Eye glasses constantly need cleaning if they are not to impair eyesight with greasy fingerprints, dust, spots and other miscellaneous material that seems to be drawn to glasses. Glasses are sold in a case usually with a polishing cloth for a quick polish during the day but from time to time a more thorough clean is recommended.
The Cleaner Method
First rinse your glasses to ensure that any particles do not scratch the glasses.
Use an eyeglass spray or cleaner and with a cloth over either side of the glasses, rub over the glass lens and the frame with the cleaner.
The Rinse Method
Rinse the lenses under warm running water. Add a spot or two of mild soap, liquid soap or dish washing liquid to your fingertips and work over the lenses to break up any greasy deposits.
Using circular motions to remove the soap, rinse the glasses under running water.
If the glasses are truly clean there will be very little water left on the lenses. Dry the lenses and frames with a clean soft cloth.
The Dunk Method
Fill a sink with warm soapy water. Dunk the glasses and swish them around. Rinse the glasses under running water. Shake to remove excess water and dry using a soft cloth.
Cleaning Eye Glasses with Vinegar
Try cleaning your glasses with vinegar from time to time. Just rub a couple of spots of vinegar onto each lens and wipe off with a soft cloth.
The acetic acid in the vinegar dissolves grease, oil from your skin and stuck-on dirt, leaving your glasses streak free and shining.
Vinegar does not discolor the lenses like ammonia-based cleaners, it is environmentally friendly and there are no harsh chemical smells and irritants to contend with.
