How to Properly Clean Your Glasses

Like everything you wear, dirt will inevitably find its way on your glasses too.

So what is the correct way to clean your glasses? Here are the steps:

1. Wash your hands thoroughly before handling your glasses.

2. Use a microfiber cloth or a lens cleaning solution specifically made for glasses. Avoid paper towels or tissues as they can leave lint or scratch your lenses.

3. Rinse your glasses under lukewarm running water to remove any loose debris. Be gentle and avoid hot water, as it could damage lens coatings.

4. Apply a small amount of lens cleaning solution to both sides of the lenses. Gently rub the solution in a circular motion using your fingers or a soft cloth to remove fingerprints, oils, and smudges.

5. Rinse your glasses once again under running water to remove the cleaning solution thoroughly.

6. Shake off any excess water and gently pat your glasses dry with a clean, lint-free cloth.

7. For stubborn stains or dirt, use a specialised glasses cleaning spray and follow the instructions provided. Always ensure the spray is safe for your specific frame and lens materials. All new Sparks & Feros eyewear come with a complementary bottle of specialised glasses cleaning spray for your use.

8. Keep your glasses in a protective case when you're not wearing them. This shields them from dust, scratches, and accidental damage.

9. Avoid exposing your glasses to extreme temperatures, such as leaving them in a hot car or near a heater. Extreme temperatures can damage lens coatings or warp your frames.

10. Avoid using harsh chemicals like ammonia or alcohol-based solutions. These substances can strip the lens coating and degrade the quality of your glasses over time.

Keep these tips in mind for crystal clear vision every day!
