Easy Tips on How to Clean Glasses

Did you know that cleaning your glasses with your shirt can scratch the lenses? Let’s discuss how to safely clean your glasses.

What NOT to Use as Eyeglass Cleaner

Even though most of these items are typically what you have on hand, they shouldn’t be used for cleaning your glasses. EyeCare Associates does NOT recommend using:

  • Window / Glass cleaner solution

  • Bleach

  • Paper towels

  • Saliva

  • Shirts, blankets, or bath towel

Instead, USE these products:

  • Lens cleaning solution

  • Lens cleaning wipes

  • Microfiber towel

  • Soap and warm water

After cleaning your glasses, always make sure to store them in a case.
