We've all done it. When our glasses are smudged up we reach for the corner of our shirt and clean them off. You probably even know that's the wrong way to clean glasses, but you do it anyway. The reason your shirt is terrible for cleaning glasses is because it's likely filled with dust, and that scratches the lenses.
You also shouldn't use anything with ammonia, bleach, vinegar, or window cleaner because those chemicals strip away the coatings on your glasses.
Eyeglasses are prone to buildup of natural oils from your hands, face, and eyelashes, creating a sticky layer of dirt and grime. This tends to give you a blurry vision through the lenses.
So what if you're microfiber cloth is AWOL and you don't have the lense spray we gave you on hand? A gengle soap, warm water and clean cotton cloth will do.
“If the eye does not want to see, neither light nor glasses will help.”
