    Blow first, brush second, clean microfiber last.

    Always wipe gently, in ONE direction, ONCE, then use a new side/fold of cloth as necessary.

    Sometimes, a light breath helps.

    And if that doesn't work, use a high quality cleaning solution such as the one made by Carl Zeiss. Do NOT use a coated or printed microfiber with ANY cleaning solution, especially those containing ammonia such as ROR.

    Resort to the lens pen if all else fails. Or preserve the lenspen for use when on location. More convenient.

    CHEERS!

    Nothing wrong if the PecPad is clean. But it's a terribly expensive option.

    Take it apart and dump inside the washing machine...

    Joke aside, just use your breathe and a good quality micro-clothe.

    I personally like the Panther one.
