Posted by gibbouk (gibbouk), 12 August 2003not 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.

it still leaves marks on glass,
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 17 September 2003I have used them for a while but i would not buy any more as i prefer scrim.
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 17 September 2003 wwell 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!
Posted by The_Fed_Man (The_Fed_Man), 17 September 2003Practice 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 use a good rubber and fairly light pressure.
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 18 September 2003 going back to the scrim! there is an art to having a scrim just right! cant to wet,cant be to dry,so how do you know, years of cleaning windows mates! :
