Well me and my sister have both been wearing glasses since we were little and i've not yet found anything that will keep my glasses clean for more than about ten minutes.
It's a nightmare!! Sometimes i swear my glasses get so dirty i can see better without them!
Someone must know of a product or old wifes tale about keeping glasses clean. Help!!

if some magic subtance existed to keep things clean, wouldnt you think there would be other places that needed it more? the toilet? windows? etc

such is life, someone has to clean them

Are you using those fine cloths?

Alright alright, calm down!
It would just be handy to know because honestly it is so annoying when you have to wear glasses for everything and they're constantly getting dirty.

just like clothes

Have you tried Specsavers? They have a fine cloth that's specially for glasses, it costs about £4 if I remember correctly but does the trick, mine manage to stay clean for a while so don't need to keep cleaning them with this. Also they have most wipes which you can use to clean the glasses and it dries instantly, that costs £2 and works well too. I'm sure they have other products aswell.

Thanks
I'll give them a go.
I've used those cloths before but they don't really work in my own opinion.

I think it's called a Microfiber cloth the one I use, I'll agree though, alot of cloths don't work very well since the glasses get dusty straight away, but I've really not had any problems with my one since I got it, it seems to do the job for me.

I have OCDabout my glasses and i do clean them every 10 mins or so. Thye drive me mad. I use vision express's spray and a micro cloth. These are what i have found get them the cleanest.
My other said they are still spotless when i clean them again. So it would last longer than 10 mins for a normal person lol.

Why not do the same a racing drivers or people who wear sand goggles!

Have layers of film over your glasses, when they are dirty, just peel away the top layer and you have clean glasses below.

You can then have any number of layers allowing your glasses to remain clean all day!

Do this once and I'm sure the problem will stop very quickly due to the embarrassment factor!
