Cleaning cloths are a dime a dozen, but how often do you actually have one on hand when you really need it? Any photographer who has prepped for a perfect shot only to accidentally smudge the camera lens knows that keeping a microfiber wipe nearby is critically important. That’s why we like IvySkin’s IvyPouch Cleaning Cloth ($1) so much—it’s built to be right on your camera strap when you need it.
The bell-shaped pouch holds a retractable 5-3/4” x 6” cleaning cloth that’s perfect for the lens of your camera and could also be used an on iPhone, computer screen, or glasses. It’s got a plastic clip, so it can snap right on to a camera strap, backpack, or practically anywhere else. We’ve been using one for months and loving it, though the top drawstring that retracts the cloth has a tendency to detach the metal O-ring from the neoprene pouch. That said, for a buck (and with free shipping), you can’t really go wrong.
