not the best person to answer this cause i hate scrim never got it to work no matter what i did.
micro fibre cloths seem good and i have used it a few times. use a light spray of water on it and it cleans most stuff of glass. pretty good for anywhere you cant use a lot of water.

Winkwwell as steve just said it one!they are not cheap to
buy,I think they are an american thing,after all you ask an american about a scrim,and he will probably give you a joint!

Practice your technique so that you only need your scrim, microwipe or blue towel to touch up the edges. Only clean windows that can't be squeegee'd with a cloth.  Make sure your solution isn't too strong, enough to give glide but don't be Bubble Man Cool use a good rubber and fairly light pressure.

Yeah i agree with Mr Burrows, the yanks do have a different understanding, whilst i was in a bar in downtown Miami having a drink with some of the locals i got my ciggies out and asked in a loud voice weather anyone would like a fag, it whent awfully quiet and i got some strange looks  Grin
