    Hi all,

    I have been reading about the best cloths to use and trying to find out for myself what is best to use for my window cleaning. What type of cloth is best to use for specific jobs and what cloths out there are worth their money. Recommendations, tips, tricks, cheap deals and any information you have that will help others decide what is good too use and not and more importantly what cloths best designed to use for specific jobs.

    I think it would be nice to have an up to date thread with information in from many of the guys that come on here as there is a wealth of knowledge here, for people like myself and plenty of other newbies whom come on here wanting information on products.

    Hope you all can leave your finds and recommendations below.

    Thanks!!!!

    im another that relies on Scrim . its the only cloth i use/ own 104 of them /wash 30 + every night

    i always buy Unger grade A scrim, however a recent batch i bought wasnt up to the usual standard even after breaking it in its no good :(

    I spent 0ver £500 on tools and ladders etc 2.months ago..still spent more this month
    Gonna buy something every month
    I know taytay likes those cloths but I find any of the right kind of microfibre does the same job

    Have you tried microfibre boar?

    I use 1 per day if the weather is ok
    If weather is wet can use up to 3 a day
    Damp ones just sit over passenger seat to dry
    Used to use tons of scrim
