And use the finest microfiber you can find.

    Here's a kit that has always worked for me, though the Hoyas take several tries. http://www.cleanoptics.com/shopexd.asp?id=26

    Zeiss wipes also have a good reputation.

    I'd be interested to know what liquid cleaner others have tried.

    Steve, thanks for the tip on Clean Optics. I have been struggling with Hoyas for years trying to get them fully clean.

    Do you just go direct to them off their site? Or do you pick it up local gun shops etc?

    I use the Zeiss Lens Wipes to clean my filters and they work wonderfully.. I store my filters in the Tiffen Belt Filter Pouch which I bought from B&H. I never had any problem so far, and I wish I never will

    Hmmm, my same setup. Do you have the 64? Also be great if anyone else chimes in that uses this pouch. I know a few more guys do cause that's where I got the idea from.

    yeah, I got the 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 500, and the Grad ND10 and the Hoya HD polarizing filter, and they are all stored in the filter pouch all the time.

    Side note: the grad ND10's pretty solid. Been using that as well.

    I think I got my kit from the arctic butterfly sensor cleaner guy, back before there was an arctic butterfly. I linked the manufacturer. No idea where it's available retail. If you do order or find a store with the supplies, get their microfiber cloth too. I've never found another one so fine and fluffy. On tough smudges I put a drop of cleaner on the microfiber, wipe as hard as necessary, then dry. All with circular motions.
