    What do you need the spray for? I just clean them normally. Lots of detailing though.

    If you mean the small Georgian types,I use my normal solution with two scrims one for damp, one for bone dry to polish up,as if your drawing, run a line across all panes with your applicator clean each with your damp then repeat with your dry to polish up,or start with one scrim completely damp clean each pane then buff,when damp scrim dries out little rub on top of applicator in bucket on belt,use both hands to stop the one aching,job done

    Too much time when you use the spray it take 15 secs that's complete

    I cant comment personally about the best microfibre to use as i use scrims mostly,I have a few cheapies from supermarkets that I rarely use but are still quite good,I think ive heard paragon mentioned on a post on here,there's a thread on microfibers on the trad section,might be worth a look,

    How good does the spray actually clean the glass though
    You need to wash the glass properly same as any other window
    Wilkos do the best glass cloths
    60x80 and only 3 quid
