Fairy Liquid for your lenses....
on 20 May 2012
This TRULY is one of those rare products where you wonder how on earth you coped without it. Of decent, handkerchief size, so you can grip it and use it properly, unlike small ones you drop, the microfibre material cuts through grease on your lenses like Fairy Liquid does for your dishes. It's also soft enough to never risk harming a lens' surface.
It does lose its effectiveness after a while and washing it brings it back to life. HOWEVER, the colour, actually a maroon rather than the red shown, on all versions I've seen, runs like mad, so DON'T put it in your washing machine with anything else. I just put it in a small plastic food container and warm water with a sprinkle of washing powder and rinse it through by hand.
The local camera shop I bought mine from also does servicing and minor equipment repairs. They use these Sigma cloths all day and every day, not because they're paid to endorse them, but because they absolutely work.
Buy one! Stick it in your gadget bag, or pocket even and never have a dirty lens/viewfinder/screen/filter again. (Great also for spectacles, too - I also use another one for cleaning fingerprints from CDs/DVDs).
