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!
- Empty Tissue Box
- Lens cleaning spray
- Lens cleaning wipe/cloth
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!
