Recommend cloth for cleaning interior windscreen

I am having problems cleaning the inside of windscreen.

Just used Nilglass spray, spread with a Paragon Fish-Scale MF cloth and then wiped with short-pile MF cloth.

The glass looks really clean, but, when the sunlight catches the windscreen then you can see what look like tiny hairs/bits on the glass.

I am guessing that these are from the MF cloth I used to buff with.

Can somebody suggest what cloth I should be using to avoid this happening, please?

Buff with another fishscale cloth, even then I find I get the little hairs, it's extremely annoying when the glass is clean apart from the tiny little bits of pile. I'm going to try one of my Polished Bliss utility towels to see if the closed loops help....

I bought a pack of these Paragon cloths and I'm not too impressed, sure they OK to clean with but they are very grabby, impossible to buff with. Personally I prefer a waffle weave cloth.

Unless you've done so I'd recommend washing your MF cloths before first use, this should minimise any fluff coming off them.

E-cloth for glass, no bits and easy to use. I noticed the same problem as you in sunlight, the E-Cloth put an end to it in one go, no re buffing.

I suspect the same characteristic that makes them good at cleaning also gives them a somewhat grabby nature.

I also suspect that the fishscale cloths pick up a little bit of pile from any open loop cloths that may go in the wash at the same time.

Might have to give the e-cloth a go (which is just another variant of microfibre as far as I am aware) if the closed loop idea doesn't work.

I am going to try an E cloth,tried loads of glass MF's and have yet to find one that works really well.

Interesting Have a good Glass Towel im trying at the moment - close looped mircofibre always leaves fibres for me - fishscale are ok but dont always do a perfect job - a ecloth style cloth is what i have so will update a little more as i use it -

Could always give the tried and tested scrunched up newspaper technique a go I suppose
