    I used microfibres before when cleaning and detailing the car and loved them but I found the best way to use them was to have a damp and a dry one.

    You guys swear buy them for window detailing but I can't get on with it at all they don't seem to absorb the water but just move it.

    Any tips you can give I would appreciate also wet/damp or dry use?

    For detailing glass you need to use dry for best results. Most window cleaner microfiber cloths are very large so you use the dry bits of the cloth for detailing the edges.

    Depends what ones you use..the thick pile ones are no good for detailing.
    You want the ones that are smooth
    Glass cleaning ones from wilkos are good and about a pound each
