    I've used microfibres from starting off as a guy I know used to be a windie advised it (said there was really no difference), now I'm not having any problems with them, they do the job ok but I'm wondering what everybody else's thoughts are and what you all use as I'm gonna order 10-20 and might go with scrims now but not sure.

    Just thought a few replies might help new members as well.

    Don't forget to vote so everyone can see what most windies prefer.

    And thanks.

    I can't vote. I use both but only paragon blue glass cleaning ones. Must admit never tried an old vest but have just dug one out and will try tomorrow lol. I find with the paragon micro there quite thick and I can use it one day & dry it and use it the next. My scrim I only use for 1 day then wash it.

    1 and 2, scrim for edges, micros for leads and fanlights too small for the blade

    Microfibres are terrible.
    Small. Absorb water terrible, the water spread through the whole cloth resulting in a lot less usage to ruin them.

    last month I had been using the same scrim for a fort***ht and never had to wash or anything, kept going and windows were fine!

    Scrims for president yo.

    I know they absorb water, but they do it terribly... ie. it soaks the cloth through. lol
