    anyone finding that scrim cloth leaves fibres on windows and this is pretty washed already

    micro fibre although wilts after a while with water absorption is so much better

    They take a good few washes until they properly break in

    Micro-fibre fishscale cloths are the future!

    Honestly about 5 or more , I've heard soaking them in bleach overnight but I've never tried it, it helps also to work with and then wash them each night as annoying it might be at the start

    I found the scrim needed a good few washes to reach max workability.
    I have recently got the unger (blue and green) micro fibre clothes I must say after one wash the a great.
    I now only use scrim to cover windowsills.

    I use scrim and when I get them I boil them for around 30 mins then hot wash twice, rarely have a problem

    It depends where you dry them. If your using same tumble dryer as clothes go in you'll get some dust on the glass without a doubt
