How To Clean Your Sunglasses (Without Damaging Them)

Why Proper Cleaning is Essential

When it comes to performance eyewear, Tifosi Optics sunglasses are a top choice for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Designed to enhance your vision while providing the ultimate protection, our sunglasses need proper care to maintain their functionality and longevity. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to clean and care for your Tifosi Optics sunglasses.

Regular cleaning of your Tifosi Optics sunglasses not only keeps them looking new but also ensures optimal performance. Dirt, sweat, and oils from your skin can accumulate on the lenses and frames, potentially impairing your vision and causing long-term damage. By following these cleaning tips, you can prolong the life of your sunglasses and keep them in top condition.

Materials You’ll Need
  • Microfiber cleaning cloth (included with your Tifosi sunglasses)
  • Mild dish soap
  • Lukewarm water
  • Lens cleaning solution (optional)
  • Soft bristle brush or an old, soft toothbrush

1. Rinse with Lukewarm Water
Start by rinsing your sunglasses under lukewarm water. This helps remove dust and debris that could potentially scratch the lenses during the cleaning process. Make sure the water is not too hot, as high temperatures can damage the lens coatings.

2. Apply Mild Soap
Apply a small amount of mild dish soap to your fingers and gently rub it onto the lenses and frames. Avoid using soaps with lotions or harsh chemicals, as these can leave residues or damage the lenses.

3. Gently Clean the Lenses
Using your fingers, gently rub the lenses in a circular motion. Pay special attention to areas with smudges or fingerprints. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as this can scratch the lenses.

4. Clean the Frames
After cleaning the lenses, move on to the frames. Use the soapy water and your fingers to clean around the nose pads, earpieces, and hinges. For hard-to-reach areas, such as the nose pads or vents, use a soft bristle brush or an old, soft toothbrush to gently scrub away any buildup.

5. Rinse Thoroughly
Once you’ve cleaned both the lenses and frames, rinse the sunglasses thoroughly under lukewarm water to remove all soap residues. Any leftover soap can cause streaking or leave a film on the lenses.

6. Dry with a Microfiber Cloth
Gently shake off any excess water and use a microfiber cleaning cloth to dry the lenses and frames. Microfiber cloths are designed to be gentle and non-abrasive, reducing the risk of scratches. Avoid using paper towels, tissues, or your clothing, as these can contain fibers that may scratch the lenses.

7. Optional: Use Lens Cleaning Solution
For a final touch, you can use a lens cleaning solution specifically designed for eyewear. Spray a small amount on the lenses and wipe them clean with a microfiber cloth. This can help remove any remaining smudges and give your lenses a streak-free finish.

Additional Tips for Care

Store Properly:
Always store your Tifosi Optics sunglasses in the protective sunglass case when not in use. This prevents accidental damage and keeps them free from dust and debris.

Avoid Harsh Conditions:
Avoid exposing your sunglasses to extreme temperatures, such as leaving them in a hot car, as this can warp the frames or damage the lens coatings.

Regular Maintenance:
Perform regular maintenance by checking the screws and hinges. Tighten any loose screws with a small screwdriver to ensure your sunglasses remain in good condition.

Replace Worn Parts:
If the nose pads or earpieces become worn or damaged, replace them with new ones. At Tifosi Optics you can shop our small parts page for any lenses, nose pads and ear pads to keep your sunglasses performing at their best.

By following these cleaning and care tips, you can ensure that your Tifosi Optics sunglasses remain in excellent condition, providing you with clear vision and reliable protection for all your outdoor activities. Happy adventures!
