    Question How to use this set of Lens Cleaning Kit?

    Hi,

    I've recently bought a set of Lens Cleaning Kit from CP at the price of $8.50. The set includes:

    1) A lens blower
    2) A piece of orange cloth
    3) A bottle of lens cleaning liquid
    4) A stack of lens cleaning paper
    5) 5 sticks of cotton buds

    Can anyone please tell me what should be the correct way to make use of this set of stuff? What is the order that I should use the items and how should I use them? Thanks in advance!

    I generally use onli 2 items. The blower & the lens tissue.

    Lens tissue, clean from outer circumference to the centre of lens.
    Dats all I do.
    Blower to blow of dust.

    This is how I use these items

    [i]1) A lens blower
    good for blowing dust away from the lens

    [i]2) A piece of orange cloth
    good for removing particles that not able blow by above item

    [i]3) A bottle of lens cleaning liquid
    so far I have not use it ...

    [i]4) A stack of lens cleaning paper
    good for cleaning lens

    [i]5) 5 sticks of cotton buds
    usually I will use it to clean my ears

    me only have the blower n a microfiber cleaning cloth .........

    wat me normally do iz to uze the blower to blow away the duzt on the filter and/or lenz ....

    if the duzt perziztently stayz on ..... me will exhale my breath onto the surface n then uze the cloth to wipe in a circular fazhion frm the center of the lenz outwardz .....

    me will try to uze the blower to remove the duzt n not touch the filter ( more so for the lenz ) if pozzible .....

    Izzit? I read somewhere from outside in. Reason being if inside out, then "debris" will gather at the circumference of lens.
    I dunno, am confused rite now.

    Yah. Then clean from the centre of the lens. Cleaner dat way.
    I oso not sure. Remember reading on the net somewhere about this.

    Extracted from Canon site: "Gently wipe the lens surface from the edges toward the center of the lens, with a lifting rather than rubbing action. A micro-fiber cleaning cloth is a good alternative to lens tissue, and requires no lens cleaning fluid."
