Eyeglasses are pricey, so if you own any, you will need to take good care of them as best you can.
How? Let’s take a look at a few important cleaning tips to better eyewear care:
Wiping your eyeglasses
DO rinse your glasses off first with clean, warm water before wiping with a microfiber cloth. You won’t notice the tiny specs of dust and dirt on your lenses. Don’t allow them to build up until it’s too late, so a regular wiping is always important.
NEVER wipe your glasses if they’re dry! If you haven’t rinsed the debris on the surface, you’ll run the risk of scratches!
DO have your glasses adjusted once a year. Head over to where you purchased them and have them fitted for you. These should help keep your beloved specs from wearing down due to rust.
DON’T bend your nose piece! This can happen a lot if you push them by the nose bridge. You end up bending your nose pieces as a result. Push them by the bottom of the frame instead.
DO clean your eyeglasses with a decent cleaning cloth like cotton or microfiber. Also, have some decent cleaning fluid if you want to keep them clear. Liquid soap will do just fine.
DON’T spit on your lens! It carries so much risk of you messing up your lenses even more!
DO keep your glasses safe in a protective case or an eyeglasses holder! Have a case where they can lie secured and not scattered in your bag should you to take them out on a trip.
DON’T leave them lying around. Don’t place them on the top of your head all day or on a sink where they could fall in. Also, don’t just stuff them in your bag or purse where they can be hit and crushed by a number of things you’ve put in there. Eyewear care is also important.
