Review: Lenzies Lens Cleaner Wipes
Modern TV screens (and often the surrounding bezels), glasses, smartphone screens, laptop screens, mirrors, etc., all need to be cleaned in very specific ways to avoid damage. You simply can’t use the old paper towel and Windex method. There are two basic solutions available for today’s screens and glasses, and that’s microfiber cloths and pre-moistened wipes like the Lenzies Pre-Moistened Lens Wipes.
I’m a big fan of microfiber cloths, but sometimes a bit more is needed. That’s where something like the Lenzies Pre-Moistened Lens Wipes come in handy. They’re individually wrapped for easy portability and are already pre-moistened with isopropyl alcohol (IUPAC name 2-propanol), so you don’t need to worry about how or what to spray your screen or glasses with.
The Lenzies Pre-Moistened Lens Wipes unfold to a generous 5″ x 6″ and are extremely moist coming out of their wrapper. Unfortunately, it’s this extreme moisture that seems to represent problems on certain screen and glass types. I’ve found that no matter how I used these wipes in those instances, they leave streaks; having to follow-up with the aforementioned dry microfiber cloth really shouldn’t be a step in the process to total cleanliness. In contrast, when using Zeiss-brand wipes, I’ve had been far fewer instances of having to go over its wet cleaning. Perhaps it’s the Zeiss brand’s addition of eythanol in the formula that helps keep the isopropyl alcohol in check.
While the Lenzies Pre-Moistened Lens Wipes represent a decent value with 200 wipes in the package, as well as a little travel pack case for 10 wipes for when you want to take more than one or two on the go, the performance has disappointed in my testing. With that said, the company does offer a no questions asked, full refund, so if you need something like this, it still might be worth taking a chance on to see if the results with your particular screens or glasses are better.
