How to Clean Glasses Properly, and What Not to Do

There are some things that should not be done when cleaning eyeglasses, such as using window cleaner or dish soap. We recommend using water and a microfiber cloth instead. When getting spectacles online in Sri Lanka or even spectacle frames in Sri Lanka, you should know how to take good care of them so that you can use them for a long time.

The first thing you should do when cleaning glasses is to remove the lenses. Next, make sure your hands are dry and free of dirt or oil. You can spray a lens cleaner onto the cloth before beginning to clean, this will cut through any grease that may be present on your glasses. Use small circular motions with soft pressure for best results. This process ensures no scratches occur on the glass surface as it cleans. Avoid spraying water directly into or around hinges and joints, since these areas tend to trap grime more easily than others. Once both lenses have been cleaned thoroughly, reattach them back in place by lining up notches and pushing down until an audible click lets you know they’re locked securely again (this step might take some practice but it will only take a few times before you’re able to replace lenses like an expert).

Make sure that both the front and back of your eyeglasses are free from dust, dirt, or grime. Wet a clean cloth with lukewarm water and wring it out thoroughly so that only a small amount is left on the surface of the cloth. Clean one side of each lens at a time using slow circular motions with soft pressure before switching sides.

Things that you should not do while cleaning eye glasses are:

Do not use paper towels or toilet tissue. These papers are made of wood pulp, which scratches lenses easily when they are wet and in the presence of dirt.
Do not clean eyeglasses with acetone because it can damage hard coatings on your lenses that repel dirt.
Never wipe glasses dry unless you have used a microfiber cloth to do so.
Never use your shirt sleeve to wipe eye glasses. Your shirt sleeves contain dust particles, dead skin cells, hair follicles, body oils from perspiration, as well as other types of contaminants which can scratch lenses.
