    does anyone use these cloths bought locally from a shop. im going to give them a go, but would like to try one first, any hints. have you started using them, what are the results. rinsing scrimms out is knackering my skin on my hands. theres so many advertised, ebay- amazon, they all do the same thing. there seems some good 40 / 40 sized ones around.

    Always hated microfibres, always use scrims... I've enever had to ring one out, never had one get really wet during a day. Never use more than one really.

    Theres the major difference really I use micros cos I prefer them but get through loads. Got one of the new Unger ones with the scrubber pockets in the corners but don't really like that although its mint for sills etc.

    micro fiber cloths I think most people would agree soak up and hold more water than scrim generally. Some people love them some people love scrim more.
    I like using micro fiber for wiping my frames, lead windows and :Image4: sills, like using scrim for detailing.
    Bit like ecover v original fairy or whatever else window cleaners like to use its down to personal choice I think
