Three comments: I have always heard that since paper is made from wood pulp it can scratch glasses.

My glasses were tuning cloudy when I cleaned them and when I told my optical store what that I was using alcohol with a little Dawn in it they said the alcohol reacts with those coatings and is causing the cloudiness.

They said if I am going to make my own to use distilled water with a few drops of Dawn or any dish washing liquid in it and that has solved my problem.

Opticians have warned me that paper can scratch the lenses. You should only use a soft, clean cotton or cotton-flannel cloth.

I asked the same question at an optical shop and I was told to use a soft cotton cloth and a mixture of a small amount of rubbing alcohol and water.

I had an old flannel nightie that I cut up and use to clean my glasses. There are commercial products but soap and water does it for me letting them dry then polishing with the flannel

Be sure you rinse the lenses well before cleaning or polishing to remove any particles that may scratch the lens surface.

most all materials will scratch plastic with coated lenses over time. I use a micro fabric cloth from lenscrafters works great without liquid and can be washed when dirty

NEVER USE PAPER! Paper towels are the WORST...they have impeded grit from the pulp.

Here is my fool-proof solution for any type of lenses (even coated ones):
1.) Fill a clean spray bottle 7/8 full of filtered water (Zero water pitcher is what I use but Brita water will work too).

2.) Add unscented Witch Hazel until nearly full.
3.) Add 1-2 drops of good quality Baby Shampoo/body wash.
4.) Cap the bottle and gently swirl to mix.
5.) ALWAY SPRAY YOUR LENSES TO WET THEM FIRST. Wipe your glasses with a clean micro-fiber cloth until dry.
