Had been wondering if anyone ever wash their microfibre cloth. The ones we use to clean our gears with. It will get dirty sooner or later right? At least theres some sweat and dust trapped in the cloth.

Cost of cloth, $10.

Cost of Grime damaging lens if not washed properly, $150 - $12000

Cost of your best photo with defects b'cos of that, Priceless. :(

yah, thats the latest thing i learnt. you don't need a dust-free lens. coz, in the photo, it wun be affected. my friend taught me this, coz I asked why he didn protect his lens with a lens cap.

Use dish washing detergent. Leaves no residue!

Are you sure? :bigeyes: I dont dare to use any detergent just in case there are residue that can etch away the coating of the Lenses or filter.
Yeah.. don't tell me you're going to eat the residue on your utensils and cutlery? But of course you'll have to rinse them well.

Just clean it properly and make sure all residues of soap and detergents are removed. Else use fresh wipes all the time...

Aiyah if too scared then just buy a new one lah. It's so cheap. I never wash mine. If you vacum then you will be cleaning only one side of it because while you clean one side the dust is sucked on the other side. Unless your house is totally dust free.

If you can afford an expensive piece of camera lens, I think it is reasonable to change your microfibre cloth once in a while as part of maineanance.

I change mine once every year. :)

Same here.

Usually I wasted it in the office sink. and it will be dry by the time I am going home...

won't do it at home, coz if mom cooks, the smoke and oilly fumes will stuck onto the cleaned cloth.
