Clean with iso propyl alcohol and very soft cloth for glasses.
Polish?! The amount of time you might as well buy new pair.

Do you have a local "Dollar Store" -- everything a dollar ?
Buy your cheater glasses there.

the reading glass pictured are dollar store.

The Magnifying Glass are not. I got them at Michael's craft store. For more that a dollar!

The read glass did not get sprayed with clear. They are just fingerprint dirty...

I’ve always used T-Cut Original for cleaning overspray off my ready readers, and it also works wonders on Mr. Color clear lacquer too. Word of warning though, use a specific spectacles cleaning cloth with VERY light pressure for best results. ;-)

I suppose Brasso would work too?

Sorry Bill I should have been clearer I just meant normal dirty glasses this time, fingerprints etc... But will keep your tips in mind for modelling accidents....
