    I remember those days. Some of the service manuals had instructions to put a few drops of silicon oil on the glass and rub it in as much as you could.

    I try to work (and live) ecological, that implies that garbage (plastic) needs to be avoided.

    Re: optics cleaning cloth + platen glass slippery product

    I recall a glass cleaner that looked like "milk", it did both clean and lubricate the glass plate - it was pretty common back in the days but afaik there's just a dealer located in germany who sells a knock of of the original formula. Every know and then a customer ask if we can make the glass plate more slippery, I usually recommend olishing a drop of oil (after cleaning the glass first). Depending on what you're using the glass plate might appear slightly smeary after treatment but that does not compromise the copy/scan quality.

    It's called Brillanize or some sort. It worked pretty well..

    I don't use this much anymore. Newer CIS DF's don't need it.

    you can try "white vinegar", it's cheap, it's good for everything, and it's as ecological as you want, only it smells a bit, I don't know if the customers would like it? I also use it when I wash the moka kettle for coffee, I leave some on the bottom for an hour and then I throw it, and I rinse everything with running water

    white vinegar is great for cleaning windows .. shower stalls ..coffee pots. Been using it for decades for those purposes. I also use in to pickle cucumbers.

    after a while I don't really notice the smell.

    try RainX on platen glass.

    slippery? are you sure the static eliminators are working not damaged?
    Big +1 on the Rainx. That is my go to these days and I still use it from time to time, but mainly as a anti-static measure in paper paths, which it does a decent job at.

    I also used Brillanize back in the day when DF belts were a thing to move paper across the exposure glass. That stuff worked great.

    Silicon oil and Brillianize will make the glass slippery, but also, will help keep fresh ink or white out from sticking to the glass, especially the ‘slit glass’.
