I found this at the Samsung site:

"The proper way to clean the 3D glasses is one lens at-a-time. It is not advisable to clean them in the same way that you would clean regular glasses (one finger on each lens), as it could damage the glasses. Do not clean both sides (front and back) at the same time as this will damage the glasses.

3D glasses actually have 2 screens in each lens, and putting pressure on both sides at the same time will squeeze the 2 lenses together, causing them to come in contact with each other and distort 3D viewing. When cleaning, use a clean, microfiber cloth and clean one side first, then then other. Do not clean both sides of the lens together.

Do not use any chemicals containing alcohol, solvents, or surfactant. Do not use any chemicals such as wax, benzene, thinner, mosquito repellant, lubricant, or cleaners. These may result in discoloration or cracks on the glasses surface and cause or cause the indication labels to peel off. Do not spray any cleaning liquid directly onto the glasses."

Obviously you have to be very careful when you attempt to clean these glasses. Are they really that fragile?

Treat them as if you are cleaning two LCD HDTVs sandwiched next to each other with 1mm separation...

Thanks for the info however after reading that I am still unclear as to what I am supposed to clean the glasses with. When it comes to clear surfaces I would usually think to use Windex so that it leaves no streaks; however isn't Windex alcohol based? Anyone know what products are safe to use on these glasses?

Also, is it a safe assumption to think that you can use the inside of the cloth pouch the glasses come in to clean them with, or will that possibly scratch the lenses?

That essentially sounds like you can't use any type of fluid or anything at all except for the microfiber cloth. In my experience, things just don't get clean by just gently wiping them. I guess they expect us to just live with dirty glasses, or buy new ones?

FWIW, my rechargeable Samsungs came with a cleaning cloth in addition to the pouch. I don't think I'd use the pouch itself.

Hmmm.. I have Nestri active 3D glasses. Is the process of cleaning Samsung 3D glasses the same with Nestri glasses?? Please help

What's wrong with plain old soap and water? Use a nice gentle liquid soap like you have In the bathroom, or if you must, liquid dish soap.

And not a lot of it - you don't need a ton of soap. A drop on the cloth is way more than necessary for a pair of glasses. Never apply directly to the lens.

And the cloth is damp, but not wet and especially not dripping wet. It is electronics, after all, but a damp cloth is fine.

Yes microfibre cloth, no paper towels. That's all you need.

Wipe it down with a dry microfibre cloth and you're golden.

If soap is too ... boring and you want something more techie, get lens cleaner from your photo supply store - that stuff is also meant for delicate optics with delicate coatings. You can also find lens cleaner paper which are lint free sheets of paper meant for cleaning lenses with the cleaning solution on it.

Funny thing is, most electronics all state to only clean with soap and water.

Cleaning mine is easy. Just throw them in the dishwasher.

the XPAND active 3D shutter glasses are water proof and can be cleaned in the dishwasher or sink. A UV wand or other non toxic disinfectant can be used to sanitize the glasses.
