With 3 of us wearing glasses at home we use a fair bit of eyeglass cleaner on a daily basis. The last bottle I purchased cost $20 and when it was down to its last drops I thought surely I can find a DIY alternative. After much research and playing with a few recipes, I found the perfect 3 basic ingredient DIY which is effective and gentle enough to be used on any mirror or glass. You could also add a few drops of lavender essential oil to the mix as it is one the best naturally scented oils containing strong antimicrobial properties.
What you will need
- ½ Water
- ½ Rubbing Alcohol
- A few drops of dishwashing detergent
How to do it
Fill any size spray bottle with the above ingredients and shake the solution. After spraying your eyeglass lenses, wipe gently with a lint free cloth. There you have it, a simple cost-effective DIY that will leave your glasses squeaky clean and streak-free.
Let me know if you will make this do-it-yourself recipe. Enjoy!

Cool, very clever
will try it soon 🙂
Pure genius, thank-you! I just got new glasses last week, and I’m already struggling to keep the lenses clean! I always used washing up liquid and water, but I’ve found it streaks, so fingers crossed that the rubbing alcohol is the magic solution for streak free lenses.
You’re welcome! Yes equal parts water and rubbing alcohol with a few drops of washing up liquid will do the trick 🙂
Wow! I will share this to my husband as he wears glasses and often complains about the dust on his lenses. 🙂
Thank you very much 🙂
