5 Tips to keep your shades scratch-free

How often do we have to let go of wearing our favourite pair of shades due to a scratch? It is critical to take care of your sunglasses as much as you take care of your jewellery. As an accessory, it becomes a part of your personality that needs preserving with love and care. Check out these 5 tips that you can use to keep your shades scratch-free.


1.Use two hands to take glasses on and off
Using both hands will evenly distribute the force between both sides of your glasses. This will prevent one side from wearing out faster than the other, or any twisting or breakages of your frame.


2.Place glasses facing upwards
Keeping your lenses off surfaces like hard tables will prevent them from grazing or scratching.


3.Use lens cleaner to clean lenses
Sometimes when your lenses become oily, simply polishing them with a lens cloth isn’t enough to clean them, especially if you have been to the beach. Lens cleaner spray acts as a ‘soap’ to give your lenses a thorough clean. Alternatively, you can use cold water and a drop of liquid soap. Just make sure to dry all joints, nose pads and screws to prevent corrosion!


4.Never use your shirt or tissue paper to clean lenses
Your lens polishing cloth is made for just that, polishing lenses! The microfibre material buffs the lenses without scratching. Dry tissue paper or your clothing materials are a lot coarser and can leave fine scratches on your lenses.

5.Never put glasses on the chair, bed or floor
Although it can be convenient to momentarily set your glasses down next to you, this puts them at risk of being sat or stepped on! If possible, find a table, shelf or glasses case to store your glasses.
