I keep rubbing alcohol in a small 2 oz. spray bottle. I use it to clean my glasses. You could also use your own homemade glass cleaner, but I find it easier to just fill it with the rubbing alcohol.

This is so simple, inexpensive and effective. After I've finished washing up the breakfast things in hot soapy water, I dip my glasses into the washing up bowl and swirl them around, then dry them on the tea towel before drying any of the cereal bowls.

We were told when we purchased our eyeglasses to just use alcohol in a small spray bottle. We both have special non-glare finishes. The lenses had been damaged on past glasses by other cleaning methods, but this one works beautifully!

If they are glass and do not have a no-glare coating they can be cleaned with just about anything that you would use on a water glass. If they are plastic, it is best to just clean them with water and polish dry with a very soft cloth.

I called up my optical place where I bought my glasses. They have free cleaning cloths just for my glasses which are progressive lenses. I wash them often in warm water, squeeze it out, and lay it to dry.

If you have a warranty on your glasses, stay away from anything they do not recommend--it will void the warranty and they will not replace if they can prove you did not clean them properly. Any tints or special coatings also may be harmed. Walmart has purse size bottles that have free refills, that is a great way to save money.

Miracle cloth. Wipe and away you go. Does not scratch.

I use a mix of water and white vinegar in a spray pump bottle and dry it with a napkin.

ONLY if the napkin is cloth, as paper napkins are, essentially, a wood product, an will scratch the lenses eventually.

Never use napkins. They are made out of paper... Wood! Scratch city! Use 100% cotton, I use an old t-shirt.

As long as you have glass lenses, a napkin or other paper is fine. For plastic, a soft cotton cloth or lens cloth is necessary to prevent scratching.

I purchased a 3 oz. bottle of Ultra Clarity eye glass cleaner from an optical shop. I'd like to make my own copycat solution because this stuff can get quite expensive.
