    I've just taken delivery of some parogon microfiber fishscale glass (detailing) cloths to try out. On first impressions they seem alot better than unger microfiber detailing cloths and work well on getting bug ****/marks off glass too.

    I'm well impressed so far and were cheap for decent size 80x60 cm microfiber cloths :)

    These are good cloths. But, if they are the cloths I am thinking of. They tend too take nicks far too easily and your left with a cloth with little straggles of fibre everywhere eventually. I like the paragon original type. They last forever and do a good enough job...

    Got a builders clean to do this month on a huge house with Georgian windows. Indoors too. What clothes would you recommend for buffing the glass then? The panels being so small I'm not sure a scrim and squeegee would be a worthwhile approach ?

    I think its rough wooden frames and lead windows that they take nicks from. Otherwise they are very good.

    You need a large fineweave to mop and one to buff. I find the older fineweave micros ( the ones that have been washed loadsa times) are best for buffing. I keep banging on about them, but paragons marine drying cloths are excellent moppers.....quite bulky in the hand though, as they are thicker than a traditional fineweave.

    Smaller mate. You could barely get a 6inch squeegee in there and it won't rotate.
