    I've found that the best thing for lens cleaning is an old cotton handkerchief that has been washed so many times that it'd cloud-soft. First remove any grit with a gentle blast of air, then breath onto the lens surface so that it mists up. Then wipe gently with a scrunched up handkerchief.

    In more demanding cases, use a squirt of Calotherm fluid bought from an optician.

    Better still keep yor lenses clean by fitting a UV filter.

    I used to use a similar type of micro fiber cloth to clean my lenses, but found that over time it wore away at my protective coating on the lens, now I used specialized special cleaning tissues & a blower if its just surface dust i need to remove.

    It does! The result is, they look like Nikon lenses.

    Elf & Safety gone mad again. Isopropanol is a mild solvent & can dissolve the natural fats on the skin causing dryness. In a very few extreme cases it can cause itching & dermatitis with prolonged contact. The length of time you would be handling the wipes should not be a problem unless your skin is extemely sensitive.
