    I need to get lint-free or microfiber cloth to clean the screen of my iMac 5k retina as well as for other devices. The iMac came with a black microfibre cloth but I need an extra one or more. Anyone know where to get microfiber cloths of good quality? The patches of cloth for cleaning eyeglass lenses are too small.

    3M has a good 32cm x 30cm microfiber cloth that's meant for wiping computer screens. It's this one (Chinese version):

    It sells for ¥35.8 here in China (₽260.5). It should be available there as well for more or less the same price.

    Yup, those 3M ones are actually very good. I bought mine several years ago from True Value and I still use them till now on my devices such as iPhone, iPad and most recently for the Switch

    Pack of 18s at S&R. Each piece is sized like a gym towel, and priced cheaper on a per-piece basis.

    Thanks everyone for the tips esp. for True Value and S&R, will check these out. And for those interested, I saw some small printed microfiber cloths being sold at that good old sari-sari store, CD-R King, but good mainly for camera lens, phone screens, the like. Their website carries this ad and this one in bigger size but I haven't seen them in their sari-sari store display.

    A tad bit late of a response, but I also vouch for Qin Zhi's suggestion. You can also find them at Ace Hardware in two available sizes - 13cm x 12.5cm and 32cm x 30cm. The 32cm x 30cm retails for around 249PHP. Sadly, I can't remember the price of the smaller variant.
