Hello upstyle.

Hope all you kind people are safe and


Today's project is a simple one.

Keeping our eye glasses clean without buying the eye glasses cleaning wipes

So here's my version.

Stick with me if you want crystal clear glasses.

Below are my dirty eye glasses

Best isopropyl alcohol!

Make your own glasses cleaning wipes with this 99% pure isopropyl alcohol that Amazon reviewers swear by!

My secret ingredient is isopropyl alcohol.

It's what is used in the pads. I buy.

So I will try to create this.

Below is a little container I reuse.

A toilet roll. Thick toilet roll works well.

Roll some of the tube around your finger like below

Fit it inside the little container

Cut of the tissue at the top of the container.

Take it out

Now use a teaspoon of isopropyl alcohol and put into the container

Add the tissue to the container

Like so. t

Find he middle of the tissue and give a little pull.

This is where you will get your wipe from.

Place the lid back on

Turn it upside down

Letting the isopropyl soak through out the tissue

Let's try

Below I get a wipe and try it out

Look how clean these look

I'm surprised and never buying wipes again.

A must try

Easy DIY Eye glasses cleaner

A must try if you have some isopropyl alcohol.

And if you buy the wipes this will save money.

Thanks for reading

    I was told by an optometrist that using kleenex or toilet paper on lenses is very hard on them. It’s like sandpaper on the lenses

      I worked as an apprentice optician for years. I was told that Kleenex brand tissues are the ONLY tissues that don't contain wood fibers. So, if you are going to use a tissue on your glasses, use only Kleenex brand. Don't use the type that contains lotion, though. They will just smear your lenses. A soft, cotton towel, like a dish towel, is always best.

      Also, NEVER use alcohol on your lenes if they have an Anti-Reflective (AR) coating. Alcohol can strip the coating. Just remember not to use any of the 3 A's when it comes to cleaning your glasses - Never use Alcohol, Acetone or Ammonia on your lenses. Hope that helps!
