Having trouble reaching the corners of your glasses' frames while cleaning them up? Here are some tips tp help you out.
1. The lens:
Be gentle with any chemicals that you use on the lens. If it’s just dirty and not greasy, it’s best to clean it with just a soft, dry cotton cloth. To get rid of grease, use a professional solution.
2. Nose pads:
Their surface tends to be dirt-proof as they are made from plastic acetate. The best way to get rid of it is to dip the glasses in warm water for about two hours.
3. Clean gently:
The frames tend to get a tinge due to regular wear. The best way to prevent it is by cleaning the glasses daily. Dip a cotton cloth in luke warm water and gently wipe down.
4. Metallic frames:
The best way to clean them is to use a dry cloth. But to remove grease, dip some cotton in spirit and clean up.
5. For a through cleaning:
You can take some dish washing soap and use it to work up a lather on the entire frame, including the lenses. Then just rinse it under warm tap water, and don’t scrub it at all. This will dislodge all the debris and also prevent any scratches.
