Yeah I did not receive any either, but in an email reply, they told me to go to the web site for instructions. Not a big deal, but a simple small piece of paper with the link to the web site would be nice.

Still impressed with the cloths. Glad I bought some.

Mine did come with directions but I ordered mine from another site. Same prices.

I doubted that they would work as advertised. I just used them on my Cadillac CTS that just came back from the body shop (imagine the dust). These ultimate cloths worked as advertised. Zero streaks even though I did a really fast wipe down. My son even asked me if I had my window down as they were that clean!

I bought 2 initially, think I will buy a few more. On a side note, they don't look like much, really, almost like a folded paper towel but it isn't paper and it definitely works as advertised!

Default Windshield wonder

My wife bought me this to clean the inside of our windshield on our deeply raked Honda Civic! Has microfiber bonnet on swivel handle. Came with extra washable bonnet and a spray bottle to slightly dampen the fiber and it works great. You had to be a contortonist to clean the windshield before but with the swivel head it works great. She bought it at a "As seen on tv" retail outlet for $12.

It is completely reusable and washable. This is one of the best inventions since the paper towel and lasts forever (5 year guarantee).



Why do I need 5 if they last forever?

I also found a 5 towel minimum.

You can order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12, 20, 50, up to you. We sell 5 more than anything. Most guys keep one in their Vette, one in the shop, one in the kitchen, etc, etc. Many, many uses. Please don't knock the product if you haven't tried it.

No instructions in mine either. These are good to clean with, after I use them, i like to "buff" the windshield with some blue shop rags (heavy duty paper towels) that really takes off the film/streaks, and just about anything else.

I just got a set of Opti-cloths, Regular Cloths, and a "Bad Boy", which is made big to clean your car/boat/RV. I can personally vouch for these cloths, and I might make a video, because I couldn't find any real good videos online.

I agree just mist the window and use microfiber also a little spray wax on the outside is a good idea

This reply will not be welcome by the OP, but this suggestion may be the answer to clean windows:

Buy a gallon bottle of liquid soap ($2), which will make about 20 gallons+ of useable soapy water.

Brush soapy water on glass to remove residue.

Squeegee the soapy water from glass. No need to wipe.

Watch any professional window cleaner..... all he uses is a cleaner, squeegee, and a towel to wipe squeegee clean after each pass.

Happy customer, here. A couple of comments, can't over emphasize how dry they need to be to work best. I don't think you can get 'em dry enough just wringing. I roll 'em up in a paper towel then fold 'em in quarters and put 'em in a pint Ziploc.

I live in a area with hard water. When I wash mine by hand I do a final rinse and wring in distilled water

These aren't micro-fiber in the conventional sense. They have the feel of stiff paper

For exterior [ not for interior with plastic tint ] 0000 steel wool is the best window cleaner you will ever get. Its like clay bar for paint. You may think the window is clean but its not. You will feel when its really clean as it will glide like a wet butt on ice.

Your eight-year old Corvette still has the glue from the window sticker on it???

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 them 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!
