A little about us...
Hi! We are Ukotini Direct. You are probably used to seeing us at exhibitions, trade shows or county shows across the country. During these unprecedented times keeping our glasses and personal items clean is of paramount importance.
Ukotini is developed from Premium lens Cleaners from around the world. It contains no alcohol, no silicon or salt which are usually found in similar cleaners and wipes - these could damage lenses or frames over time.
Ukotini cleans glasses (lenses), mirrors and phones, but also cleans:
-Tablets -TV Screens -Monitors -Laptops -Gun Scopes -Binoculars -Motorcycle Visors -Camera Lenses -Chrome
-Dead Skin -Makeup -Hairspray
-Sweat -Grease -Dust
-Streaks & Smears
It also cleans jewellery; gold, silver, platinum, diamonds and much more, bringing them up sparkling clean.
Once you’ve cleaned your glasses two to three times you’ll never get them as clean, so after that it’s just about maintaining a cleanliness routine. We suggest that you usually clean them every 2-3 days depending on what environment you work in, but during the Corona Virus period we recommend once to twice daily. Whilst some would argue that this is highly frequent for a cleaning routine, a small study in 2018 ‘confirmed that dangerous bacteria can grow on your eyeglasses, including the bacteria that cause staph infections. A staph infection is caused by the staphylococcus bacteria, which are predominantly found on the skin or in the nasal cavity. In most cases, these bacteria enter the body through common areas such as cuts, but can also enter through other sensitive areas, such as the eyes. A German study found that those who were carriers of the staphylococci ‘carried the same strains on their eyeglasses (67%) and on their hands (62%)’ as well as in their nasal cavity. This type of bacteria can cause skin infections on various parts of the body, including a swelling of the eyelids, but it can also cause ‘more serious infections, like food poisoning, blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome. A regular glasses cleaning routine would reduce the risk of a staph infection and would keep your glasses in tip-top condition.
