Otto, close to the heart this. Just for Specs though. Must admit I use Methylated Spirit.....for glass cleaning, but do wonder if it degrades the coatings. The only reason I have tried it, it that it smells very like the stuff they use in Opticians.
Any Chemists here that can enlighten me. (IPA sounds very aggressive)
