If glasses are a part of your daily life, then you, like no one else, know how annoying small scratches on lenses are, which simply hinder seeing. And although the replacement of lenses is the best way out in this situation, we can not always afford to change them as often as we would like. Then rescue methods for removing minor scratches come to the rescue, and one of them will be described below.Joshua Newton / Unsplash
But first let us clarify what exactly you shouldn’t do if you have scratches on the glasses:
- You probably met tips on the use of toothpaste to remove minor scratches on the lenses. And although this method is effective, you should know that you should choose only non-abrasive, non-whitening, non-gel paste. Since this is a difficult task in itself, we offer a simpler way out of the situation, described just below.
- If the scratches are too strong, and now there is no possibility to change the lenses, then one of the exits is to remove the protective coating on the glasses (for example, anti-reflective). However, this is really an extreme case, which should be resorted to only at the very least. In addition, you risk even more damage to your glasses than scratches.
How to remove small scratches on the glasses, without resorting to toothpaste or remove the protective layer? Pretty simple:
1. First wipe the glasses with a microfiber cloth to completely remove dust and debris.LeeAnn Whittemore / The Manual
2. Then mix 1-2 tsp. baking soda with a little water to make a paste.LeeAnn Whittemore / The Manual
3. Apply the paste to the lenses using microfiber or cotton pad, gently and gently rubbing it into the surface.LeeAnn Whittemore / The Manual
4. After you have wiped the glasses well, rinse them under running water.LeeAnn Whittemore / The Manual
