Eyeglass cleaner: just let it go!

You have waited all year, here it is —the ski season! It is time to let go, because in a few days, you will be at the top of the ski slopes to be one with snow and sky!

And you already see yourself with your beautiful coat and, more importantly, the coolest sunglasses ever!

However, you have already forgotten the problem of steam on your glasses, as you do every year.

But this year, you are not going back to your old ways:  you are letting go of the eyeglass cleaner. You just couldn’t hold onto it any longer, as its manufacture pollutes air and water. So no more cleaning spray for your glasses. It is shipped over the world and just ends up in the trash (when it’s not in the middle of the ski trail!).

You are probably wondering: “Okay but how will I see in the light of day?

Put your skis aside and let me explain to you: you just need to scrub the glass on both sides with a dry soap, then wipe it with a soft cloth until you have no trace.

It obviously works with a ski mask, summer glasses, and ophthalmic glasses as well.

Now that your glasses are cleaned, just let’s go skiing: the cold will not bother you anymore!

A tip shared by Gilles


As long you do not buy any eyeglass cleaner for skiing or reading, you can save approximately:

  • 15.6 fl. oz / 460 ml of oil (bottle manufacturing and shipping)
  • 105 kW of power (bottle manufacturing)
  • 6.87 gallons / 26 liters of water (oil extraction)
  • 10.8 oz. / 306 g of CO2 equivalent (power production, oil extraction, and shipping)
  • 72.1 ft2 / 6.7 m2 ecological footprint (virtual forest required to absorb CO2 emissions)
  • 6 to 15 US Dollars / 3 to 10 euros
