This product is a small plastic vial with screw cap, in which a
piece of chemically saturated folded felt is packed. When the
screw cap is removed, this wet piece of felt extends up and
above the top opening of the vial, so that the plastic container
serves as an applicator when the screw cap is removed.
The product is designed as a quick and easy lens cleaner for eye
glasses and to use it, you simply remove the cap, dab the wet
felt lightly on each side of the eye glass lens and then polish
off with a handkerchief or tissue. It not only cleans the lens
with a sparkling clarity but it also retards fogging of the lens
under certain conditions of heat and cold.
Another feature is its long lasting effect, so convincingly
demonstrated by suggesting that the customer or prospect smear a
LENZ-BRITE cleaned lens with his finger and then polish off with
his handkerchief, without further application of the cleaner.
This feature makes one application last all day long.
The product is simple to make - all that is needed is your vial
which may be plastic or glass, the felt or any absorbent
substance that will hold the non-drying cleaning solution and
the solution itself. The absorbent substance may be felt,
synthetic sponge, cotton wicking, or even a piece of cloth
rolled up to fit the small container or dispenser.
FORMULA FOR THE SOLUTION:
Ethylene Glycol . . . . . . . . 8 parts
Wetting Agent . . . . . . . . . 1 part
Water . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8 parts
Mix the wetting agent in the water and then stir in the Ethylene
Glycol. We have given the units as "PARTS". You may consider
the parts as drams, ounces, pints, quarts or gallons according
to size batch you wish to make.
TREATING THE FELT: As explained previously, other substances
may be used in treating any substance with this solution;
simply immerse the felt in the solution and allow to remain
until it is completely saturated with the liquid. Wring out
only lightly and then insert the treated felts in small vials or
containers. One concern uses a strip of felt folded and
inserted in the vial, so the folded edge protrudes above the
opening of the vial, the fold being the point of application to
LABELING: Give your product an appropriate name. Beneath the
name, state "Long Lasting Lens Cleaner" or "Instant Lens

SELLING: These vials or containers are put up TWELVE to a

your initial offer to salesmen and agents can offer them TWO
samples for $1.00, suggesting that they sell one and get their
dollar back and use the other to prove that this is the money
