+8 on the plexus... It's pricey, but great stuff! It's a cleaner and polish. I've used it on yellowed headlights to get them close to new. 2nd place goes to Novus...

Plexus. Been using it on Aircraft windshields for 30 years. Motorcycle helmets. It works great on the entire vehicle. Makes dust and dirt slide right off.

I can use this stuff on any clear plastic, even the piece that goes over the radio display? That seems to scratch by just touching it!

Be careful on motorcycle lenses. Some of the new ones have antifog film on them. Plexus will eat it away almost instantly. I first came across this while working at a paintball shop. This stuff worked wonders cleaning older lenses but will completely destroy any modern lens. Basically DO NOT use it on any treated plastic such as LCD screens.
