Lens Cleaning in Albuquerque?

I had a relatively disastrous lens cleaning attempt this evening when some of the dyes from a microfiber cloth in a lens cleaning kit leached out and ended up all over the surface of the front element of my lens. I used a bit of water with the cloth to try to sop as much of it up as possible but the result is pretty unpleasant with strange residues and whatnot and I basically never want to touch it myself again lest I do permanent damage (if I haven't already).

Does anyone in Albuquerque recommend a place in town that does a good job on lens cleaning where I might have them take a stab at instead?

Try Residual Oil Remover and standard lens cleaning paper.
