I have become quite fond of the micro-fibre dusting cloths
(developed in Europe). While they are not disposable, they also are
not treated with anything. The dusting cloths can be washed and
reused many times. So far they have not been abrasive on the
materials I have tested, metal wood and glass. I have found them at
my local supermarket, but surely there must be other North American
