Hi,

I'm looking voor cleaning paper for my scanner. But I have problemen finding it in stores in my country. This is probably because I don't know what it's called. So the only thing I keep finding are lens cleaning sets that cost a bundel, containing about 10 towels. I'm looking for more then a hundred (big pack). So I figured that it might be easier to find if I actually knew the name of the cleaning paper.

Never use paper products to clean optical glass or lenses. As far as your scanner's glass plate is concerned, paper is an abrasive. This is how it's done: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-c...scanner-glass/

Even AA-50177 paper? If I got this correctly, microfiber cloth can actually only be use once, seeing that you can 't actually clean it. So that woud be a ver expensive undertaking. And using the correct cotton tips woud taken a long time. I know the stort about paper Being wood. But this kind of paper is especially designed to clean lenses. So what am I missing here?

I don't know where you heard that microfiber can't be cleaned, some can, some can't clean so well. A 100% soft cotton t-shirt or piece of clothing is what most hard users employ.

Lens cleaning paper is coated with silicon that leaves a waxy residue, and makes very fine abrasions that accumulatively leave a subtle fog on lens surfaces. I stopped using them when I found out what lens cleaning paper did to my expensive nikon Nikkor lenses. You're not missing anything, but use whatever you wish. It's your scanner.
