    People who wear contact lenses normally use contact lens cases to store them, which is made of plastic mainly. It’s easy to harbor bacteria over time and contaminate the lenses. It need to be replaced two or three times each year. At the same time, it's necessary and important to properly sanitize the case to kill the bacteria monthly. Firstly, you have to wash and dry your hands, and remove the contact lenses and set them aside in clean bowls with contact solution separately. And you empty the cases, and wash them with warm water and liquid dish soap to get rid of dirt and other harmful materials. Then, you fill a cooking pot with water to place the cases on the stove top over high temperature. Next, you put the cases into the boiling water for 5 minutes. In the end, you flip the cases on a towel to air dry them.
