Make your Old Sunglasses New Again

If Santa didn’t get you a new pair of sunglasses this year, these simple tips will help you minimize or remove scratches from your old sunglasses lenses.

Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you remove or minimize scratches from sunglasses lenses and fix your old sunglasses:

Toothpaste is not just great for your dental hygiene. It is also used for  filling small holes and nail pops. As for sunglasses scratches, the same principle applies.  If you rub toothpaste (non-minty, non-whitening, non-abrasive, non-gel) into the scratch with a cotton ball using circular movements for about 10 seconds, chances are your lenses will look like new again. Get rid of the excess with cool water and repeat the process if necessary.

If you didn’t get the desired results with toothpaste, spray your lenses lightly with furniture spray. Then, use a lint-free cloth to rub the spray around in a circular motion. The spray will fill the scratches – although the fill will only last a few days. For more permanent results, gently rub around the lenses with a cotton ball with a bit of silver polish, getting rid of the excess polish with a lint-free cloth.

If none of the above methods to remove scratches from sunglasses lenses worked to your satisfaction, try the car wax method: apply car wax to your sunglasses lenses with a soft cloth in circular motions, getting rid of the excess with a clean cloth.

'90s Sunglasses are Back

Every trend from the ’90s has made a triumph come back over the last years. But if you thought the resurgence of ’90s trends was over, think again. ’90s sunglasses are back. Not just the super small ’90s-inspired sunglasses. Colored lenses, heart shaped and thick frames sunglasses popularized by Kurt Cobain from Nirvana, are also making the headlines and heading the cat walk.

’90s sunglasses are, finally, black. And we all knew this was mean to happen sooner or later. Fashion never settles, it’s like a wanderer, always on the move. This happens with new trends, but also with the comebacks. And for the last few years, several ’90s fashion trends made successful comebacks, so it was only a matter of time for ’90s sunglasses to reappear in the fashion scene.

Retro ’90s sunglasses come in stylish frames for both men and women. Grunge-styled glasses that mimic Kurt Cobain’s famous shades and brighter designs are becoming more popular now, than ever.

However, if you are looking for a pair of these throwback essentials you should be aware that some of the ’90s sunglasses styles may not offer the ideal protection that you should always look for in sunglasses.

In fact, the tiny designs are less-than-ideal when it comes to providing the 99 to 100 percent block of UV light recommended by doctors.

Nevertheless, ’90s sunglasses are a nice revival and will make great accessories to compliment your wardrobe this summer.
