Interesting. However, on my plastic lens on my glasses, the paper towel can actually scratch the lens, so I would think a soft cloth would be better.

Keep on hubbing!

I'm going to try this on my boyfriend's Modern Warfare 3 game. His son accidentally dropped it, and while picking it up scratched it to the point that it can't play in the x box. I hope this works. If so, he will be thrilled when he gets home. Thanks for this great tip. Great hub. I voted up, useful, and awesome!
