  3. The best lens cleaner is clean dry air. Like from a ear syringe.

    Next would include a clean soft brush (camel hair is suggested) or the
    torn edge of a fresh lens issue used as a brush.

    Following that would be a genital breath to dampen the lens followed by
    a clean lens tissue. Note: many people like the microfiber cloths, but I
    don't like them because the are seldom going to stay really clean and one
    hard particle can cause damage.

    Last would be the use of a commercial lens cleaning fluid and lens

    At all times it is best to use the least aggressive tool for the job.
    Over the years I was in photo retail, I saw more lenses damaged by cleaning,
    than by other causes. Only clean if the lens really needs cleaning. Most
    of the time they don't.

    When you say 'damp', are you referring to a wet fart, or some other
    kind of genital breath?
