Not recommended: Contact lens cleaning solution is not recommended to use a re-wetting drop. It contains harsh chemicals to kill germs. Instead use artificial tears which available over the counter. If you have a contact lens in your eye, get the artificial tears that are designated "for use with contact lenses".
