How to take care of your glasses
Take care of your Balmain glasses, and they’ll last you a long time. We recommend regular cleaning with gentle soap and lukewarm water. You’ll want to opt for a cleaning solution without any harsh chemicals. Otherwise, your lenses may warp and get damaged. Pay close attention to the rims, hinges and nose bridges - anywhere where grime and germs can get trapped. For cleaning your glasses on the go, a lens cleaning solution in a spray bottle is a practical option that you can keep in your bag. Remove smudges and marks with a soft microfibre cloth, as opposed to the end of your shirt or other textiles. These can be a bit too rough and cause accidental scratches. And lastly, keep your Balmain glasses in their case when not worn. This is an easy way to protect them from dust, as well as accidental drops and bumps.
