Use some lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol. Compressed air if you have to knock lint off. Don't go pouring water in your lasers. Sheesh
Frank told me I should use a bit of cleaning solution. I didn't have any, so I used two drops of clean water, which worked perfectly.

Lol when someone tells you to do something, and you don't have it, don't try some random idea that pops into your head.

Random? Pfft, i'm not dumb. The first "random" idea I had was to use a Q-tip. I remembered hearing that the lens scratches easily and I didn't want to do it. Then Frank said I should use a trimmed Q-tip, which I still thought was a bad idea, but he knows more on the subject than I do. Turns out that if I just used 2 drops of water in the first place, I wouldn't have had a problem.

Yeah, that's why I use distilled water, but i'll probably just use rubbing alcohol in the future.

Just be careful. We want your lasers to last. Just try to resist the erge to "fix Something". It might not be broken

The benefits to using alcohal over distilled water, if you accidentally added a little to much alcohal when cleaning it will evaporate faster than water making the drying time significantly less, and less risky of using an aid to dry it your self with an abrasive surface.
