Kimwipes are now called Precision Wipes. They are manufactured by
Kimberly-Clark, hence the former name of Kim-wipes. At least, I think
these are the same thing.

There are also AccuWipe's from Fort James Corp. These say low-lint on
the box.

We go through many boxes of these at the University where I work. We
provide these along with refillable spray bottles of glass cleaner,
in the undergraduate computer labs. It never ceases to amaze me how many
people simply cannot use a computer without caressing the screen with
their fingertips. I guess they really* love computers...
