    Several ways to skin the cat - another is in www.customchemicalpkg.com

    However you do it, it's labor intensive - not difficult; it's time consuming. With some work and finesse the lenses will look crystal clear if they are not deeply pitted by rocks and gravel.

    It's also been discussed here several times. A search should turn up several of the threads.

    If you're looking to keep it cheep then squeeze a generous amount from a tube of Pepsident or Aim (lowest costing toothpaste available) onto a clean cloth or sponge, clean then rinse with water every couple minutes -- works for mild to medium cases, well enough to pass inspection.
