Best cloth for cleaning glass?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a better cloth to clean my glass with. The car has had gtechniq glass protection applied by Onyx Automotive, and I'm using Gtechniq glass cleaner but with the microfibre I'm using (http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/microf...prod_1298.html) I get a lot of small fibres sticking to the glass. What cloths are recommended? Maybe something "lint free"?

Thanks!

The Purple Monster in your link, I use for drying the car after using ONR. For the windows I've bought and tried many different "glass" cloths but always seem to go back to the cheaper Kent Glass Cloth.

For glass I have always used 2 types but they are very fine compared to the one in your link.

1 is a fine waffle style and the other is also a very fine microfibre that looks like a bigger version of what you get from the opticians for lenses. Both are easy to obtain from the usual retail sites and I've never had any issues with fibres being left on the surface.

I use a fish scale cloth and then buff with a suede cloth. Both can be bought from paragon microfibre

Wo-Wo's glass cloths are really good and very well priced, don't forget the site discount.

I never got on with these fish scale cloths, far too "grabby". I Prefer to use a good waffle weave mf instead.

Yeah I found they were at first and didnt like them but softened up after a couple washes and now I really like them.
