  1. 1

    Inspect the lenses carefully for dirt or grit. Rinse them with clean water, gently removing dirt.

  2. 2

    Wipe the lenses in a side-to-side motion with an eyeglass cleaning cloth. Be sure to wipe the entire surface of each lens with clean areas of the cloth. Allow the Ray-Bans to dry completely.

  3. 3

    Inspect the lenses for any smudges. Make a solution of clean, warm water with a drop or two of mild dish soap.

  4. 4

    Dip the glasses in the solution. Rub the entire surface delicately with the cleaning cloth, starting with the smudges on the lenses. Fold the frames closed, cleaning the hinges.

  5. 5

    Inspect the hinges and nose pieces carefully for grimy build-up. If necessary, unscrew the hinges and nose pieces with a repair kit, clean, and put everything back together.

  6. 6

    Rinse the glasses with clean water. Wipe the entire surface with a clean, dry cleaning cloth, starting with the lenses. Allow the glasses to completely dry.

  7. 7

    Buff any spots or fingerprints with a clean section of the cloth.

Tips and warnings

  • Clean your Ray-Bans at least once per month to keep build-up to a minimum.
  • Never clean your Ray-Bans with a dirty cloth or wipe them while the lenses have visible dirt. Doing so will easily scratch the lenses, which may be permanent.
  • Never use household chemicals or glass cleaner not specifically designed for sunglasses as they may damage the coating.
