    what verb with the glasses?

    Which verb do you use when you use a cloth to clean the glasses of your sunglasses?
    Is it simply "to clean up" or is there a particular collocation or a phrasal verb to express that?
    And how to call the cloth used to do this action? Is it a "glasses cloth"?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Lens-cloth.

    I clean my glasses, or I polish them.

    You clean your lenses. Or clean your glasses.

    I call the cloth I use "the bottom of my shirt."
