3 Easy Tips to Keep Your Sunglasses Clean
Like most things you invest a lot of money in, glasses and sunglasses require maintenance. Luckily, there's not too much surface area to cover so it doesn't take too long to clean your sunglasses. We suggest using optical cleaner every day and running them under lukewarm tap water when they get really dirty. When you wipe the lenses dry, be sure to use a microfiber cleaning cloth and not a T-shirt.
Most sunglasses come with a microfiber cloth doubling as a soft case, so just make sure to wash the cloth too! Run it with your towels and don't use fabric softener, as the chemicals in softener can leave smudges on your lenses.
As Sunglass Rob loves to say, "On your face or in the case, that way you won't have to replace!" When you're not wearing your sunglasses, we know it can be tempting to put them on your head, shirt front, or on a table, but we really recommend putting them in their case. They're less prone to getting lost or breaking this way, plus, the case will keep your sunglasses safe from scratches and dust.
We know you'll probably set them on a table at some point anyway (hey, we do it too), so be sure to set the frames upside down and not lens down to avoid scratching and be more stable.
This is especially important for prescription lenses. Heat messes up the coatings on your lenses, so don't leave your sunglasses in your car. Heat can also damage the frame material, so once your sunglasses are in their case, put them in your pocket or purse to avoid forgetting them in your car!
