The Best Way to Clean Sunglasses (Without Causing Damage)

After you’ve thoroughly rinsed off any dirt and debris, the best way to clean sunglasses is with a minuscule amount of dish soap. Be sure to avoid soaps with any lotion or moisturizers in them, since these can damage or smear the lenses.

Apply a dab of dish soap to your fingertip, then gently scrub every part of your sunglasses, starting with the exterior and interior of the lenses, then moving on to the frames, sides, and nose pads. If your sunglasses have inset details, such as a cut-out pattern or raised logo, use the tip of a lint-free cloth or handkerchief to clean the nooks.
