  • Holding the frame – the frame should always be help on both sides. Otherwise, one side bears all the weight and may bend under the pressure.
  • Warm water – slightly warm water are perfect to weakening the dirt particles which have harden on the lens. If you come across any persistent dirt particles, you may consider using mild soap solution. During this phase, be careful not to push on the lens as it might come out of place.
  • Dry the frame and lens - at this stage many people accidentally damage the lens by creating accidental scratches. Place the frame on a soft and sturdy surface. Drying should be done using a soft micro fibre cloth which does not pick up any dirt along the way. Any other cloth may contain dirt which will rub on the delicate lens.
  • Place in a safe place – when the glasses are away from your face or not in use, they should be covered in a micro fibre cloth and placed in a hard protective case. This might seem trivial, but poor storage leads to frame and lens damage.

Together with the above tips always use common sense. If you think a certain cleaning process may be counter productive, it probably is.
