having just returned from holiday, I've bunged a load of stuff in the washing machine and as I hung it out to dry, my polarising filter and a lens cleaning cloth fell out of the pocket of a jacket. I was using the "delicates" cycle, of course ...

as my summicron is looking a bit grubby, i thought i might try this technique on it next time I have load to do ...

Paul, be sure to use a fabric softener. This will prevent spots from forming on the glass and use warm water for the rinse cycle.....
I would not suggest using a dryer but just use the air dry procedure..... this will keep the lens lube from leaking in the dryer and making a mess....
Let me know how it works....and please post a vid or some pics....
thanks and good luck Doc....
your special patient...

I have just fished an old toothbrush out of the bin, as I think it could be good for getting the dust off my E-P2's sensor, especially if I use a dab of Fairy Liquid
