I have tried many eyeglass cleaning cloths and have never been happy with any of them.
Some worked ok. Some were terrible.
I had one that was pretty good but it was tiny.
Well my friends, I have found a new microfiber eyeglass cleaning cloth that is the best I have tried.
The Problem With Most Eyeglass Cleaning Cloths
The problem I always have is that either the cloth leaves streaks on my lenses or it leaves tiny little lint particles that tend to blur my view. I found a microfiber cloth that was meant for LCD televisions and it worked pretty well. It still left a little lint and some minor streaks but it was the best I could find. I just lived with it.
A Microfiber Discovery
One day I was in the dollar store and I noticed a glass-cleaning microfiber cloth that was for auto glass. It looked more like a polyester cloth instead of a fuzzy felt-like microfiber cloth.
I bought one and to my surprise, it worked better than any of my “fuzzy” microfiber cloths. It was my new favorite eyeglass cleaning cloth !
A Bigger Microfiber Discovery!
I was working on the formula for my alcohol-free eyeglass cleaner and I noticed that my auto-glass microfiber cloth was not working as well with the alcohol-free solution as it did with the alcohol cleaner. I needed a better cloth.
I got back on the internet and did some more research to find the best microfiber cleaning cloth. I knew that the extra-fine weave of the auto glass cloth was the reason it performed as well as it did. With that in mind, I then stumbled upon this ultra-fine microfiber cleaning cloth.
This cloth looked like it had an extremely fine weave, almost like satin.
I bought some of these cloths and I can report that they do indeed live up to the high praise given by the many people that have bought them.
I prefer the large 16×16 microfiber cleaning cloths. The larger size makes it easier for me to clean my reading glasses. I also use them for cleaning my LCD/LED TV screens, CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, and also my home-theater projector lens.
A Comparison With Other Microfiber Cloths
This first photo shows a standard microfiber eyeglass cloth next to the ultra-fine microfiber cloth. In this close up, you can see that the standard cloth looks like a shag carpet compared to the tight micro-weave of the ultra-fine cloth.
The second photo shows the auto-glass microfiber cloth, the standard eyeglass cloth, and the ultra-fine microfiber cloth. Notice that the auto-glass cloth has a zigzag weave. This helps it to clean glass better. The standard cloth doesn’t have a patterned weave. Again, it is much like a shag carpet, just in miniature.
But notice the ultra-fine microfiber cloth. It has an organized weave, but it is much smaller than the auto-glass cloth. I believe this is one of the reasons that it performs as well as it does on eyeglasses and lenses and makes it the best microfiber cleaning cloth.
