I am so excited to share this super, super fast and easy way to clean sunglasses!
It might seem like a silly little thing but I will raise my hand and confess to being a terrible abuser of sunglasses.
I don’t clean them- heck I barely use the case for them. If they are smudged or dirty I just wipe them off with the hem of my shirt and move on with my day.
But I read this tip in Real Simple and I just had to share because it is so easy!
To clean your sunglasses just head into the kitchen and assemble the following:
- Coffee Filters or a lint free rag
- Dish Soap
- Bowl of water (I used a mason jar)
So just fill your bowl or jar with water and then add about 1-2 drops of dish soap. That is it!
Next dunk your sunglasses for just a second. Pull them out and use the coffee filter to rub the lenses.
Hopefully you have lovely shiny clear as all get out sunglasses!
Now I went hiking with the kids the other day and then swimming with the little stinkers yesterday. So my shades were in bad shape- dust from our hike and then little water spots from splashing in the pool.
I did the process above and in like 10 seconds my sunglasses were crystal clear! yeah!
*NOTE: If you have prescription sunglasses or anything fancy on your glasses, check with your optometrist first.
And you might be wondering if this will work for eyeglasses as well?
I dunno. My little girl wears glasses and this is the homemade recipe I use:
- 50% Water
- 50% Isopropyl Alcohol
Mix in a little squirt bottle and spritz on the lens. I use the coffee filters to clean those too.
Again, I would check with an optometrist first just to be sure this is safe for your glasses.
