Good Day Folks,
Does anyone have a recommendation for a high quality (safe for lenses) microfiber cloth that can be purchased in bulk? Sure it's easy to find a large selection of cloths from B&H, or Adorama, or Amazon. But who needs hemmed edges, a sewn-in label or a fancy carrying pouch? I'm looking for something I can buy by the yard, cut to whatever size I want, toss a few in every bag, share some with my photographer or gadget-freak friends, and use to wash the Berlinetta windows (wishful thinking) after a few months in the camera bag.
Thanks in advance,

I always keep handy a microfiber cloth, hanging from my camera
It has saved from many smudges:
However, sometimes I needed a larger sized cloth for a bigger job, like drying the camera and lens from a sprinkle.
I struggled finding a source for good large sized microfiber cloths for lenses.
Fortunately I did not have to go too far.
Since you live in the USA my findings may help you:
Walmart and Target sell them in a variety of sizes, for washing cars!
Just remember that any detergent leaves residues that may harm your lens. So I don't wash them, I send them to the garage and start with a new one in my bag.
My smaller ones I wash in a very mild detergent once a year, after a week-long trip usually into desert areas.
