How to clean your glasses correctly and how often?
Viruses and bacteria accumulate daily on surfaces and can survive for hours, putting our health at risk if they come into contact with our body. The surface of the lenses of our glasses is part of this danger and that is why, now more than ever in times of Coronavirus, proper hygiene is very important.
Just as one of the main recommendations to deal with COVID-19 is to wash our hands frequently, we must have a similar habit with our glasses. In addition to eliminating traces of dirt typical of daily use, we prevent one of the areas of potential contagion, such as our eyes, from being contaminated.
Cleaning without damaging the lenses
How to avoid scratching your lenses in the attempt? For starters, and no matter how tempted you are, never clean your glasses with clothing. Many times we tend to rub the lenses with the edges of shirts or whatever we have on hand, a solution that it can be worse because depending on the material it can damage the crystals.
Another very common mistake is to use abrasive or chemical products. Bleach, hydroalcoholic solutions or alcohol cannot be used to sanitize your glasses because they can damage them. Some kitchen degreasing detergents are also harmful to the lenses, and even more so if the lenses have some type of treatment.
Although it may not seem like it, and it is quite common, you should not use tissues or napkins as you could scratch them.
