What is a good way of cleaning the lenses of a refractor. Should i use a lens cleaning solution?

I purchased a kit from Orion for about $15 The kit contains two packs of super soft lenses tissue, special fluid, camel hair brush, blower and instructions for cleaning...

You should clean lenses as little as possilbe. Tiny dust particles have little effect on performance but scratches from improper cleanning do. If you have a high end reractor such as Astro Physics or TMB you can go the the Yahoo users' group and ask the manufacturers directly.
