I just recently got glasses and thought the hardest part about wearing them would be getting used to the way I looked in them. But after wearing them for a week something else started bothering me more -- the smudges and fuzzies that started collecting. I tried using the tiny microfiber cloth the eye wear place gave me, but it didn’t do much for the smudges so I took to Pinterest.

I found a bunch of posts saying to mix water and vinegar, and a bunch saying to mix water and rubbing alcohol. Then I found one where you mix all three together and figured I’d give that one a go.

I took a little spray bottle I got in the travel section of Target and filled it 1/3 with water, 1/3 with rubbing alcohol and 1/3 with white vinegar. I shook it up and used it with the small microfiber cloth that came with my glasses. It worked perfectly! I sprayed both sides, wiped them off and the glasses looked like new.

Pinterest do or don’t? These three common household ingredients are a great way to clean your glasses. I thought the vinegar or the alcohol might be strong-smelling but the two seem to cancel each other out, and any smell the mixture does have disappears pretty fast. I now find myself cleaning my glasses at least once, but usually twice a day with this stuff, so it’s good the ingredients are so cheap!
