At Mari & Clay, we are all about making your pair of sunglasses last as long as possible. We have got some tips on how to look after your sunglasses!
HOW CAN I TAKE CARE OF MY SUNGLASSES?
- Always remove your sunglasses with both hands and never lay them with lenses facing down
- Avoid leaving your sunglasses in hot environments (such as your car), this may damage your lenses and frame
- Always store your sunglasses in the pouch and put them in back the case after use
HOW DO I CLEAN MY SUNGLASSES?
You can keep the sunglasses looking new by regularly cleaning them under warm water with mild detergent, wipe them dry them thoroughly with a smooth, lint-free Mari & Clay microfibre cloth. Make sure there are no dust particles on the lenses before wiping them.
You can also rinse the lenses with warm, soapy water regularly to get rid of the oil, or use the lens cleaners.
Be sure not to use chemical cleaners on your frames or lenses and please don't use your sweatshirt to wipe them clean either!
HOW TO ADJUST MY SUNGLASSES SO THEY FIT BETTER?
Over time, frames can alter slightly and bow outwards because of the pressure of your head against the temples. We recommend visiting a professional optician every three months for a “tune-up” to have your frames tightened up a bit and all screws checked for security. Most optometry practices provide this service free of charge.
We have created two video tutorials on how you can easily adjust your sunglasses at home using a hairdryer. Please be advised that DIY frame adjustment is at your own risk.
