Default Cleaning rear window question

What's the best item to use to clean the inside of the rear window so I don't damage the defroster grid?

Paper towel? Rag? Cloth?

....what do you use for the other windows? I would think any relatively soft, good quality, lint-free media would do. ....micro fiber, cotton, huck/surgical, task-specific wipes, etc. Preferences vary and sometimes it takes some experimenting to find what works for you.

I like to use a damp microfiber towel followed up with a dry microfiber towel to buff off all the residue. I have tinted windows and this method seems to be very kind to them also.

Any regular window cleaning towel being microfiber,rag or blue shop towels will be ok and wont damage your defroster lines, the only thing I wouldnt use in my own opinion would be regular kitchen paper towels they seem to leave a white lint residue.

I don't know how it would work with the defroster grid but I've always used newspaper with windex. Never really thought about using micro fiber though, got to get me some once I'm done being cheap.
