    Another little tip if your not already doing it!!!

    Instead of using scrims to do your rag work use ecloths glass micro fibre set.
    One cloth is more abrasive than the other so you use the harsher one damp to clean off the window and the fine cloth dry to dry off and polish.
    Windows come up a treat. :D

    I bought an e-cloth the other day.

    It was much smaller than I am used to. The Unger and similar are 50 x 70cm, the e-cloth was like 50 x 40cm. I like having the bigger cloth and a thicker cloth as well.

    For those who use the e-cloth, don't you find it is a bit on the smaller side?
    Being smaller it isn't as absorbent.

    Micro-fibre's are naff. Tried them all. But when you need a scrim, you need a scrim.

    I had a free microfibre cloth from unger,believe me scrims are better.
    Maybe if i had only ever used microfibre cloths i would prefer them.
    I also bought a ninja blade from unger stand at NEC you need to be a ninja to use it.

    Do not like microfibres, don't assume I haven't tried alot. But when a scrim works and is quick enough, why change?
