    Re: Window cleaning question

    The grab comes from material choice. I never use a glass cleaner, other than denatured alcohol mixed down with water if I need to cut glass. Water is all I use, maybe a watered down ONR solution....but if you use a towel with a low nap, like a microfiber glass towel then that's my wet towel, just damp really, I then use a plush Korean made microfiber for final wipe and buff. My other method is a wet application while using a silicone squeegee to wipe away excess moisture, then buff dry.

    Re: Window cleaning question

    Try some different towel choice or hit it with some spray wax.

    Spray wax on exterior sure but not on interior glass.

    Re: Window cleaning question

    I will revisit that squeegee method and dig my cotton towels out of their bin. Now that the humidity has subsided a bit here I expect to get much better results than I did in the summer.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Re: Window cleaning question

    So a cotton or terry towel would be a better choice then a mf or waffle weave?

    Re: Window cleaning question

    I have both. My plan is to initially clean with the microfiber and follow up with the cotton if Iím still getting streaks Iíll do this as I wait for my zap cloths and glass PFMs. One of these combinations ought to yield the desired result.

    Works good on interior glass.
