5 Tips to Properly Care for your Sunglasses

Sunglasses are an essential accessory for most people. The ideal way to protect yourself from UV radiation, giving you an impressive look. But, if you don't take care of your sunglasses, they can get scratched, warped, bent and broken. To keep your glasses looking new for longer, here's a quick rundown on how to care for your sunglasses. A few simple tips that go a long way in ensuring maximum lifespan.

1. Keep them in a case

Most good sunglass brands either ship their glasses in a case or give you the option to purchase a quality case as an extra. Cases obviously offer the best protection, especially when you put your glasses in the bottom of a bag with keys, phones and other items that could scratch or distort your glasses.  

2. Do not place the sunglasses on the top of your head

The sun has gone behind the clouds, you've gone indoors, or you want to take a closer look at the photo your friend just took. There are many reasons to take off your sunglasses during the day. The easy way is to simply pick them up and place them over your head. However, over time this stretches the frames, stresses the arm pins, and generally bends the frames of your glasses. Over time your glasses will slide off your face as if they are too big. An ideal solution is to buy a chain to combine with your glasses so that you can take them off without fear at any time of the day and at the same time upgrade your style. You can still hang them on your shirt collar or store them safely in a case.  

3. Clean the sunglasses with a soft cloth  

We all do it. We clean our sunglasses with our t-shirts. Depending on how clean that material is and how soft or rough it is, you could be doing more harm than good - especially over time. You can easily carry a soft cloth in your sunglasses case for those moments when you need a little shine. Again, most good brands of glasses will include a cloth when you receive your new glasses.  

4. Choose premium sunglasses that don't scratch easily 

Everyday life is demanding. You can't always be alert, and eventually your glasses will take a few knocks, get stuck on some sand, or maybe even sit on a daydream. The best way to make sure your sunglasses last is to get them made from quality materials.  

5. Avoid putting your sunglasses on the car dashboard  

Cars can get very hot in the sun and the dashboard is a hot surface directly under the sun's glare. Plastic frames will warp at the first sign of rising temperatures. Even the best quality frames will bend over time if they are constantly exposed to heat. Much better to keep your glasses safely in a compartment in the center console, or at worst, place them in the glove box of your car.   

In summary, taking care of your sunglasses by keeping them in a case, cleaning the lenses with a soft cloth (not your t-shirt) and pairing them with a stylish chain is the start of keeping your glasses looking fresh and new for as long as possible!
