    1. Rinse the sunglasses under warm (not hot) running water to remove any loose debris from them. 2. Apply a small amount of mild dish detergent or a sunglass-cleaning product to your hands and lather the lenses. 3. Wash the lenses well as well as the nose guards and other areas. The key here is to work it using your thumb and forefinger, without the use of anything abrasive. Rinse them well under warm water. 4. Use a microfiber cloth or lens cleaning cloth to dry the lenses. Do not use any type of paper product here, as this will scratch the lenses considerably. 5. Once the sunglasses are dry, place them into microfiber bags or another sunglass pouch. This will further protect the lenses and keep them clean longer. When using them, avoid touching the lenses with your hands and instead only touch the arms when place them on.

    Ok, I can see that you like your lovely sunglasses so much that you do not want them to be spoiled. So, there are indeed some tips for you to keep them clean at home. First, you should avoid using your clothes to clean the lenses, that would scratch your lenses somehow. Next, just try to use clean water to wash it then softly wipe our the water with a piece of soft cloth. Try to wash it with detergent if necessary. That would help keep your lovely sunglasses clean and clear.

    If you want to clean your sunglasses, you could just use the clean water to wash it and then use the clean cloth to dry it. It will be useful. You could also bring the sunglasses to the real store of the glasses to let the client to clean it for you. It could be clean at the whole look.

    Sweetie, you can moisten the lenses, arms and frame with warm tap water and then dab a drop of soap onto the lenses. Then you can rub the lenses in a circular motion then rub the frame and arms with your thumb or forefinger. After rinsing the glasses with warm water, you can dry them with a lint-free cloth. Lens cleaner can help take the place of soap and water. But before using that, you may need to make sure that the cleaner is safe for anti-reflective and coated lenses. Besides, you must avoid using your breath as a clean product because they only smear dirt around your lenses. You also need to avoid drying your lenses with a paper towel, napkin or your shirt because they will scratch your lenses.

    Well, I think it is very easy to clean the sunglasses. But we should always keep in mind that we need to be gentle with any rubbing agents or chemical solutions and we also should rub the lenses with a piece of clean soft cloth. If there is just dirty on the surfaces of the lenses, you can massage the lenses with a piece of good quality linen or cotton cloth gently. Some people said that we can't blow a breath on the lenses, but actually our breath can act as a cleaning solution and they won't do great damage to the lenses. If the lenses are covered in abundant grease or grim, we may need to apply chemical solutions and warm water to clean them up. We should remember that rub the lenses without some form of moisture may increase the risk of scratching the surfaces. Hope this is helpful.


    I'd like to tell you how to remove dirt and facial oil on the surface of the nose pads. Usually nose pads are made from a resistant type of acetate or plastic. Though they are resistant to dirt and natural facial oil, the dirt and facial oil can get wedged between the nose pads and their frame mounts. You can soak them for a couple of hours in warm water to loosen the residue and then brush them with an old toothbrush or soft bristle brush. Due to the acidic reactions with natural facial oils, plastic frames can form a greenish hue as times passes by. You can adjust the nose pads inward to raise the glasses away from your face or avoid the frame touching the face. It is impossible to remove the green coloration, so you may need to tighten the screws of the frame from time to time. I just learned this recently. Hope this helped!

    Dude, if you have glass or plastic sunglasses, I suggest you to dunk the sunglasses in warm water and then add a couple of drops of dishwashing detergent in it. You can rinse the sunglasses in the tough grease. Or you can spray some commercial window cleaner on the surfaces. But if there are anti-reflection coatings on the lenses, you'd better choose another kind of solution because certain solutions or detergents will create smudges on the lenses and make matter worse. You should use an optical spray which will work fine with glasses, sunglasses or cameras. Hope this helped!
