I wear glasses, and cleaning them with the store bought lens cleaner can get spendy at $12 a bottle. (I tend to use it on other things as well...)
So after buying a bottle of it, I started making my own. It works just the same, if not better!
It also works great for cleaning mirrors, glass, lcd screens, tv screens pretty much anything you can get away with - and is made with items usually found in the home.
On with the show!
Step 1: ...What You Will Need...
What you will need is...
- Isopropyl Alcohol 70%.
- Spray Bottle. (I reuse the bottle from the store bought stuff.)
I use filtered water for my mix, in the picture is a Brita Filter Pitcher, it cost a few dollars more than a new bottle of lens cleaner and comes with a filter! (Plus, you can drink the water!)
Step 2: ...Mixing...
For mixing the solution,
- 60% Isopropyl Alcohol
- 40% Water
This is far from rocket science, just add the ingredients into the spray bottle in roughly these amounts.
Step 3: ...Shake It Up!
Take your spray bottle, shake it up until you feel it's all mixed well and put it to work!
Until next time...
