    For car or home glass, newspaper is one of the best things to use to clean them. Lint-free. Old car detailer's tricks!

    Oh yeah, I know that one and have used it plenty. But it's not getting anywhere near my optical glass.

    Oh Hell No!

    I keep lots of newspapers around for cleaning the windows of the house. Wife prefers to use paper towels on her car windows. She can't understand why my windows look so much better that hers!

    Yep, really.

    It never entered my mind that you would be dumb enough. Was I mistaken?

    The reality is the question was "what is the best way to clean glass?" All answers thus far have been good ones.. Perhaps the question should have been: "whats the best way to clean some scrungy ass scope lenses?"

    Sure, that was the title, but it's in the optics area of the Forum, and in the OP there is NO mistaking that I'm asking about cleaning glass of a scope.
