    Re: Newspaper to clean windows

    it costs less right? i heard that anything papery used in cleaning or wiping glasses works wonders to most!
    I hate last-minute shopping, it's always unsuccessful.

    Not sure if this was already stated, but back in the day, newspapers worked great. Now most if not all, use a soy based ink and with that, the effectiveness has gone away.

    At one time I used newspapers to clean my windshield with, but after a while I began to notice fine scratches in the glass.

    Or the right light. Just when you think you have it licked the light changes and, "Oh, gosh darn it, where did that come from"?

    Paper can and will eventually scratch glass. Never use paper products/tissues on your eyeglasses. Over the years I have tried many products. Meg's D120 Glass Cleaner is by far the best I have found, using MF towels to apply/remove. And since it dilutes 10:1 it's CHEAP.

    I use Cobra Microfiber Glass towels I bought through Autogeek and there's no lint and they work exceptionally well. When they start to become soiled I wash them and once dry they're ready to use over and over.

    NEVER EVER use newspaper. your mf towels are probably of really bad quality. news paper leaves ink and actually leaves little scratches behind. go try a better quality mF towel. but dont use news paper EVER
