These are the only cloths I trust to wipe down my violins after each and every use
One would think that a polishing cloth is simply no different than any other rag or cloth used around the house, but the Glaesel Orchestral Polishing Cloth is fundamentally different in its design and formulation. These polishing cloths are designed to be lint free and tightly woven to produce a cloth of the very highest quality musicians demand for physical contact with their precious instruments. I own four violins, average price is approximately $2,400.00 each and are constructed of the finest woods from around the world. I would not allow just any cloth to touch these instruments with the exception of the Glaesel Orchestral Polishing Cloths. Each of my violin cases has its own Glaesel cloth, as well as a special one used purely for the application of a spot of polish once per month on the violins I use most often. I purchase theses cloths for nothing other than my instruments and they are used until soiled and then disposed of. I do not wash them out of concern of getting a piece of sand grit embedded into the fabric. I understand that this sounds somewhat over the top, but the Glaesel cloths are as precisely made as my instruments to function perfectly.

Not so great.
By Philip Shanks
The one that I bought left fibers all over my instrument and my case. Possibly it was just the one that I ordered and the rest are okay but from just knowing how mine performed, I would not recommend it. I would recommend the Shar Micropourous Super Cleaning Cloth - Untreated. I bought it at the same time and it works beautifully. It leaves no fibers and it polishes my instrument to a shine just by itself.

The painted on logo is large, thick, and rough
By Michael A. Crane Jr.
I like these Glaesel polishing cloths... but the over-sized product logo eats up a lot of what would otherwise be useful polishing cloth.
The painted on logo is large, thick, and rough, and could scratch a delicate surface if that large area is accidentially used. Thus, I knock off one star for an otherwise 5-star product.
