Will try the vinegar tip. There is always some dirt on the nose cushions though. Unless you get somebody to switch them out for new ones every now and again.
I have a small el cheapo "Watch Repair Kit" - the screw drivers are great for fixing/tightening spectacle frames etc. Just take the pads off and clean them. All my friends get me to do theirs. Most people have a screw loose somewhere ! - I have a supply of new nose pads. Also frame screws. Order stuff online from HK or China

Another tip - if your frame screws are coming loose then put a bit of clear nail polish on them when you tighten them up and it will stop them coming loose.

And here's one of my top tips: when you get dirt and grime building up between the frame and outside of the lenses, it's difficult to get rid of, the best solution is take a business card and with one of the edges run this around the interface between lens and frame. This will pick-up and remove the dirt.

In Jermyn Street yesterday I noticed an opticians called Cubitt offering custom gold frames. Online they seem to offer reasonable price off the shelf frames, though mostly not to my taste - but the custom prices are below what Crapton would pay

and their video looked interesting

and they are not Luxxotica.
