix is safe for coated lenses and on cameras, too. Remember to throw your cleaning/drying cloths into the
wash frequently. They accumulate the grit that you didn't rinse off, plus what they picked up from the air. The best
cleaner is no help, if you dry the glasses with sandpaper.

I used to work at a nation wide chain optical shop (it was and still is one of the top chains) and was surprised when I found out what they used in the back room to clean glasses. Out front they sold "special formula" eyeglass cleaner. But in the back they kept a large bottle of Windex and that's what they used back where the public couldn't see. I've used it ever since and have never had a problem yet with my glasses, even the ones with different films and tints on them. (07/25/2010)

Look under Archives and read my post by MCW. I wrote down the formula, it's just like the glass cleaner that is sold in optical shops. (07/26/2010)

Wipe with a clean Miracle Cloth. Better than any solution. (07/29/2010)

I use hand sanitizer. A drop on each lens and spread it around both sides, then "dry" with soft cloth. (07/30/2010)

I use isopropyl alcohol on a cotton ball and wipe dry with a soft cloth rag. Never use tissues, toilet paper, or paper towels to wipe dry because the wood fibers can scratch the lenses. (07/30/2010)
