    I know this is more of an accessories post, but I thought I might get some good advice from my fellow X-Metalites.

    I just recently bought the Hydrophobic Pen kit and had a couple of questions:

    1) Is the coating safe if I use eyeglass cleaner after treatment?

    2) After I apply the coating, I noticed it leaves an oily film after I try to buff it off with a microfiber cloth. Am I using too much or not buffing it off enough?

    3) Is one coat usually good enough, or do you use multiple coats?

    Thanks ahead for replies!

    How long do you wait to let it air dry? I usually wait about two minutes, perhaps I should wait longer?
