Steps To Clean The Maui Jim Sunglasses

best ways to clean Maui Jim Sunglasses

Step 1

Check the instructions provided on the leaflet that you received while buying the Maui Jim sunglasses. And if you have lost the leaflet, then go to the internet, it has all your solutions. Type in the model of your sunglasses and ask what materials it is made up of and whether it has reactions of any kind to water or soap. 

There might be some high-end materials that are used for making those sunglasses, and we need to ensure that we do not harm those materials. They make Maui Jim special after all!

Step 2

If there isn’t any water-phobic material, then we’ll start by rinsing the glasses with lukewarm water. It allows cleansing of excess dirt and debris which may be hidden in the hinges or behind the nose pads.

If your glasses are allergic to water, then use a cleansing solution. They are pretty much affordable and credible for cleaning too. 

Step 3

Remember you received a cloth while purchasing the sunglasses? Yes, that’s a microfiber cloth that absorbs a very small amount of water to clean lints from the frames and lenses. Use it to clean the lenses and the frames for an extra layer of cleaning. 

This applies to both sensitive and non-sensitive sunglasses. For sensitive sunglasses use cleansing solutions, and for non-sensitive ones use water. 

Step 4

Wipe it thoroughly to ensure that there’s no dirt remaining in the sunglasses. You can use a wet wipe or a dry wipe or just rinse if your sunglasses aren’t sensitive to water. But this step of drying it off is very important, just in case the residues are still sitting on your sunglasses. 

Step 5

Polish it with a lens cleaning cloth. This is to ensure that there are no smudges or streaks on your lenses. 

And that is all! Your Maui Jim sunglasses will look as good as new! 

Top practices to clean your Maui Jim Sunglasses

But there are a few more things you need to keep in mind, so as to not destroy your sunglasses while trying to clean them. 

  • Avoid using hot water, as it can damage the lens coating or frames.
  • Never wipe them when they are dry, it can result in scratches.
  • Never wipe them using paper towels, tissues, or clothes. These materials are rough and can cause scratches on the lenses. Use only microfiber cloths to wipe your glasses.
  • Avoid using alcohol-based products, aerosols, and perfumes on them, as they too damage lens coatings.
  • And if they have specialized coatings, then consult a professional optician. 


In conclusion, cleaning expensive sunglasses requires gentle handling and appropriate cleaning methods. Use mild soap, lens cleaning solutions, or specialized wipes, along with a soft microfiber cloth. 

Avoid harsh chemicals, excessive heat, and rough materials. Regular cleaning and proper storage will help preserve the quality and lifespan of your valuable eyewear.
