| p.1 #17 · A question about lens cleaning??? |
As a glasses wearer, and a engineer, I tried for years to find a method to clean my glasses.
This is similar to cleaning the lens of my camera.
My concern was that many methods of daily cleaning would destroy the surface of the glasses.
Paper towels have long fibers of cellulose, strong enough to scratch the glass. Many people use paper towels, many people get to replace their glasses.
Bathroom TP has incredibly short fibers of cellulose. This product is concocted with short fibers for comfort during its "other use". I have found that with daily use of TP, my glasses are still scratch free after as much as 1500 cleanings.
I do not use micro fiber, as it is almost impossible to keep gritty contaminants from almost instantly turning microfiber into "sandpaper". Microfiber is a "dust magnet".
If I could buy microfiber in a pack, like tissues come in, single use and disposable, then microfiber would be #1 for lens cleaning.
As for the ideal cleaning solution, Sears sells some concoction that seems to be ideal for not streaking the surface and has great packaging. They sell it in their glasses "booth". It comes with a small pocket size atomizer, and a refill bottle. Plus, they will refill the refill bottle for free!! WOOT!
The solution seems to have a great evaporation rate, well suited to cleaning a lens, as well as my laptop.
No more tee shirt wiping for me!!
