How to prevent scratches
If you wear your glasses every day, then you are probably aware of the fact that they get dirty with time. However, it is not just about dirt and dust that stick to the frames or lenses. You should also know that most of us are guilty of scratching our eyeglasses without even realizing it. This can happen in many different ways. For example, if you put your glasses on top of your head while you are working at home or in front of the computer, then there is a high chance that they will get scratched by something near them. Another common way of damaging your eyeglasses is by cleaning them with a rough cloth or paper towel which can easily scratch the lenses and frame top. Therefore, we recommend using a soft cloth or microfiber lens cleaner. Be sure there are not any rough debris on the glasses before you wipe!
How to clean the lenses
When it comes to cleaning your glasses, there are two things that you need to do: remove any dirt from their surfaces and rinse off all chemical residue from any products used for cleaning purposes like soap or detergent.
In order to clean your glasses properly, you need to use water and mild soap. If there are stains on the lens, simply rub them gently with a soft cloth and then rinse with water immediately afterwards. Make sure that all soap residue has been removed before placing them back on your face because it may cause irritation over time if left behind after rinsing off thoroughly. If there are any marks left behind after rinsing off the soap residue, try using eye glass cleaning solution that comes in spray form. Also disposable lens cleaning wipes can also be purchased. Often these have the cleaner in them.
Cleaning the nose pads
To clean your glasses, first remove any dust or dirt from the frame, lenses and nose pads by wiping with a damp microfiber cloth. If there is still any dirt or dust left on the surface of your glasses, use a soft brush and gently scrub the area where dirt is visible until it's completely removed. Also be careful not to get too much water on the surface of your glasses as this can damage them over time!
The nose pads are made of rubber material and can easily get dirty if they are not cleaned regularly. They can be cleaned using a soft cloth and mild soap. Make sure that after cleaning them, they are dried properly so that they do not attract dust particles and bacteria.
Cleaning the frame top
If there are any stains on the frame, use a soft cloth dipped in warm water to wipe it off. If there are any stubborn stains on your frame, you can use toothpaste instead of dishwashing liquid for better results (use with caution). Just rub some toothpaste on the stained area and wipe it off after 15 minutes or so, then rinse off with warm water and dry with a soft cloth dipped in clean water.
The top part of the frame can get dirty from rubbing up against your skin during use, so it's important to clean this area regularly as well. Use warm water mixed with mild soap and wipe down these surfaces using a soft cloth or microfiber cloth dipped in the mixture until they are completely clean again. Once they are dry, put your glasses back on so that you can see how much better they look!
