Instructions using home tools
Remove the glasses from your face, and using a mild liquid soap (a lotion-free hand wash, or gentle washing up liquid will suffice) place a drop on each lens, front and back. Gently massage in the gel to the lens with your fingers, before running it under warm water as you do so. Eventually, rinse off the lens’ under the warm water, and finish with drying with a soft lint free cloth. A clean microfiber cloth or a specialist glasses lens cloth is a great way of drying them.
