    Default Saliva stain on the front element.

    Hi guys,I am a newbie to dlsr photography & I just encountered a problem.Recently I bought a new lens but never attach any filter yet.So just now I noticed a small stain on it & for whatever reason,I dab my saliva onto the front element.To my horror,the stain spread slightly bigger but you can only see the stain from a certain angle.I have tried using microfiber cloth,lenspen but the stain seems quite stubborn.Hope some kind soul can advise or give some help,appreciate it.Sure hope that it is not a serious problem.Thank You!

    use a lens pen not saliva to clean your lens.

    use a lens pen to clean the stain.. since it is oily.. it will take a little more effort and time to clean, that's all.

    Ask your mom or wife for some glass cleaner and a clean tissue.

    use a damp tissue to dilute and dab the area to soften the dried saliva first .... dont know whats in your mouth when u did that

    then wipe off
