Glasses-Cleaning Cap

Wee window washer works wonders

Picture yourself speeding along, driving on the autobahn or at a sidewalk café in Paris, eating, drinking and flirting with your date. Suddenly you notice a fingerprint or spittle splash on your sunglasses. Not to worry. Being chic and debonair, you casually give your cap a quick shake initializing its glasses-cleaning function.

As you suavely continue your pursuits, a minute plastic man on a petit platform is lowered on nylon lines from the bill of the cap. Being earlier calibrated, the platform centers itself over the left lens and a squirt of harmless cleaning solution is delivered to the surface. To the tinny tune of George Formby’s When I’m Cleaning Windows, the miniature man holding a small squeegee starts removing the liquid with a waving motion like a windshield wiper. By adjusting its lines, the platform moves to the right lens and repeats the cleaning procedure before retreating back under the bill.

       Being chic and debonair, you have a handkerchief in your top pocket that you can whisk out to handle minor blemishes on your sunglasses and elsewhere. And then return, neatly folded, to whence it came.   

       (And, being chic and debonair, you wouldn't be seen dead wearing a gimmicked hat.) (Speaking from experience, you understand.)

       Ah, but then the handkerchief, that you'd forgotten you'd blown your nose in, would pull out with it a used gum and a half cig that drop in your food. As your glasses fall in the commotion, spilling burgundy on your date, being chic and debonair, you're not.

       I prefer the chic and debonair laser eye surgery hat. Just tug the brim, small laser cutters descend to eye-level, and you'll never need to wear glasses ever again.

       stu - how does your approach help cleaning sunglasses then?
