I’ve worn glasses since I was three years old, so when I say I’ve dealt with any and every issue a bespectacled person can encounter, I’m not making it up.
From misplacing them in the oddest place to having them chewed apart by a dog, I’ve been there. Don’t trust me? Ask Diply. Anyways, here’s a list of some of the most useful hacks I’ve come across over the years. Don your eyeglasses, fellow bespectacled persons, and let’s begin this lesson. Ahem.
1. Stop groping for your glasses in the dark
You’ve knocked your glasses under the bed while trying to find them in the dark? Who hasn’t. But here’s a quick fix – apply some glow-in-the-dark paint or tape and next time you’ll find them. Grope-free.
2. Keep your frames from slipping down your nose with eyeshadow primer
So here’s the deal. Primer helps keep eyeshadow from sliding into the creases of your eyelids, so it’s this anti-sliding thing. If you dab a bit on the sides of your nose, it can also keep your frames in place. Score.
3. Remove fine scratches from your lenses with baking soda and car wax
ALWAYS read the warnings first! With that out of the way, clean your lenses thoroughly and then scrub with a baking soda paste. Lastly, buff with car wax to shine them up.
4. An easier solution for spot removal
Who would’ve guessed? Plain white toothpaste can also remove minor scratches from plastic lenses. It’s as easy as rubbing some on with your fingers and then rinse. And baking soda toothpaste works even better!
5. Use shaving cream to prevent fogging
Rub some shaving cream onto the surface of your glasses and then carefully wipe it off. This will leave a light coating that will stop your lenses from getting foggy. Reapply when the effect starts to wear off.
