I would think that how one would use a cleaning cloth for lenses would not necessitate a disseration. Apparently I'm wrong. So, pick up the cloth using the fingers of either hand, make sure that the things on the cloth designed to prevent the cloth of drifting away in a hurricane by making it more gripable are away from the lens (i.e. touching one's fingers) and move the cloth in a circular pattern over the lens until dust, finger prints and other detritus disappear and the lens is clean. What makes this cleaning cloth so worthy of exhaustive comment is that when used as described, it cleans. Yippee!! and thank you for your attention.

I wanted to love this cloth, but I just think it is okay. I love the grips on the back, but it takes some getting used to and it is very small. I also had to use it longer than I expected to get the results I wanted (smudge marks off my lens).

    This is a great cleaning cloth for lenses and also smartphones, computer screens, etc. good size, light weight and compact, nice gripper side, easy to fit in your gear bag. Big improvement over the disposable packets and tiny cloths.

        A little smaller then what a expected and one side has rubber nubs for better grip. Seems pointless to be honest. It's an ok cloth.

                Comments about Pearstone Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, 18% Gray (7 x 7.9"):

                I'm sitting here with 3 microfiber cloths in front of me - the Pearstone, a Zeiss, and a no-name. There is no question which one I'll pick up to clean any optical glass - the Pearstone. The grip dots make it much easier to handle so that I clean the area I wanted to clean, not the one the cloth wanted to clean. I'm probably going to buy a bunch of these so I can always find at least one.

                  The little rubber friction bumps on one side of the cloth are a thoughtful addition to what is typically a slippery product to control.

                  The 18% gray could come in handy for setting custom white balance in a pinch. I'm surprised this hasn't been thought of before. A nice touch.

                  Otherwise, the microfiber cloth is soft and does just what it is supposed to do for cleaning dust and fingerprints from lenses and filters.

                    I used this to clean my camera screen before applying a screen protector. I know I'm going to love this cleaning cloth the more I use it. It cleaned the screen with ease and did a fantastic job removing fingerprints. I love the traction dots on one side and can see that another advantage to them is that you always will know which side of the cloth to use.

                      The rubber dots make this cloth very easy to use as it does not slide around in your hand as you are trying to use it to clean a lens.

                        It's a great lens or any glass cleaning cloth- I'm not sure if the rubber dots on one side really help or not- it sort of limits the usable area of the cloth.
