Most people who wear eyeglasses have experienced the annoyance of an oily fingerprint or smudge in the center of the lens. While quickly wiping the spot away with a handy paper towel or the bottom of your shirt is tempting, it could scratch your lenses. Instead of reaching for a quick fix, extend the life of your plastic eyeglasses and remove any smudges from your line of sight with proper cleaning.
Things You’ll Need:
1 Wet the plastic eyeglass with warm water.
2 Apply a small amount of mild liquid soap to the eyeglasses frame and both sides of the lenses, or spray on a glass cleaner containing ammonia.
3 Rub the soap or cleaner gently onto the plastic eyeglasses to remove any visible dirt or oil.
4 Rinse the plastic lenses under running water to remove the soap or cleaner.
5 Dry the eyeglasses with a soft tissue or a lint-free cloth.
Tips & Warnings
You can also use cleaners specifically designed for cleaning plastic eyeglass lenses rather than liquid soap or glass cleaner..Avoid using a rough towel on the lenses of your plastic eyeglasses, as it may leave behind scratches.
