Follow mfg. instructions. For the Sony TDG-BR100/BR50 "Wipe gently with a soft cloth. Stubborn stains (zombie gore flying off the screen, for instance) may be removed with a cloth slightly moistened with a solution of mild soap and water. If using a chemically pretreated cloth, be sure to follow the directions provided on the package. Never use strong solvents such as a thinner, alchohol or benzine for cleaning."

Default Use this also as a guide

In Astronomy, the recommendation is clean as little as possible, and only when your lenses, or mirrors are really dirty, so some people may only clean their mirrors, or lenses, once a year, or leave even longer.

The idea is everytime you clean a lens, or mirror, you do microscopic damage each time you clean them, so clean as less as possible is the story.

Same would apply to 3D classes, you run the risk of damage each time you clean them, better off keeping them in the case when not used, and only clean when you really notice they are dirty and effecting how clear the view is, else leave them.

But I find ordinary warm soapy water works well and no streaking, use this method on my tv's and lcd screens works well, and gently wipe dry with soft clean cloth, with no real pressure until dry.

single sided clean only and only when needed

i.e. do not pinch/press glasses from both sides when cleaning as this can damage them

I use the little cloth thing that came with the glasses, but it just seems to move the smudges around.

I take ultimate care of these, but they still get smudges/foggy occasionally. Is water still the best method, or is there a spray solution that works....

I feel like I wanna windex these suckers!

Wonder why that information is so deeply buried and not common knowledge. I read that some where myself and have been doing it every since. That's for active glasses. I want to go passive now and am looking into 4k sets. No special care, no batteries, no regrets for someone sitting on them (I lost a pair to that). I have a ton of passive glasses from movie theaters.

Question How do you clean active shutter glasses?

Clean oil free (from hands and any cleaning chemicals) micro fiber and purified water. Dab the rag in the water.

It didn't say why, but Samsung recommended cleaning one side at a time. In other words, don't fold rag over front and back of lens and rub both at same time as folks do with normal eye glasses. Thar bit of info was buried in some Samsung document I stumbled upon a year or so ago.

I don't have a 3D TV but for my Samsung TV I use a spray bottle and get the microfiber cloth damp and then clean my screen. I never ever spray the screen, for cleaning glasses I would never ever spray the active glasses because they have electronic elements in them.

Default clean glasses?

How do you guys clean your glasses?
I have been running under water and dry with tissue.
But even once they are clean- they get smudges or fogged on the edges that seem to cause a glare. (distracting)

There is a little difference between cleaning active glasses and passive. I use a little soap with slow low volume running water. With active glasses you have to be very careful with the water and can only wipe one side (front or back) of the glasses at a time. Passive glasses no worry about water and you can do both sides at the same time.

Fogging should go away on its on. There are glass fluids that can help reduce fogging if you find it a big problem.

ps: I have active glasses on my older Samsung 3d's and Passive on my LG OLED.

I find cleaning a royal pain too. I use a drop or two of clear soap...scrub them up with my fingers and then run under water...passive type. Sometimes I have to repeat several times. I dry them with soft paper towels.
