Just a tip for cleaning plastic windows

So last night I was over at my friend's house and we were talking about how his dad had to pay a bit over $20 to have his headlights cleaned for inspection. I looked at the lenses and said I could do better than the shop did. So I got a can of Brasso and some paper towels and 5 minutes later, sure enough, the lenses were much clearer.
Later while my friend and I were working on his Jeep, he looked at the plastic windows on the top. I'm sure you've all seen them...the plastic windows that are all fogged, scratched, and dang near impossible to see out of. He asked me if the Brasso could be used for the windows.
So we tried it. I've had a lot of success with Brasso on a lot of different things, but I really didn't think it would work on the Jeep windows.


It did. You can now see perfectly out of them. The scratches are still there, but much smaller. The foggy appearance is all but gone as well.

A can of Brasso is about 3 or 4 bucks, then another 2 bucks or so for a roll of paper towels. It's cheap, and it works well. Just thought I'd pass it along.

Meguires Plast-X works good for keeping them from scrtching, if you do it every car wash

Every car wash? Now who's gonna have time to do that?

It does a good job, but I only do it two or three times a year.
