I read where the active glasses are very sensitive due to multiple lenses. Not to put pressure cleaning both sides at one time.

I use the cloth provided and do not apply any liquid at all. If there is a smudge, I blow breath on it beforehand before wiping but that's the extent of it for me.

Over time any pair of glasses gets dirty. Especially if you have guests using them. Not to mention kids.

But even once they are clean- they get smudges or fogged on the edges that seem to cause a glare. (distracting)
For Active LCD glasses, LCD Screen Cleaner such as
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/insigni...?skuId=8958032

There are others of the same type.

NEVER NEVER NEVER rub both sides of the glasses at the same time. Always clean one side and then the other. Very Gently !

Yep. You have to be careful because there are three layers in Active 3d Glasses. The one in the middle is the one that switches on and off. You must not be careless and damage it. Pressure from either of the other two surfaces will do that.

No paper towels! Wood fiber in the paper will scratch plastic. Yes, even blotting.
I use the same stuff I clean the screen (Clean Screen gel spray)with, and a microfiber cloth. Spray on the cloth when cleaning active glasses.

I just use lens wipes, but I rarely clean them.

I don't have a 3D TV but I would would use a microfiber cloth and hot water spayed onto a cloth with a sprayer.

Passive glasses...I use dishwashing liquid, hot water and a towel to dry them. Do this with all my glasses and the lens look like new, even years later. Paper towels and tissues are a big no-no (according to my optician.)

Some of my xpand active glasses took on a lot of dust. OK to wipe it off with microfiber cloth? Hopefully no need for water or anything just the cloth. Or is this not the right type of cloth to use?

Hi projector Art,

Active glasses could be damaged quite easily due to multiple lense layering. Do not use liquid because they are battery operated and this can damage the wiring.

And do not apply undue pressure on the cloth by cleaning both sides at one time.

I use the cloth provided and gently wipe each side individually. One can breath on the lense beforehand to help eliminate smudges when gently wiping.

Joe

If it is just dust, then microfiber cloth is the best to clean it off with.

If you have fingerprints or other gunk, you will have to clean it differently.
Go to Best Buy or some other electronics store and buy LCD cleaner. It is a liquid bottle with a cloth. Apply the liquid to the cloth (never to the glasses) and use that to clean the lenses. NEVER SQUEEZE THE LENS BETWEEN FINGERS OR ANYTHING ELSE
Use very gentle pressure with fingers on cloth and one side only of the lens at a time. Repeat if needed wetting another part of the cloth.
