How to Clean Your Sunglasses
Posted on November 27 2018
Cleaning your sunglasses is a pretty simple process. There's just one key thing to remember: since you handle your sunglasses often, they're likely to be smudged with oil on a daily basis. The glossy surface of your lenses and frames very easily pick up the oils from your hands. Therefore, water alone isn't enough to clean your sunglasses...
I keep 3 or 4 or Zeiss Lens Cleaning Wipes with me wherever I go (I use them for just about everything but they're very handy for cleaning sunglasses).
I use Zeiss Wipes because they're pre-moistened with rubbing alcohol. The alcohol is necessary for cutting through the grease on the sunglasses.
Below, you'll find a photo of a pair of oversized sunglasses (I wear them daily) that are smudged with oil and grease...
After cleaning the sunglasses with a Zeiss Wipe, the gloss returned to the frames and lenses. Above, you can see a sharper reflection of my ceiling light and table lamp in the lens. And the awesome thing about these wipes is that they're not messy! They're moist towelettes that just get tossed into the trash without a drip or drop left behind.
And if you don't have a Zeiss Wipe handy, dab a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol on a ball of tissue and wipe your sunglasses with that.
By-the-way, this is not a paid ad for Zeiss Wipes. I really do use Zeiss Wipes to clean up every small mess if I have a wipe handy. Zeiss Wipes are also great for cleaning your smartphone screens!
That friend whose sunglasses and iPhone always seem greasy to the touch???
Throw them a Zeiss Wipe! 😂
