Life for Worn Out LENSPENS

There comes a day when the LENSPEN in your camera bag stops doing a nice job cleaning your "glass". I've found that even though it may not do a nice job with a lens, it's a great thing to have around your desk. I use the brush to clean the dust out of my keyboard or dust off other stuff. There's still enough cleaning in the pen to clean reading glasses too.

I have an 'expired' Lenspen that I use to brush out the small nooks and crannies on the outside of the camera. I put some coloured tape around the barrel so I don't get it mixed up with the new one.

It can also be used as a tickler for those erotic moments with your special mate.......I've been told. Of course, I can't verify this, and if I could, I wouldn't!
Maybe someone can write a review?
Regards!

I pulled out the lens cleaner part and hack-sawed the hollow plastic socket to which the lens cleaner was fitted. This made a nice short brush that now easily goes into my compact camera bag. Great for cleaning lenses, the camera buttons + viewfinder. I got a cap for the brush end from a used chap stick. Now the brush is capped and clean.
My request for help and advice: After cleaning lenses with the lens pen, debris from lenses is bound to build up on the chamois leather tip impregnated with graphite. Is this not harmful to other lenses being cleaned? With lens tissue with or without lens cleaning fluid, you simply throw it away.
This question has nagged me and prevents me from buying a new lens pen.
Please do give your feedback.
Regards.

Good question, and I have wondered the same. I can only tell you that "I have heard" that if the pen is in contact with KY Jelly or Astroglide, it is best that you dispose of it before you mistakenly use it on one of your favorite lenses.......
