I was looking for an elusive desktop calculator (you know, one of those ones that starts the week on your desktop but at some time during any given night, jumps up, runs around the room and hides itself for no apparent reason) but found something far more interesting: An iSERIES.

Yep, one small enough to fit in my drawer.

When I bought my eyeglasses this past year at LensCrafters, I also bought a kit by iseries at the same time. I figured I would need something to keep my eyeglasses in good shape. They had this handy kit which included a spray bottle of cleaner, wipes and lens towels. I don’t remember the exact price of how much the kit cost; there may have been a discount on it, since I bought the items in a kit. Each item has an individual price listed, except the lens towels.

The bottle of cleaner is 2 oz. and individually costs $2.49. It is safe for any lens or coating. It is not for use on contacts. The spray contains isopropanol and should not be ingested. When I use it, it thoroughly cleans my glasses and leaves them sparkling.

The box of wipes contain 18 pre-moistened lens towelettes and individually costs $3.49. I take the wipes with me so I can clean my glasses on the go. Each wipe is in a little foil packet. They contain isopropanol and should not be used on contact lenses. I saw on the packaging that these can be used to clean: computer screens, camera lenses and binoculars.

Who knew that an iSeries could be used to “brush away dust and grit from a lens surface”
