Accidentally washed my Filters?

Hey team,

So my Polar Pro lens filters accidentally went for a complete wash dry cycle. I cleaned them off and they LOOK ok, but now I'm completely unsure.

Is there any chance that they're still workable? The obvious answer should be "Does the footage look okay?" to which I reply, "my footage always looks awful."

Ha. But yeah. Can that kind of glass survive a wash ride?

If they were in a pants pocket, there's no reason they shouldn't be fine--the cloth would protect them from the worst. You might want to swab them off with 50% alcohol, 50% distilled water, to make sure there's no soap residue on the glass. You'd see the coating start to degrade--if you don't see anything wrong with the glass, it should be fine.

Thanks man!
Appreciate the time. DIdn't know if the heat might do something to the glass, but ti seems to be alright.
