Just like you do with your hands, experts say that cleaning your glasses regularly with soap and water is your best defense against germs that cause COVID-19.
The first step to stop the spread of dangerous germs starts right when you come back from running errands or any other activity outside of your house. “Every time I walk in my home, the first thing I do is… wash my hands and then wash my glasses,” Dr. Horn said.
Dry off the glasses with a washcloth instead of using paper towels—which often leaves scratches—or blowing on your frames since that can spread bacteria, Dr. Horn noted. Lastly, don’t forget to also wash your glasses periodically throughout the day for safe measure to avoid any buildup of germs.
