When I used Aquapel I had success using paper towel at first (which left smearing/haze behind) and then finishing up with a microfiber towel. I think at that point the paper pulled the excess and helped spread any leftover product over the glass before the towel picked the rest up. It all has to be done really fast, Aquapel requires speed to be applied or it will stick like glue.

Having said that, I don't think my McKee's 37 glass coating is much easier to remove. Takes just as much elbow grease. But it allows for more time so I don't feel like I'm rushing so much.
