Sunglasses do a lot of work for you from protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays and they add some style to your wardrobe. Sunglasses take care of our eyes so it’s important to take care of them. Properly cleaning your sunglasses can make them last longer and avoid any damage to your sunglass lenses. Below we share a few simple steps on how to correctly clean your sunglasses.
Rinse Your Sunglasses
First, remember to wash your hands before cleaning your sunglasses. Then you should run your sunglasses under lukewarm water. You can easily do this under any faucet, but it’s important to remember that the water isn’t too hot and the water is running lightly.
Cleaning the Sunglass Lenses
After you have rinsed the sunglasses, you should clean the lenses with a tiny amount of dish soap. Avoid any soaps with lotion or moisturizers in them since they can cause damage to the lenses. Add just a driblet of dish soap to your finger tip and start by cleaning the exterior and then the interior of the lenses. Then after you can clean the frames, sides, and the nose pads last. If your sunglasses have an indent at all like where the sunglass logo is then you can clean this part with a cloth or handkerchief to get in the nooks and crannies.
Rinse the Sunglasses Again
Take very good care of rinsing them again by avoiding heavy pressure from the faucet and hot water. Remember to fully rinse them before drying to avoid any smudges or smearing on the sunglass lenses so definitely make sure that all the soap has been removed from the sunglasses before this step.
Drying the Sunglasses
Using a lint free cleaning cloth gently rub the glasses dry. Try to avoid using any cloths that have texture to them since they can scratch the lenses. If your pair of sunglasses have a lot of details to them you should leave them out to air dry before putting them back on.
Go Rock Your Clean Shades
It’s important to remember to always keep your sunglasses clean by following these steps above. Remember to never clean your sunglasses with your shirt so you can prevent any scratches from getting on the sunglass lenses. Also, always remember to blow any dirt or residue away before cleaning your sunglasses to avoid any extra damage like scratches. Carry a sunglass case and sunglass cleaning cloth with you for the benefit of your shades. Keep wearing your clean shades in style!
