They do good quality waffle weave glass cloths also at paragon. The fishscales, sounds like you weren't using enough glass cleaner for lubrication. They are more absorbent than typical waffle weaves, more aggressive glass cloths also so I like using them initially then doing a second wipe down with a waffle.

Yeah, you don't really want lots of long fibres for glass. Look for a proper glass cloth - makes a world of difference.

A good technique is just as important.

Their are currently 2 leading techniques the 2 cloth method and 3 cloth method.

I use the 2 cloth method, get yourself a thick MF and a short pile MF glass buffing cloth

2 cloth method
Use the thick one to clean, so spray with glass cleaner and wipe the grease and grime of the window then buff of the streaks with your short pile.

3 cloth method
Use the thick one to clean, so spray with glass cleaner and wipe the grease and grime of the window then with the second cloth wipe up the excess then with the 3rd cloth buff of the streaks with your short pile.

I use a non branded Korean plush Edgeless MF as the plush https://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-...727151209.html

And lidls glass cloths 2 for £1.25 for buffing

I have fish scale types & waffle weave which have all work really well. Recently I've discovered that twisted type of drying towels are superb with a glass cleaner, dry not after being used to dry the car. I have a grey one 16x16 from in2detailing intended for wheels plus the smaller sized Gyeon Silk Dryer. Both are ideal as they have a good degree of bite and don't lint.
