Residual Oil Remover, or simply ROR, establishes a new definition of what a 'clean' surface is. The first application of ROR often results in an amazing 'wow' factor for the user; sometimes it's hard to believe what comes off the surface being cleaned.

ROR has redefined the science of lens-care by utilizing a formula of natural ingredients that eradicates the counterproductive microscopic oil residues from the surface and pores of glass and plastic. On camera lenses, LCD screens, flat-panel TV's, cell-phones iPods and more - ROR cuts through, breaks down, and allows the removal of all those performance debilitating smudges and smears. Once those oily residues are eliminated, dust, dirt, and pollen particles have nothing to cling to; this enables the sparkling clean surface to remain cleaner for a longer period of time.

ROR has been tested and proven to be safe to use on most delicate and precious surfaces; from multicoated lenses to beryllium-surfaced contacts, ROR has proven itself to be one of the finest and safest lens treatments available.

ROR can be applied with an untreated micro-fiber cloth or untreated disposable wipes. When using a micro-fiber cloth, it is advisable to wash it out regularly in a mild soap solution that is free of additives or softeners. Washing the micro-fiber cloth before using it with ROR ensures a neutral starting point for a successful cleaning session.

The surface to be cleaned must be moistened with ROR prior to wiping; it should be applied to the task-wiper first - not directly on the lens or surface. This prevents pools of liquid from going where it's not supposed to, while conserving the solution. Gently blotting the surface to be cleaned with a moistened cloth or wipe will allow the solution to work into the layers of build-up, facilitating its safe and complete removal. A clean area of the cloth, or a new wipe, should be used for the final cleaning stages.

When cleaning a well-loved lens with ROR for the first time, several applications and wipes may be needed to remove the multi-layer build-up of oils, pollution, and dirt.

Note! Not recommended for use on focusing screens, CCD/CMOS sensors, or internal aliasing filters

Safely cleans lenses, scanners, LCD screens, optics, TVs, iPods, etc

      I had a bottle that was about 15 years old from my old film camera bag. Thought I would use it up, but it made lenses worse. Went back to a newer bottle and it worked great. not sure what the shelf life is, but it's less than 15 years.

      As a 20 yr. pro-photo and labtech, I've tried using this for over 12 yrs over 99% Isopropyl as an alternate and it has left a smear each time which needed a cleanup with Isopropyl. It does remover residue but leaves a smear. To get my lenses lab clean, I use straight 91-99% Isopropyl with real cotton swabs and a gentle hand.

      After cleaning, use a bright pen-light at 45̊ to inspect the lens surface. Best to protect and prevent lens from debris (use a fine hair brush and canned air) then to be frequently cleaning them as the delicate multi-coating will suffer. Never keep lenses in a camera bag for prolong periods as any moisture will settle in the lens and grow mold. Instead; have a dust/moisture free airy storage place or use Pelican type (sealed) cases with silica inside (my preferred method) for the case has a double use of water protection on expeditions.

          Comments about ROR Residual Oil Remover:

          This product is strong and safe for lenses. To use that all you need to do is apply a little to a lens tissue and then clean the surface. Do not let the fluid run over the surface of the glass, because the cleaner can raise dirt from out of the mount and float the dirt up and onto the surface of the lens. I have seen this product increase light transmission of a lens by 1/2 of a stop.

                                I've tried many lens cleaning solutions from 99.99% pure alcohol to visible dust lens cleaner, etc etc...

                                This is the best I've tried.

                                Really does get lenses sparklingly clean and leaves no smears.

                                Not especially cheap, but this little bottle will probably last 5 years so in real terms, it's hardly a huge cost...

                                    I had some really stubborn small dots on my 500 mm lens that no cleaner would remove. In desperation I asked some fellow photographers and they suggested ROR. Well! I am so impressed with this product, it removed just about all the specks I had, a few applications were necessary but it worked!
                                    I highly recommend it.

                                              The trick is to use it very lightly and keep changing lens tissue, to the point where you fee like you're being wasteful. The tissue picks up all the dirt this floats off the lens surface. The first time or two you clean a lens, you might see a streaky situation appear. That's because this is floating so much gunk off your lens, it's hard to pick up all at once.

                                              It's the best!

                                                      I have used ROR for years. It is better than any other cleaner that I have used at removing finger grease and salt water spray.

                                                        Very accurate product. The dropper is better than the spray in certain circumstances...

                                                                As a 20 yr. pro-photo and labtech, I've tried using this for over 12 yrs over 99% Isopropyl as an alternate and it has left a smear each time which needed a cleanup with Isopropyl. It does remover residue but leaves a smear. To get my lenses lab clean, I use straight 91-99% Isopropyl with real cotton swabs and a gentle hand.

                                                                After cleaning, use a bright pen-light at 45̊ to inspect the lens surface. Best to protect and prevent lens from debris (use a fine hair brush and canned air) then to be frequently cleaning them as the delicate multi-coating will suffer. Never keep lenses in a camera bag for prolong periods as any moisture will settle in the lens and grow mold. Instead; have a dust/moisture free airy storage place or use Pelican type (sealed) cases with silica inside (my preferred method) for the case has a double use of water protection on expeditions.

There is a stark difference in the glass when cleaned with this as opposed to conventional lens cleaners. Cleaned a filter that I was about to throw away because it appeared cloudy. After cleaning with this it looked like new. Wonderful for eye glasses, too! You'll think your vision has just become more acute!

                                                                      I used this on my friend's lens, and it brought impressive results. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because there's a chance of it leaving a residue on filters or lenses, which can only be avoided if it's wiped a certain way.

                                                                            I tried the Nikon Lens Pen cleaning kit and was disappointed with its performance. I like this product, it has a slight alcohol smell and cleans well without any streaking. Use it with Kim Wipes.
