Wipe with a soft cloth. If the cabinet is very dirty, dampen the cloth with a weak
solution of neutral detergent and water, and then wipe clean.

times, then wipe it lightly with the brush to remove dust.

starting in the middle and working to the outside edge.
Use only very light pressure on the lens to avoid forcing it
out of alignment.
