Once And For All, This Is The Right Way To Clean Your Sunglasses

Cleaning your sunglasses seems simple – you just grab the bottom of your shirt or a wet paper towel and wipe away any smudges, and that’s all there is to it, right? Wrong. Cleaning your smudged sunglasses the wrong way can actually seriously damage or ruin the lenses – and it can be especially detrimental if your sunglasses have prescription lenses in them.

The next time you’re sunglasses have one too many fingerprints on them, or are all sticky and foggy after a day at the beach, simply take them to the sink and grab some dishwashing soap. (Just make sure it’s one without any added lotions or moisturizers!) Run the lenses under warm water and use your fingertips to wash them with dishwashing soap. Rinse them with warm water and then gently dry them with a lint-free cloth. (The tiny one that’s included with most glasses cases works great!)

If you need to clean them frequently or on the go, lens cleaner spray, like Ultra Clarity Lens Cleaner ($12.97), also works great – but always wipe the lenses down with a cloth. Paper towels can leave behind permanent scratches!

While properly cleaning your glasses can take a little extra time, it’s worth it in the long run – you’ll want to actually be able to, you know, see out of your sunglasses after all!
