Personal Post – Eye Glasses Cleaner

This is handier than a pocket on a shirt. This little pouch contains an eye glasses cleaning cloth. The fact that it has a loop makes it even better. It’s easy to attach to a purse strap or just tuck the whole thing in… Continue Reading “Personal Post – Eye Glasses Cleaner”
