Maybe it's been asked and I missed it but is it safe for aftermarket tinted windows? I was told not to use anything containing ammonia.

Default tried to order

I just tried to order the darn thing but you want to much personal information. You do not need to know my email address or phone number. Once I give you my email I will be getting junk mail from here on out. Just set it up to where I give you my name and address and credit card.

The credit card company requires that. If it's a fraudulent transaction we have to have a way to contact you. We don't share or sell your personal information.

Which is it??? You tell one guy to wet the windows then the directions say wet and wring out the cloth?

Default not bad

I purchased one and it does a pretty good job. I use it for not only the windows but the whole car when there is just dust on it and I do not want to do a full blown wash. So it's worth the 6 or 7 dollars I paid.

Sounds like the directions on the web site were followed: Use the cloth damp. Simply wet it with water & WRING IT OUT WELL.

Maybe you need to update the sales pitch... I will give them a try anyway. Seems like mostly good reviews on here.

Default It works!

Bought one to try. It works. After wetting and wringing out the water, pat it with a terry towel to get even more water out of it so it is just damp. The darn thing works...

Default clean vette windows

Just received mine last Fri. and tried them Mon afternoon late. I had trouble wringing out enough water to get it damp enough not to leave itsy bitsy water spots on my pickup windows. not sure if they are still visible due to darkness. Is it normal for the little spots and do they become invisible in bright sunlight as in showing your car w/o spots

We got some of these a while back but had not tried them until a few days ago. We just got another car and I washed the windows with windex but there was still some streaking. Rather than going over them again I remembered the cleaning clothes and thought why not give them a try. I got them wet then wrung them out and wiped the windows with them. I have to say I'm impressed, they really did a nice job. Don't know what they would do with a really dirty window but with a mild preclean they did great.

I use a spray bottle to dampen the cloth to clean my windows and then use a 2nd one to wipe the window dry. Outstanding results==no more frustration over streaked windows using the store bought window cleaners.

I spent 5 minutes picking my way through the purchase process....it at first wouldn't add my second towel, but got that figured out. Had to edit the item box....entered my Capital One Venture card number 3 times.....it was declined. Card is a new 'chip' card with all the bells and whistles. I gave up trying to order. Takes too much time and effort.

You tell yourself at that late hour, "damn, I really need to clean the windows". You go home go to bed, wake up the next morning and forget all about the promise you made to yourself about the window cleaning (until the next night drive).

Anyway, I had a customer of mine purchase an exhaust system and he told me about this new Myra Fiber cloth that makes cleaning windows a breeze. Simply slightly dampen it, and wipe....streak free, crystal clear window with no sprays or streaks. Oh, and it lasts forever and is washable. Assuming it was probably a gimmick, I figured I would give it a try....

All I can say is WOW...this thing REALLY does works!!! It wipes your windows perfectly clean. Heck it even wiped off the window sticker glue (my new 09 Z06 that I am so proud of )without any effort.

Guy's, this is not a Gimmick...You are missing the boat if you do not use this handy little towel to clean your windows. It works as advertised, if not better. No more glass cleaner over spray on my dash, ever!!!

I promise you, this will be the best $6 bucks you EVER spent.

They are so good, I immediately purchased a 100 of them, and have then ready to ship out. Order below

The Ultimate Cloth

Order above

Trust me on this one........Just order the darn thing !!!! you will want to personally call and thank me after using it!

David
David, Am I missing something? I ordered a set of these towels and what I received was a five old torn tee shirts. The film left behind was tough to remove. I even tried washing them thinking these old rags had been over saturated in some kind of solution. I finally ended up discarding them. Did I get a bad set? The positive comments lead me to believe what I received must have been different than what others received.
