So, I have been using a half vinegar/half water solution to clean my mirrors and windows and it works fine. But my stupid rags leave fuzz all over them!!! I have old PFs and MF cloths, the MF is the worst. The cotton is ok, DH's old socks are ok. Is there something else I should be using either for the cleaner or the rag or both?

Terrycloth works great for me, I get very little fuzz. Using old cheap washcloths. I'm using the same vinegar solution in a spray bottle (plus a few drops of peppermint just for scent).

I love Tupperware's microfiber cloth--well worth the money. No streaks or lint! I tried the cheap ones from the $1 store, but my fingers stuck to them. Good luck.

Best thing to use is newspaper, if you get it. Even the grocery store circulars that are printed on newsprint (not glossy). Let them dry and they can be reused or recycled.

Yep, yep....newpaper works the best when I clean with vinegar. Or cheap coffee filters.

We don't get the newspaper... I could try the coffee filters though if the wash clothes don't work!

I love using a squeegee with a wet cloth with just a drop or 2 of dish washing liquid in the water
