    Cleaning windows ... Is it just me?

    I find that I get better results from lightly spraying the cleaner (regardless of what cleaner I'm using) directly on the microfiber, rather than directly on the glass...MUCH better results.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    I have as well. I've been using this cloth that a friend of mine gave me. All you use is just hot water. Works well.

    Must be a Zap cloth.

    Started doing it that way many years
    ago. Way less overspray to contend with,
    especially when doing the interior glass.

    Sure sounds like it. I love mine.

    I also use glass cleaner by spraying it on the MF.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    I have always been a fan of Zap Cloth for interior glass and I usually buy some extras during my Autogeek purchases. I give them away to my customers and my bosses and they are a big hit. For exterior glass I use the Griots Garage glass towel. They are superb.

    The PFM is the drying towel which is also a superb product. Griots makes a glass towel with a PFM dual weave on one side and a satiny tight weave on the other side.
