When you get your new glasses from eye-bar, we’ll tell you how to properly clean them at home. In case you’re too busy staring at the new you in the mirror to remember what we said, here’s what our opticians recommend for cleaning your glasses at home. Do this at least 3 times a week for best results.
Fill a container with tap water and add a drop of dish detergent (nothing antibacterial as that will damage the coatings).
Submerge the entire frame in the solution and leave for a few minutes. Some exceptions: If frame has any crystals, leather, wood, or horn, do not leave submerged. Just dip them in the solution. The crystals are most likely glued and the glue will be weakened if they have extended contact with water.
Finally, take the frame out of the solution and dry with microfiber cloth (no need to rinse).
Remember to hand wash a microfiber cloth in the sink with plain dish detergent – softeners and anti-static agents in laundry detergent remain in the cloth, ruining its effectiveness and (more importantly) damaging the lens coatings when you wipe your glasses dry.
And next time you’re in the eye-bar neighbourhood: Don’t forget that we do complimentary cleaning on frames we sell for the life of the frame!
