    I recently bought new optical lens cleaner liquid. But it leaves some kind off swirls. Is there anyway to clean this off. They dont affect the lens performance as much as I thought.

    It seems that get there when liquid drys off. Its a bit faster then I can dry it off.

    I use kodaks lens cleaning paper. I guess my cheap lens liquid is the villain here. My old one had a little brush that I swabbed on the lens and it never left this swirls.

    I am actually not sure if it is big deal as I havnt noticed that my photos turn out very different. Or does it really affect it, anyone with sharper eyes and experience that can tell what will happened?

    Is there any solution to get this swirls off, or do I have to face the fact that I better buy a new lens cleaner liquid?

    I've found that Eclipse alcohol, and Pec Pads work the best for cleaning lenses, and lens filters.
