How to clean a camera lens?

The lens is one of the vital parts of a camera. It is used in conjunction with a camera body to make images of persons, places, or things either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing images chemically and electronically. It is important to have a well-maintained lens in order to capture the best results. Below are some tips on how to clean your lenses.
Purchase some simple cleaning kits. You can find it on every online store out there, and this is affordable and inexpensive. Cleaning kits consist of the following, microfiber cloth, air-blower, brushes, and some lens fluid.

Consider also regular cleaning of your cases, as it picks up some dirt, dust, and grease quickly.

Just use a blower or brushes when removing dust on the surface of your lens.

Considering some of the lenses are weather-sealed, remember to always wipe a dry microfiber cloth and avoid using a cloth dampened in water.

Inspect your filters, front and back elements by using a light to see if there is any dirt or dust on them.

Clean smudges off by using a lens cloth, do it in a circular motion starting in the center.

Use your lens cap. This will aid in keeping your lens clean.
