[What are b]est practices for cleaning your glasses/keeping your glasses clean?
Although we do not know the answer to this question ourselves, one of us happens to have a husband who has made an in depth study of this question and has strong opinions on the topic (though he is continually searching out new suggestions and will probably read the comments of this thread with great interest).
DH says: What I do now is, if they’re dirty with oil or grease, I wash them with soap and water in the sink, then shake them as dry as I can get them and then sort of lightly dab them with a towel to get the water off, then use micro-fiber cloth.
For everyday use, like when I get up in the morning, I wipe them down with micro-fiber.
I also have Zeiss disposible wipes, but I haven’t bought any in a while. I keep some in the car.
Note to follow the instructions on washing the micro-fiber cloths. They can be hand-washed (without fabric softener!) but shouldn’t be dried in the dryer.
When you get glasses, I recommend always getting the hardness coating. I’ve gotten other coatings and they’ve been of varying benefits, but they always scratch too easily, whereas with the hardness coating my glasses tend to last until the frame breaks.
I think that’s pretty much it.
