DSLR owners can attest to the fact that cameras are an investment. The different lenses, mounts, cases, straps, batteries and more may be expensive, but they’re all an integral part of having (and maintaining) a decent camera. That’s why it’s so important that you protect all of these parts.

When basic Lysol wipes and a paper towel simply aren’t enough, it’s time to look beyond the kitchen for your camera cleaning needs. After all, you spend so much on your camera already — shouldn’t you clean it with the right tools?
