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).

      Comments about Pearstone Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, 18% Gray (7 x 7.9"):

      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

                One side has plastic bumps on it

                Comments about Pearstone Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, 18% Gray (7 x 7.9"):

                I kind of bought this on impulse and didn't realize that one side has plastic bumps on it until I got it. I should have read the description more thoroughly. I would rather just have a plain cloth. What I do like is that you can include it in a picture to set white balance with in post processing because of it being 18% gray.

                    I mean it's okay it does what it's supposed to. I just bought it because it was the first on that came up. I personally don't like the grips on the one side because then you have less usable cloth. Other than that this is quality cloth that does what it's supposed to.

                    Bottom Line: Good Material

                    I decided to purchase the Microfiber cleaning cloth on a WHIM. What a great idea. When I got this cloth, I found that it not only cleaned my camera lenses perfectly, but also my TV and computer screens. What a fabulous product!

                                      It only has one usable side, I don't find the grip pattern useful compared to normal rags. It seemed to smear more than clean, even with lens cleaner applied.

                                          The grip-surface is a great feature. I actually use the cloth for my eyeglass lenses more than for my camera lenses. I will have to include a few more with my next order.

                                              Grips on one side of the cloth make it very easy to clean camera lenses and IPAD screen. size of the cloth is just right for placing in my pocket and using as needed during shoots.

                                                      The cloth sheds and is not easy to use. I do not care for the rubberized backing.

                                                          Not that I use it for WB but the cloth itself is excellent.
