Forget what you think you know about glass cleaners.........I have used them all.........I 'stumbled' onto a product made by Kleenmaster called 'Brillanize'........I have never had better results.....you have to see it to believe it....forget the 'terry' towel......use a micro-fiber cloth.......WOW!

I have been using DWG on my glass for years.
No more cleaners. No more Rain-X.
But I'll look for Brillianize for the house.

For glass, I've been using old newspaper with glass cleaner! That has always worked the best; no streaks, lint, etc. I have been using a micro-fiber cloth for a good 6 years now. They do a most amazing job of cleaning almost anything; and when you rinse them out, all one uses is a bar of handsoap, those cloths come out spotless like the day they were made; even after cleaning down an engine.[:0] I don't have to be sold on one.

Well I know "DWG" as the abbreviation for drawing, does it mean something else? Window cleaner?

Also, help an old guy out here guys, what is micro-fiber cloth, do you buy that in a dry goods fabric store, camera store or where?

Rich,

You are showing your age. You may need to explain to the younger generation what a "dry goods" store is (along with notions and sundries). ;)

David,

You are dating yourself in stating that Ben Franklin was a five and dime. However, they were one retailer that saw a retreating market and reinvented iteself as a craft store. Sadly, most of their original competitors are gone.

To answer the questions, DWG is "Dry Wash & Guard", and it's an auto paint cleaning product. It really does work well. And when you buy it, you get a microfiber cloth with it.

The latter looks kind of like a shop rag, but has a fuzzy, nappy surface like velvet. Works as well well as a chamois for getting water droplets off your car.
