Cleaning the lenses of your Bluetooth glasses should be part of your daily routine, this is especially true if you have prescription lenses. While this may sound like a drag, it will only take you 20 seconds.

What to avoid when cleaning glasses
If you wear glasses, you know that it's important to keep them clean. Not only do they look better when they're polished and shiny, but they also perform better and last longer. However, there are a lot of wrong ways to clean your glasses - so here are the right ways!
First, always use a gentle cleanser that is designed for eyeglasses. Avoid harsh detergents, acetone, or scouring pads, which can scratch the lenses. Also, saliva isn’t a cleaning solution; it smudges the lenses and allows bacteria to contaminate your glasses.
Second, never put your glasses in the dishwasher. The high heat and strong detergents can damage the frames and lenses. It will also damage the speakers embedded in the arms.
Third, be careful not to get moisture inside the frames while cleaning them. This can cause the lens to fog. There are plenty of tips and tricks for defogging your glasses.
The best way to store glasses
It can be tough to know the best way to store glasses. Some people might just toss them in a drawer, while others might invest in a fancy storage case. But when it comes to Bluetooth glasses, the best way to store them is in a flat-folding case for ultimate portability and protection.
When you purchase a pair of Lucyd glasses, you’ll receive a flat-folding case, and cleaning cloth. These accessories will keep your glasses free from scratches and damage and will add an extra protective layer if you happen to drop your glasses.
