Hi I was just curious what you all did with your scrims when you buy them in.


For as long as I've been cleaning windows, we have bought in a yard of scrim, and cut them into four more manageable sized cloths. Then just re-hemmed them.


Not my favourite job, but it does help. We then soak and dry them until they soften up. We change our cloths over so we are always using dry cloths, and generally use one or two cloths per house.


I have seen all sorts with cloths, some people using bear towels and loads just using the full yard of scrim.


What do you all do?

I use the unger blue ones not the brown ones, a lad that used to work for me used one brown one for a whole day. N i used 4/5 blue scrims. There gud but i hate the feel of them lol

Biggest pity is that scrims are at their very best just one day before you put a hole in them & they start to rip to pieces.


Been using microfibres for years - sills when wfp, but for squeegee work I still like a scrim.
