Cleaning Your Microscope

In order to effectively clean your microscope there are a few factors that need to be considered:

  1. Quality and Type of Microscope
  2. Frequency of Use
  3. Type of Use

In order to prolong the life of your microscope, it is recommended that you use a cover to help protect it from any airborne contaminants. Another factor that helps, is where you store your microscope. Try to store your microscope in a clean, dry area with a regulated temperature. 

Try to stay away from solvents because they can destroy delicate components of your microscope. You can clean your microscope with a dust removing surface cloth and distilled water or microscope cleaning wipes.
