Cleaning Station

Introduction: Cleaning Station

Make an easy cleaning station for your glasses. This cleaning station is inspired by a product that I found in my household, which is a cleaning station designed to spray and clean your glasses. Follow these simple instructions to make your own with materials that you probably have in your household!

Supplies

- Empty Tissue Box

- Cardboard

- Lens cleaning spray

- Lens cleaning wipe/cloth

- Tape/Glue

- Scissors

- Glasses

- Paper

Step 1: Cut the Cardboard to Fit Tissue Box and Glasses

First, mark the length and width of the tissue on the cardboard. Make sure the dimensions of the cardboard as similar to those of the tissue box. Next, make sure that the length of each of the cardboard pieces is the same.

Now move on to the largest piece of cardboard. Measure the length between both the tips of the glasses. Next, make two holes on the wider piece of cardboard using the same length. Test to see if your glasses fit into the whole and adjust accordingly.

Step 2: Make Space in the Tissue Box

Cut the cardboard that's inside the tissue box to make space for your lens cleaning spray.

Step 3: Cover the Cardboard in Paper

To give the cleaning station a cleaner look, cover the cardboard in paper, draw on it, paint, etc. The goal here is to make the pieces of cardboard look cleaner than it would look with the cardboard.

Step 4: Put the Pieces Together

Tape/Glue the cardboard pieces covered in paper onto the sides of the tissue box that match its dimensions. Don’t only tape/glue the cardboard to the tissue box, but also to each other to make sure the cardboard is extra secure.

Step 5: Add a Lens-Cleaning Wipe

On the back of the cleaning station, tape a lens-cleaning wipe. Make sure that the wipe is taped up so that it can fold onto the wider piece of cardboard into the cleaning station. This can help it wipe the glasses that are placed in this exact same location.

Step 6: Test and Enjoy!

To test the cleaning station, place your lens-cleaning spray into the opening of the tissue box. Place the rims of your glasses into the holes, securing your glasses. Now test by spraying the lens-cleaning spray on your secured glasses. Then wipe with the lens-cleaning wipe that folds onto the station. Use this cleaning station daily to clean your glasses! Share your creation with others and enjoy!

    Hi! I think this would be really useful for people who wear glasses, and how you reused tissue box! One suggestion that I would like to give is to include the dimensions roughly would be helpful for others. However, your work looks amazing!

    hi Diya I really like what you did but I wouldn't understand how this would be useful because I don't have glasses also it would have been nice if you painted it or colored it.

    Hi Diya,
    I like that the materials are environment-friendly as we don't need to buy something in the store to follow your project. We can recycle the materials we have at home to make your product. The product you made seems to be really creative as I've never thought to make this kind of project. Great work!

    Hi, Diya!
    I really interested in your project because I started to wear Bluelight grass recently, and it looks useful to me. Also, your instructions are clear as detailed, and you used material which the things we can easily get at everyone's home. Great work !!
