I would think that how one would use a cleaning cloth for lenses would not necessitate a disseration. Apparently I'm wrong. So, pick up the cloth using the fingers of either hand, make sure that the things on the cloth designed to prevent the cloth of drifting away in a hurricane by making it more gripable are away from the lens (i.e. touching one's fingers) and move the cloth in a circular pattern over the lens until dust, finger prints and other detritus disappear and the lens is clean. What makes this cleaning cloth so worthy of exhaustive comment is that when used as described, it cleans. Yippee!! and thank you for your attention.

I wanted to love this cloth, but I just think it is okay. I love the grips on the back, but it takes some getting used to and it is very small. I also had to use it longer than I expected to get the results I wanted (smudge marks off my lens).

      You can't own too many cleaning cloths, so every time you get a chance to get one thrown in with a purchase - take it!

        Cleans the glass with no particles or smears left behind. Really like the gripping nubs. What more can you ask for? Priced right so bought two.

              I love the rubber grippers on the backside of this cloth to prevent slippage. It works great.

                  the rubber bump texture on the back is nice for grip, but effectively cuts the area available for cleaning in half. So that's cool but also kind of a bummer.

                        I like the idea of one side being for cleaning the other providing a surface to grip the cloth. This prevents inadvertently placing your fingers on the part of the cloth that is being used for cleaning the lens, reducing the probability of oils being placed on lens surface.

                          Haven't used this a lot since I tend to protect my lenses pretty religiously. But the grippy/wipey sides being designated seemed like a great idea to keep finger oils off my lenses.

                              I used this cloth only once, This cloth was part of a package when I purchased my camera. This cloth has grips on one side. Very useful, helps prevent dropping the cloth.

                              Good for what it is. I use a regular gray card, but this could work in a pinch. Does a good job cleaning the front element of a lens and the body.

                                  Often, microfiber cleaning cloths come as freebies with other products. So why buy one? Because this one's is different. The freebies always bunch up in my hand as I use them. It's not terrible; it's just a bit physically awkward. But the Pearstone cloth comes with hundreds of tiny grippers on the back side that prevent it from bunching up (and give you something to hold on to.) The result - a cloth that's much easier to use. My camera's LCD and my computer's touchscreen are much easier to keep clean and smudge free. And the Pearstone cloth doubles as an 18% gray card.

                                        The grip helps from slipping. It wipes off the toughest smudges. Good size
