I've never worn eyeglasses before and I was never a big fan of sunglasses either. Recently, I had to buy a pair of sunglasses because I spend a lot of time in front of a computer and my eyes started hurting a lot. So, here I am 2 months later working every day with my new reflector glasses on and I have to say that there is a huge difference. I am even beating myself up that I didn't got a pair earlier. After a couple of days of wearing my new glasses I noticed that they get dirty very easily. Sweat and skin oils, flakes of dry skin, dandruff from my hair, grime with unknown origin and it is also quite noticeable if you're looking for these signs. Don't get me wrong, I am not some guy who doesn't shower with days – I am as hygienic as possible. It is just that these glasses get really dirty and they have to be properly cleaned regularly. Without further ado, here is the right way to clean your eyeglasses. |
Each pair of new eyeglasses should come with a box and a microfibre napkin. This is some sort of unspoken law between opticians... some of them are greedy and will try to weasel their way out of this secret agreement and try to sell you the box and napkin – how lame. Anyway, both the box and the napkin are very important. You need the microfibre napkin to properly clean your lenses without scratching them. As it turns out, glass used for lenses is quite soft on the surface and it can be easily scratched. Wiping the lenses with microfibre cloth and nothing else is a must! Otherwise, you will need new eyeglasses very soon. According to the expert Wapping Cleaners, wiping the lenses with a microfibre napkin is a good way to deal with accident smudges from your fingers or skin flakes.
Eventually, your eyeglasses will require a deeper cleaning procedure... unless you want to be dirty. If you want to look like some grossly unsanitary person then cleaning those glasses is a bad idea – keep them smudgy and sticky. Anyway, a deeper cleaning can be executed with water and mild dish-washing liquid. Place your eyeglasses under warm running water and try not to drop them in the sink. Put a little dish-washing liquid on your fingers and gently rub the lenses and the frame. Rinse with warm water and you're done. Use microfibre cloth to properly dry your eyeglasses and they are good to go.
For a quick cleaning at home, I use vinegar diluted with water. Did you know that vinegar is actually a pretty good cleaner? Apparently, it has hundreds if not thousands of practical uses and it can be used for domestic cleaning. The acetic acid it contains can deal with a wide range of unsanitary agents including house dust mites, bacteria, germs, etc. So, dilute some vinegar with water and dip a small piece of microfibre in the mixture – give your eyeglasses a thorough wiping and you're good to go. This is the best way to clean your eyeglasses – I hope that you will try these methods.
