Your polarized sunglasses serve you well by reducing light glare and eyestrain while you’re driving, running, biking, golfing, and skiing. Since they improve your vision and safety in the sun, you can’t just rub the lenses off with anything you can grab. Besides keeping a pack of lens cleaning wipes for glasses handy, it’s best to learn more about the proper way to care for your polarized sunglasses.
Things to Remember When Cleaning Your Polarized Sunglasses
Rinse with Warm Water
Did you know that saltwater causes considerable damage to polarized lenses? Although you may not feel any residue, the salt and dust particles that remain on your specs can leave scratches on their surface. For this reason, you should wash your sunglasses with warm water after spending a day at the beach.
Use a Microfiber Cloth
Wiping off dirt on your sunglasses with your shirt can smear or scratch the polarized lens’s coating. Likewise, using other abrasive materials such as paper towels, tissues, napkins, or toilet paper will also cause scrapes and scratches.
If your glasses come with a small microfiber cleaning cloth, you’ll want to use it to clean your lenses. Besides being lint-free, microfiber cloths can effectively trap dust and debris. Additionally, they won’t smear your lenses.
Use the Right Lens Cleaner
When choosing the right lens cleaning formula, be sure to buy one that has a pH level between 5.5 and 8. Extreme pH levels will do your polarized sunglasses more harm than good. Unless you’re willing to run the risk of causing damage to your mirror lens coatings, avoid using alcohol-based household cleaners such as Windex.
