10 Tips to Clean and Protect Your Sustainable Sunglasses

Since so many of Nomad Eyewear’s sustainable sunglasses can float in water, it only makes sense that you’d like to wear them to the lake or the beach, or even while SUPing. With all that water spray (not to mention possible greasy fingers from snacks and sunscreen), it’s only to be expected that your glasses may smudge or get banged around. When you keep your sustainable sunglasses clean and protected, they will last you for years. Here are the 10 best tips to help you do exactly that!

Cleaning Your Sustainable Sunglasses

All of Nomad Eyewear’s eco-friendly sunglasses are made from 100% recycled plastic. When you keep them clean and well protected, they will last much longer, and you will get the most mileage possible out of them. That’s great news for both you and the planet!

1. Rinse your plastic sunglasses in lukewarm water once a day. Be sure your hands are clean when you do so. This means you should not have any food or oils on your hands when handling your glasses. Dry the sunglasses gently after washing with a microfibre cloth.

2. If the lenses are especially gunky, apply a small amount of dish soap when you clean them. Avoid using soaps that contain oil, which can smudge or damage your lenses.

3. Always use a clean cloth, such as a rag or towel, to wipe your sunglass lenses. Avoid using paper towels, which will only smudge your glasses more. If you do not have a rag, use your finger instead of paper products.

4. Choose the softest cloths you can, and try to avoid textured cloth that can smudge your lenses. We also recommend you avoid cleaning your plastic sunglasses on your shirt when possible.

5. Be sure to rinse your sunglasses completely before you dry them. If you leave them set aside to dry while there is still soap on them, it may cause them to smudge even further than before.

6. Got dust? Try blowing gently on your glasses to send it away. Do not blow any sand and dirt as this can scratch the lens.

Protecting Your Sustainable Sunglasses

7. If your sustainable sunglasses were left outside on a cold day, never pour hot water on them. Adding hot water to cold lenses may cause them to crack. Before rinsing off your glasses, wait for your sunglasses to warm to room temperature.

8. When your lenses are wet, dry them quickly (when it’s appropriate). Obviously, you can’t expect your sustainable sunglasses to remain dry while you’re whitewater rafting and being tossed around, but imagine that you chose to wear your sunglasses outside on a snowy day to shield your eyes from bright snowbanks. If you leave damp sunglasses outside on a day like this, it may cause the water to freeze on your lenses. This could possibly cause them to crack.

9. Taking your eco-friendly sunglasses to the lake for a little fun in the sun? You may want to invest in a pair of floating sunglassesthat will be easy to find if they fall off your head. Also consider investing in a strap for your sunglasses that can hang around your neck. This is a great way to ensure your sunglasses don’t get lost. Be cautious, however, as your sunglasses may swing, bang against things, or catch on branches while you are out and about.

10. Store them in a protective case when you aren’t wearing your sustainable sunglasses. This is the best way to keep them safe long-term.

Of course, what’s the point of owning stylish, sustainable sunglasses if you never wear them? Don’t be afraid to bring yours on all your trips outdoors. Taking proper care of your plastic sunglasses will help them to stay in mint condition, and it only takes a few minutes out of your day to rinse and dry them when you return indoors.
