Soap Application When Eyeglasses Steam

January 2nd, 2022

To prevent annoyance caused by a deposit of moisture upon eyeglasses, when going from a cold into a warm atmosphere, moisten the tips of the fingers and rub them over a cake of soap. Then rub them over the lens, and polish as usual. One application every day or two is all that is necessary.

Money Cleans Eye Glasses

April 22nd, 2018

To clean your eye glasses use a soft bank note. It will not scratch or mar them and leaves them beautifully clear. First steam the lenses with your breath, then wipe and polish them with a piece of currency. A trial will prove this far better than using a handkerchief.

Stye, Home Method to Kill

August 26th, 2008

“To hasten the pointing of a stye apply hot compresses for fifteen minutes every two hours. As ill health may be the cause, a tonic may be needed; glasses properly fitted should be worn and a boric acid eyewash used until long after the stye has disappeared.” Applying hot compresses will relieve the congestion and gives much relief. Ill health produces a poor circulation of the blood and a good tonic will be found beneficial. Styes are frequently produced by need of glasses.
