Quick and Easy Cherry Coconut Fluff Dessert Recipe

My husband and I were invited to a summer cookout and volleyball extravaganza. Like all good Midwesterners, we automatically knew that includes bringing food for the potluck portion of the party. Unfortunately, earlier in the week due to a raging thunderstorm that took down power line followed by temperatures that shot up into the 90’s (F ) our electric company gave a huge chunk of the state the gift of multiday rolling blackouts early in the week. Fortunately, we got our electricity back in one of the first waves. Even though we didn’t lose any of our food in the freezer (I had the freezer packed with big reusable ice packs similar to these to get them ready for the party) the power outages made grocery shopping for fresh party food ingredients difficult.

How to Make Eyeglass Cleaning Spray!

Ever since I first started wearing glasses as a kid, I cleaned them every morning by wetting the lenses and carefully cleaning them with a little bit of dish washing liquid on my fingers. I’d pat the lenses dry with a towel for a clean and clear view of the day before me.

It wasn’t until I got a new optometrist as an adult that I was introduced to the magic of lens cleaning spray. Paired with the microfiber lens cleaning cloth that also came with my glasses, I can easily slip everything into my purse and clean my glasses on the go for streak free viewing morning, noon, and night.

Mind. Blown.

(It’s the simple things, I know.)

My optometrist gives me free lens cleaning fluid refills but of course, I ran out and couldn’t make it down to his shop in time for an out of town trip. Turns out lens cleaning spray is very, very, very easy and inexpensive to make. In fact, you might already have everything you need to make cleaning fluid for glasses at home!

DIY Lens Cleaning Spray

You will need the following ingredients:

Rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol- you can buy 70% isopropyl alcohol here. This is the same strength you’d find sold with first aid supplies

Water

Spray bottle- I several of these 2oz spray bottles filled with lens cleaning fluid so I can keep one in my purse, my desk drawer, and medicine cabinet

Optional but recommended: a microfiber eye glass cleaning cloth like this one

How to Make Lens Cleaning Fluid the Easy Way!

 

1. Pour three parts rubbing alcohol into the empty spray bottle.

2. Add one part water to the spray bottle, screw on the top, and give the bottle a little shake to mix the ingredients.

3. You’re done. That’s it. Really.

Since the rubbing alcohol quickly evaporates after cleaning your glasses with the microfiber cloth, you can also use my lens fluid spray recipe to clean camera lenses and smart phone and tablet touch screens.
