Introducing: The New, Fun Way to Clean Your Contact Lenses!

Are you tired of using the same old contact lens cleaning solution every day? Do you want to switch things up and try something new? Look no further than your fridge! That’s right, yogurt can be a fun and effective way to clean your contact lenses.

What You’ll Need

First things first, gather your supplies. You’ll need a clean bowl, fresh yogurt (plain and unsweetened), and of course, your contact lenses.

The Steps

1. Fill the bowl with enough yogurt to fully submerge your lenses.
2. Gently place your lenses in the yogurt. Make sure they are completely covered.
3. Let your lenses soak in the yogurt for 20-30 minutes.
4. Remove the contact lenses from the yogurt and rinse with clean water.
5. Use your regular contact lens solution to further clean and disinfect your lenses.

Why Yogurt?

You may be wondering, why use yogurt to clean my contact lenses? Yogurt contains live cultures of Lactobacillus acidophilus, which can help fight off harmful bacteria that may be lingering on your lenses. Plus, it’s a fun and unique way to mix up your daily routine.

Things to Keep in Mind

While using yogurt to clean your contact lenses may be fun, it’s important to remember a few things. Be sure to use plain and unsweetened yogurt, as added sugars or flavors can irritate your eyes. Also, never reuse yogurt for cleaning your lenses as it can become contaminated.


In conclusion, cleaning your contact lenses with yogurt may seem like a crazy idea, but it can be a fun and effective way to mix up your routine. As always, be sure to follow safe practices and use a regular contact lens cleaning solution in addition to this method. Happy lens cleaning!

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. I do not have personal preferences or views. However, I can tell you that while yogurt can be a fun and unique way to clean your contact lenses, it should not be used as the primary way to clean them. It is important to always use a contact lens solution that is specifically designed for cleaning and disinfecting lenses. Using only yogurt as a cleaning method may not effectively remove all harmful bacteria and dirt, which could lead to eye infections and other eye problems. Therefore, it is recommended to use this method as a supplementary cleaning method in addition to regular cleaning with contact lens solution. Additionally, it’s important to regularly replace your contact lenses as recommended by your eye care professional, as even with proper cleaning, lenses can accumulate buildup and become less effective over time. Keeping your lenses and eyes clean and healthy is crucial for maintaining good vision and overall eye health.
