Dust, rain and fingerprints are an unavoidable part of shooting outdoors. But dirty lenses and filters can wreak havoc on your photographs. Sometimes it’s just a small pull of focus that you don’t notice until after you’re home, but it’s always enough to make you wish you’d done something about it sooner. Now, you can.

To keep your glass clean and your photos crisp, our compact but comprehensive lens cleaning kit has everything you need for a professional-grade clean. Designed for use on nano-coated optical glass, it’s perfect for cleaning your best camera gear, and great for your glasses, computer screen, phone and everything else that deserves to glisten. Take a closer look at what’s included.
Perfect for removing the occasional grain of sand or a stray hair that lands on your lens during a windy beach shoot, each lens cleaning kit comes with an ergonomically designed silicone blower. Rather than fogging up your lens or filter by trying to blow away loose particles with your mouth, one squeeze of your new silicone blower will deliver a powerful and direct blow of air to get rid of them before coming in with other equipment.
Ultra-Fine Brush Bristles
Say you’ve noticed some stubborn debris lodged in the rim of your lens or filter. This is a job for your brush. With ultra-fine bristles, this brush is precise enough to remove stubborn particles and gentle enough to keep your glass in perfect condition.
“This liquid miracle has been carefully formulated without alcohol, ammonia or any other harsh chemicals, so it won’t destroy the delicate protective coatings on your lenses and filters.”
Chemical-Free Glass Cleaner
For fingerprints, water marks and any other streaks or smudges that weren’t removed with the blower or brush, reach for our chemical-free glass cleaner. This liquid miracle has been carefully formulated without alcohol, ammonia or any other harsh chemicals, so it won’t destroy the delicate protective coatings on your lenses and filters. We recommend spraying your glass cleaner onto the microfibre cloths that come in your cleaning kit to prevent any excess liquid from leaking into the sides of your equipment.
Oversized Microfibre Cloths
With the help of a single spritz of glass cleaner, your microfibre cloths will grab onto remaining microscopic particles and lift them off your gear. Each cleaning kit comes with two microfibre cloths, so you can use one while you wash the other. Plus, they’re bigger than the standard microfibre cloth for use on your laptop, computer, iPad, and any other larger glass surface that needs to sparkle.

Reusable Travel Pouch
Because we know your camera bag doesn’t need to get any more complicated, each item in the camera lens cleaning kit comes neatly packaged in a reusable travel pouch. Made using reinforced paper fabric, this travel pouch looks like leather and acts like it too – it will soften and gain character with time but retain its strength for years to come.
