Be sure to read the instructions for the anti-fog cloth as it's not meant for cleaning, it's meant to leave a film on your lens in a very humid environment to stop condensation from forming on it. Be sure to wipe your lens off before using the lens-pen on it or the anti-fog compound will come off onto the pen and ruin it.
The microfiber cloth can be washed. I usually wash my microfiber cloths by hand as my husband loves using all kinds of nasty fabric softeners in our washing machine and let it air-dry and immediately put them in a special plastic bag. I have one bag in my camera kit for clean cloths and one for used ones that need to be washed.
I followed the instructions to the dot. I brushed the lens first to remove the dust and then used my Giottos Rocket Blower to get rid of any other remaining dust. The I carefully fogged up the lens using my breath and ran the cleaning pad left to right. It was amazing. All of the finger prints, grease, grime from over time disappeared.
Then I used it to clean my Schott Glass protected 5D Mark II rear screen using the same method. Results? Amazing once again. The cleaning pen got rid of all of the grime, finger prints from prolonged use. Same results on the mini LCD display on the top as well. However, I ended up getting a small scratch on the LCD. Perhaps it was the deposited dust particle on the felt tip?
I went to clean my 70-200mm f/2.8 IS L II lens and in the middle of cleaning, the tip fell off. Causing me to finish the job with the smaller micro pen. Immediately, I turned to Amazon and they provided a replacement right away. Ever since, I've had no issues so far. Knock on wood. If you own any DSLR or any items with smaller LCD screen, (3DS, Vita, iPhone or etc) this is totally necessary to keep them in tip top shape.

- Cleaning tip fell off after 1 use (Replaced by Amazon)
The retractable brushes in the pens are terrific and store easily. The real plus with these though is the special cup shaped applicator that doesn't require liquids, or chemicals be added and appears to leave no residue behind. It's apparently a non-liquid compound on a natural chamois tip that does the fingerprint removal so well.
The one downside is that the box warns that the MicroFiber Cleaning Cloth is "Not recommended for high quality lenses." and the enclosed directions indicate that it is "For cleaning the HOUSINGS of digital cameras, photo equipment, etc.". Still, it makes a convenient place to sit the lenses as they are removed for cleaning.
Note, enclosed instruction sheet "Important Notice - AntiFog Cloth. Antifog cloths work by applying a special thin film on the lens surface to which they are applied. If you have applied an antifog material to any lens then wipe off the film from the lens surface using a soft dry cloth before using a LensPen. After this is done, use the LensPens to restore the lens surface to a perfectly clean condition. Failure to follow these instructions will cause serious damage to a LensPen." Return cloth to envelope for storage.
...uh what? Damage? What about the lens?
