    Kimwipes = lint free paper towels. You've probably seen the little green and white boxes in just about every lab. Indispensable for laboratory work, along with parafilm and blue pads. They feel to rough to me to use on coated optics but people use them any way.

    @av8: no. dont think coffee filters will do it...kimwipes are very thin...almost with the consistency of cheap tissue, but holds together, and doesnt create scratches.

    lens-cleaning tissues at a camera shop are similar to kim-wipes . . .

    Righto. One job I had at a college lab was maintaining the scopes -- epsecially after the sub-idiots used immersion oil on the regular objectives. Polar solvents and kim-wipes.

    High as a kite but effective . . .

    I guess they have a "delicate" grade now. They didn't back in the days when I was in the lab... you sure wouldn't want to use the regular stuff as toilet paper.
