How to Clean, Store & Maintain Your Glasses
Posted in

Your glasses are more than just a tool for better vision – they’re a fashion statement and an extension of your personality. But, no matter how stylish or expensive your glasses are, they won’t look their best if they’re dirty, scratched, or poorly maintained. In this article, we’ll share some easy and effective tips on how to clean, store, and maintain your glasses, so they always look their best.

How to Clean Your Glasses

Cleaning your glasses is an essential part of maintaining their appearance and ensuring optimal vision. Here are some dos and don’ts to keep in mind when cleaning your glasses:

Dos

  • Use a microfiber cloth: A microfiber cloth is the best tool for cleaning your glasses. It’s soft, and gentle, and won’t scratch or damage your lenses. You can find microfiber cloths at any optical shop, or you can buy them online.
  • Use gentle soap: If your glasses are especially dirty, you can use gentle soap to clean them. Use a small drop of soap, and mix it with warm water. Then, dip your microfiber cloth into the solution, wring it out, and gently wipe your glasses clean.
  • Rinse with warm water: After cleaning your glasses, rinse them thoroughly with warm water to remove any soap residue. Avoid using hot water, as it can damage your lenses.

Don’ts

  • Use paper towels or napkins: Paper towels or napkins may seem like a quick and easy way to clean your glasses, but they can scratch your lenses and leave behind lint and fibers.
  • Use harsh chemicals: Harsh chemicals like ammonia, bleach, or vinegar can damage your glasses’ coating or lenses. Stick to gentle soap and warm water.
  • Blow on your lenses: Blowing on your lenses may seem like a harmless way to remove dust or debris, but it can actually deposit moisture and bacteria on your glasses. Use a microfiber cloth instead.

How to Store Your Glasses

Storing your glasses properly is an important part of maintaining their appearance and preventing damage. Here are some tips for storing your glasses:

Use a Case

The best way to store your glasses is in a protective case. A case will prevent your glasses from getting scratched, bent, or broken. When you’re not wearing your glasses, always store them in a case.

Choose the Right Case

There are different types of cases available, including hard cases, soft cases, and pouches. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Hard Cases: These provide the most protection for your glasses, but they can be bulky and take up more space.
  • Soft Cases: These are lightweight and more portable than hard cases, but they don’t offer as much protection.
  • Pouches: These are the most lightweight and portable option, but they don’t offer any protection from bumps or drops.

Consider your lifestyle and choose a case that suits your needs.

Clean Your Case

Your glasses case can get dirty over time, so it’s important to clean it regularly. Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe the inside and outside of the case. If the case is very dirty, you can use gentle soap and warm water. Make sure the case is completely dry before putting your glasses back in it.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Direct sunlight can damage your glasses over time, so avoid leaving them in a place where they’ll be exposed to the sun for long periods of time. If you need to leave your glasses in your car, for example, store them in a case and put them in the glove compartment or under the seat.

Keep Them Away from Heat

Heat can also damage your glasses, so avoid leaving them in hot places like a car dashboard or near a radiator. If your glasses get too hot, they can warp or even melt. Store them in a cool, dry place instead.
