Throughout the years professional photographers that have recognized the benefits of Lens Clens and been willing to share their findings with others have written several articles on our product:
What people are saying about Lens Clens
"Thanks for your help, and thanks for Lens Clens…it's the best lens cleaner I've ever used….And I've used plenty.
Museum of Natural History
Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.
"What makes this lens cleaning solution so good, heck if I know! The chemical components making up the magical pink fluid is a mystery (actually a trade secret), but the results are not. The high evaporation rate and zero residue of Lens Clens makes it the perfect lens cleaning fluid. More importantly, it's perfectly safe for the multi coatings of our precious lenses. The other lens cleaning fluids I've tried tend to either just move the mess around the glass or worse, leave their own film to be wiped off by some other means. I've tried many different lens cleaning fluids in a pinch, but for the past ten years Lens Clens has been the one I depend on."

"The real secret to the success of Lens Clens appears to me to be its ability to attack and remove oils. These oils come from the polluted atmosphere that we live in, but more importantly from the natural oils that are on our hands and face. These oils are good for our skin, but deadly to optical, as well as non-optical, surfaces that are not "dirt friendly". As much as I was amazed by the dirt removed from my lens surfaces, I was even more impressed by the dirt removed from the back of my camera bodies where my face makes contact as I look through the viewfinder."
"I cannot emphasize enough the importance of using Lens Clens on a soft cloth to clean the exterior surface of your camera and lenses. This will go a long way in protecting the expensive and delicate inner working parts of your photographic tools."
John W. Herbst

Thanks for your product Lens Clens - it does what it's supposed to do. I'm very fussy and was dissatisfied with other products that claim to clean but don't. Lens Clens is a cleaner like no other I have used – it actually works! I have used it to remove fingerprints, dirt, and oil residues from the inside of my limousine. It is the best product I have found to remove tar residues from smokers on the rear window. Your product makes detailing the inside of my limo a breeze. Don't ever change your product – it is simply the best and my business depends on it.
I received a free bottle of your Lens Clens with the Laser machine that I purchased and when I ran out I tried other solutions that were supposed to work but nothing ever seemed to do the job. The bottom line is I never found anything that works like your product, so I called the manufacturer of my laser machine to get your name. How do I get more, and how soon can I get some? Lens Clens really works.
I originally started using Lens Clens on my own camera equipment and it worked so well I brought some to work. Now we want to order some to clean all of our TV camera equipment. Thanks for making such a great product.

I received my first bottle of Lens Clens from another airplane pilot. After cleaning my control unit screens, and instrumentation covers I was hooked. Send me more I don't ever want to run out of this pink stuff that works so well.
The Story of Lens Clens
General Production Services was started in 1971 by several design engineers with the intent to develop new products. One of the founders, Mr. C K Reh had 12 years previous experience as Chief Engineer developing airline movie projectors for Technicolor, and the other key personnel had similar experience. Due to their combined backgrounds the initial emphasis of GPS included the design and building of the entire lens system that went into the Trans Com Sundstrand airline movie projectors. Having developed what they considered to be the finest multi-coated optical lens system in the industry, this product needed a superior cleaning system. Having gone through the frustrations of not finding an adequate cleaning solution, General Production Services formulated several professional grade optical cleaners to satisfy their own demanding requirements. Out of this development came Lens Clens #1, designed for coated or multi-coated surfaces, Lens Clens #2 specifically designed for cleaning front surface mirrors, Lens Clens #3 for uncoated optics (used in the manufacturing process prior to coating), and eventually Lens Clens #4 which was created for plastics. Initially General Production Services developed these formulations for internal use and airline movie projector customer use, and soon these superior optical cleaning solutions became known by professionals and industrial users who eventually tried them after hearing of their superior cleaning properties. Shortly after developing Lens Clens, General Production Services started selling these solutions under the Lens Clens brand name, because users with critical cleaning needs continued to ask the question – Where can I buy some?
Since day one Lens Clens usage has grown through word of mouth endorsements from satisfied customers who found that Lens Clens was the most effective optical cleaner commercially available. Lens Clens has been widely used by manufacturers and users of a wide variety of optics including general optics, laser optics, fiber optics, glass manufactures, as well as hospitals, schools, universities, and a wide variety of research facilities, laboratories, museums, and institutions. Repair centers for cameras, business machines, scientific equipment, as well as field service repair men use Lens Clens for cleaning optical surfaces, and although it is not otherwise sold directly to consumers we get many calls from professional and amateur photographers who use Lens Clens #1 on their personal camera equipment. One of the earliest users of Lens Clens #1 for photography use was Moose Peterson, a well-known professional wildlife photographer. Moose states in his article "I couldn't imagine using anything else to get the great outdoors off my equipment (it's cleaned everything from sap off the front element to sticky adhesive off a lens barrel)." Moose goes on to state "The high evaporation rate and zero residue of Lens Clens makes it the perfect lens cleaning fluid. More importantly, it's perfectly safe for the multi coatings of our precious lenses. The other lens cleaning fluids I've tried tend to either just move the mess around the glass or worse leave their own film to be wiped off by some other means. I've tried many different lens cleaning fluids in a pinch, but for the past ten years Lens Clens has been the one I depend on." Other well-known wildlife photographers such as John W. Herbst (Grizzly Bear Nature Photography),and Arthur Morris (Birds As Art) endorse Lens Clens as well. Industrial and professional users of optical equipment state that Lens Clens is simply the best optical cleaner they have ever found, and many industrial manufacturer's of laser machines purchase Lens Clens to give away with each machine they sell and other manufacturers of equipment with optical surfaces do the same thing. Manufactures would not endorse Lens Clens for use with their own product in this way if they did not fully believe that Lens Clens was beneficial to use with their product. As John Herbst states following his endorsement for Lens Clens "I do not get paid for this product review. I just know a good product when I see (and use) one."
Our solutions are created to the same exacting standards they were originally formulated to in 1971. We owe our success and many years of doing business, to you, our good customers for telling your friends about Lens Clens, and asking the question
– Where can I buy some?
