I was skeptical about purchasing them. However, given all the positive reviews and tired of having streaky windows I ordered some a couple of weeks ago. Although a little pricey, they do a great job on getting car windows clean. As others have stated, the key seems to be having them completely wrung out before use. My windows have never looked so good. Hope you have success with them also.

Just tried mine. Seems like the key is to use a tiny amount of water. Anything more and you'll leave droplets. Might try a tiny touch of window cleaning solution instead of water next time.

In every case it worked exactly as advertised.
Several times it left some water in which case I just wringed the cloth again and re-wiped and it was perfect.
One thing I REALLY hate doing is cleaning the light fixture in my 2 story foyer. I don't like heights. But I wiped the all glass fixture with this cloth and I was amazed how much dirt it cleaned off. So much easier than using a spray bottle and then switching to the cloth. Even with a 12 foot Little Giant ladder I am at the highest step recommended so I really want to get it done quickly. This cloth did the trick.
I highly recommend it.

If they aren't working for you then you are either using too much or too little water. The magic happens when they are damp but not wet. Also, when they are brand new you have to clean them as it says in the instructions.

Once you learn the right moisture level of the cloth they work far better than anything I've ever used. We even use the big ones on the inside of the house windows.

Has anyone tried spraying the cloth with something like Invisible Glass?

I tried 'em. They work. They work better if you wash them and rinse them really well, then a final rinse in distilled water. Finally ring 'em out completely dry then wrap them in paper towels and wring them again. Store the clean towel folded in a Ziploc.

I tired this and am happy to report that they work as advertised. Impressive!! One note is that they are not like a mircrofiber that is like the others. It's more like engineered paper and thin but it does not tear. The fact is they work and work well. Worth getting the five pack!

Very happy with purchases from Southern! Can't wait to see my side rockers that I ordered.

I had high hopes but found these not to work very well. Have tried all variations of dampness with so so results at best.

If you are like me, washing the windows inside your Vette (or any other car for that matter) is the biggest pain in the butt of the whole cleaning process. There is always that damn film that builds up on the inside of the windows that you do not notice until 12am at night when you are driving home from a party and the oncoming car headlight about blind you because of the film build up on the windows. 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!
