Spectacle Cleaner

I, as I'm sure a lot of you, wear glasses, and there is nothing more annoying than dust,smears & fingerprints on the lenses.

You can clean them with a clean cloth,soap or even washing up liquid (Not recommended)however I have found a better option.

From your local Pound shop, get a LCD cleaning kit, consists of a bottle of liquid, cloth and brush. A light spray on your glasses, not only cleans them, but also seems to make them anti-static, so they stay cleaner for longer.

I just sling mine in the water, rub with soap, rinse and dry. It's worked for 65 years!!

Lidl sell own brand[W5]sachets of impregnated tissues 50 in a box for a pound or so.

Keep some in the car in your wallet/bumbag/handbag and you will be able to do the job where ever you are.

Calotherm and a tissue, or Specsavers own brand.

A little washing up liquid works like a dream, supposedly used by Anne Robinson on her large wardrobe of Specs.

Washing up liquid contains Sulphuric Acid, which can pit the lenses, if not cleaned off properly.

Sparkyjack Thanks for the tip about Lidl's
