I am crazy anal about all my lenses. I carry an oakley cleaning kit with me. Before those were released I used hot running water to remove debris and gunk and them used a VERY soft baby cloth. Finally I would used the micro bag for finishing toughes. Then examine the lenses for an hour and start all over again because while examining I would touch the lens leaving a greasy mark.
Usually took 2 hours and lots of laughing by my wife, oh crap......I am late for my appointment with the OCD specialist! LOL

hey woody. Im now happy to know that Im not the only one here with OCD hahaha! everyday I pick a different pair to wear. At the end of the day, it takes me about 30 minutes to wipe that pair down with a damn warm cloth on the frame and the microbag on the lenses before I even put it back where it belongs. I was the same with my guns before after shooting but those took hours and yes, just like u, my wife (at the time) laughed at me as well :-)

actually I find my rubys look a lot redder if I spray normal lens cleaner and give them a polish using a kodak soft microfibre cloth (both available from most opticians). I also find on my juliets that I can't get to the very edge of the lenses so I occasionally get my T6 out and remove the lenses and polish them that way

Chester, we must be related. My hunting buddies all laugh at me because at the end of every day I wipe and polish my guns......knowing the next day brings more dirt and debris. LOL

How about cleaning the microfiber cloths/bags? You're basically transferring all the oil/crap from the lenses to the bag. Eventually, I'd imagine, the bag'd get pretty bad & you'd end up transferring back all that crud to your lenses.

So, how do you clean the bag? Can you throw it in the laundry?

I wash them in the sink with liquid dish soap and hot water. Rinse them with clean hot water and air dry. This always works very well for me.

actually, u can try using one of the camera lens cleaning kit. i bought one for my camera and it worked wonderfully on the oakleys. it's the pen type cleaning kit. :D

forgot to add: use an air blower to remove dust first.

I use a large suede laptop microfibre cloth insted of the Microfiber bag. Its softer and cleans better than the bag

Bag stays on pocket when youre not using the sunglasess...dirt/dust stick from pocket to bag...will you clean your lenses with that? ...hehehe

So i guess it best to always use NEW microfibre colths hehehe!

I have 4 designated goggle bags I use to wipe my glasses with. I alternate them 2 at a time. I stick my hands in the bags so I wont touch the glasses at all when cleaning. Then i wash them with liquid dish soap in the sink once a month lol! ( like what woody does ) :-D

When time permits I usually pop the lenses out. Last night for instance I popped the lenses out of both my Radars and used foaming soap. It's very mild and the foaming is perfect for keeping large gobs of soap from collecting on the frame and lense. Rub lightly, rinse with water, and shake off as much water as possible. After that I take a cotton cloth and lightly dab off any remaining water off the lense (note I said Dab, not wipe, wiping may scratch the lenses) It comes out perfect everytime.

I have been using filtered water and a micro fiber cloth on the lens and occasionally diluted Dawn dishwashing liquid on the frames only. Never a problem.
