Default Where do you get lint free (microfiber) clothes?

Where do you guys get microfiber clothes for cleaning up the TIM off of CPU's and heatsinks?

I used to use ones that came with glasses but I have since ran out and am looking to pick up like a pack of 50 or something

I used the cloths used to clean glasses. Sad thing is that after a few uses, the cloth is starting to degrade and the material is like coming off.

Also seen them in Wal-Mart few days ago. It was in the automotive section, 3 large ones for around $12.

You can also get them when buying LCD cleaning kits, or similar products: NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Great Technology, Service and Selection.

Everytime you buy something from newegg you get one. I have a good 1/2 dozen of them so far.
