Old Leica Lenses and maintainence


I have old Leica lenses from the 1930 - 1950

I have them stored right now in my home in a bookcase with the lenses standing up and no lens caps on thought the light would be good in preventing moisture and fungus

I live in South Florida and in the home have air conditioning on

Is this the best method of storing them to prevent fungus and problems

Also, if some of the lenses look cloudy is there a good way that I can clean them

thanks very much
