Sunglasses 101: How To Clean Your Sunglasses

Anea Hill sunglasses are a luxurious investment, designed to help safeguard your eyes. But like any prized possession, proper care is essential to ensure they stay immaculate for years to come. This guide unveils a simple approach to maintaining, storing, and cleaning your sunglasses, packed with tips to keep them shining bright.

Clean your sunglasses

Even though your Anea Hills come with a handy lens cloth or a hard case, everyday wear can accumulate dust, fingerprints, and smudges. The key is to be gentle and avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage the lenses or frames. Here are our top five cleaning recommendations:

  • Embrace the Microfiber Magic: Anea Hill sunglasses come with a high-quality microfiber cloth for a reason! Microfiber's ultra-soft and lint-free properties make it ideal for gently wiping away dust and fingerprints without scratching the delicate lenses.

We offer an upgraded lens cloth with a double-finger pocket for a secure grip, minimizing the risk of leaving behind fingerprints. These innovative cloths can be purchased here: Anea Hill double-finger lens cloths.

Take your sunglass cleaning a step further!

  • When Water Works Wonders: For a deeper clean, especially after a beach trip or exposure to sweat, lukewarm water is your best friend. Simply rinse your sunglasses under a gentle stream of lukewarm water to remove any loose dirt or debris. Avoid hot water, as it can warp the frames or damage lens coatings.

  • Soap Up for Stubborn Stains: Sometimes, water just won't suffice cleaning your sunglasses. For tougher grime or makeup smudges, create a mild soapy solution with a drop of gentle dish soap (free of lotions or perfumes) and lukewarm water. Gently massage the solution onto the lenses and frames with your fingertips, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

What Not To Do!

  • Air Drying is Key: Once your sunglass are clean, resist the urge to grab a paper towel! Paper towels can leave scratches, so allow your sunglasses to air dry completely. Alternatively, use a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth to gently pat them dry.

  • Beware of the Sun's Heat: Sunglasses shield your eyes from the sun's rays, ironically, extreme heat can damage anything. Avoid leaving your sunglasses in direct sunlight for extended periods (we're talking days on end), especially in a hot car.

Storage Matters: A Safe Haven for Your Sunglasses

When your sunglasses aren't basking in the spotlight (on your face), proper storage is vital. Here's how to ensure they stay safe and sound:

  • Utilize the Anea Hill Case: The beautiful box your ANEA HILL's arrived in is more than just packaging; it's their protective haven. The sturdy case shields your sunglasses from scratches, dust, and accidental crushing.

  • Pouch Power: If you're on the go and don't have the case handy, a soft pouch designed specifically for sunglasses is a good alternative. Look for a pouch made from a soft, lint-free material.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure your ANEA HILL sunglasses stay looking flawless and protect your eyes in style for years to come. Shine on!
