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.
