How to clean your glasses

How to clean both your frames and lenses.

We all need a little TLC now and then, and so do your frames. Before you dive in, you'll need to arm yourself with a few vital tools:

  • Non-acidic soap

  • lukewarm water

  • A (clean) soft cloth

To clean both your frames and lenses:
  • Wash and dry your hands thoroughly.

  • Hold the frame by the nose bridge or temple.

  • Take a small bowl of lukewarm water with a dash of soap.

  • Wipe the lenses with a clean, damp cloth.

  • Start making gentle, circular movements in the lens from the outside to the inside.

  • Repeat until you see that the lenses are clean again.

  • Very gently start cleaning the frames.

  • Take a dry cloth and ensure there is no water left behind.

  • Ta-da!


Avoid doing the following:
  • Don’t dry with heat (hairdryer, etc.)

  • Don’t clean with solvents

  • Don’t make jerky movements when cleaning

  • Don’t leave glasses in direct sunlight

  • Don’t leave glasses wet for too long

  • Don’t clean with a dirty cloth

  • Don’t use too much liquid when cleaning

  • Don’t leave it too long before you wash your glasses
