Clean Contact Lenses the Green Way
Contact lenses are an amazing invention, but keeping them clean can be a hassle. Do you know what’s even more amazing? Green tea. And even more amazing than that? Using green tea to clean your contact lenses.
Green tea is a natural antibacterial agent, and it’s gentle enough to use on delicate contact lenses. It’s also cheaper and more eco-friendly than traditional contact lens solutions. Plus, it smells great and gives you a little caffeine boost while you’re at it.
What You Need
To clean your contact lenses with green tea, you’ll need:
- A teapot or a cup

- A contact lens case
1. Boil water and let it cool down to room temperature.
2. Steep the green tea bag in the water for about 3-5 minutes.
3. Remove the tea bag from the water and let it cool down for a couple of minutes.
4. Pour the green tea into the contact lens case, filling it up to the line.

Cleaning your contact lenses with green tea is a simple, natural, and affordable way to keep them in top shape. Plus, it’s a fun way to incorporate some self-care into your daily routine.
