The Mainline Photographics professional lens cleaning kit value pack includes a bottle of ROR residual oil remover, a Rocket blower and a triple pack of Mikros micro fibre cloths.
Instructions for use courtesy of the www.ror.net web site:
The most likely source of damage to glass surfaces and sensitive optical coatings is abrasion caused by rubbing the fine particles that are resting on the surface. Never “dry clean” a lens because that will guarantee scratching and abrading of the coating.
- Use a can of compressed air or a camel hair blower brush to remove any particles that may be resting on the surface.
- Place a few drops or spray a little ROR on the surface, let the solution settle for a few moments then wipe gently with a lens cleaning cloth or tissue making sure that you use as much of the clean area of cloth or tissue, each time you wipe. If you are working on a small surface, squeeze a few drops or spray some ROR onto the applicator that you are using and commence the cleaning as described above.
- Apply enough pressure to effectively clean the optical surface.
- Use a clean cloth or tissue to do a final wipe of the surface, again using sufficient pressure for each additional motion.
- Use a professional task wiper to apply and remove ROR with. These soft, chemical free, non abrasive tissues offer great absorbency and streak free cleaning on sensitive surfaces. If you have to use a generic variety of tissues, make sure it is untreated.
- Untreated micro-fiber cloths also work well as long as you wash them frequently and keep them dust free in a pouch or container. Be sure to check the make-up of your micro-fiber cloth before using with ROR. Treated micro fiber cloths can integrate poorly with ROR, leaving a residue on the surface. We recommend you wash and dry the cloth before proceeding with your application.
Note: ROR is Not recommended for camera internals such as focusing screens and sensors.
