Plastic Glass Cleaner

What are you all doing about cleaning the soft top plastic, don't want to scratch it, I know that's almost impossible, but any help on this would be great!

I use the Mopar stuff- it's made by Meguiar's, and you can get it right at the parts counter Employee discount rocks Mark W.

I use Meguiars also for most of my cleaning & protective sprays, didn't know it was also sold by Mopar...the best overall plastic glass cleaner (use on plastic cockpit windows on planes and Porsches) --- is Plexus.

i just used the Meguir's Plasticx product. i wasnt as impressed as i was hoping to be. from reading a few peoples posts on here about it, it seemed like it was a miracle worker.

im not saying it didnt work, it did make my windows look good, but just not as good as i was expecting. it cleaned it up, and made it appear more transparent and clear, but it didnt seem to get rid of the scratches like some people claimed.

There's nothing better than Plexus
Introducing Plexus Plastic Cleaner
It's a crossover from the aeronautic world; I used to use it on my motorcycle shields; works on paint too.

There is this stuff called S1000, I used on my motorcycl. It worked really good. I used it on all parts of the bike. I think it will work good on the soft top. Thats what im going to use.

just a little "fyi" that i recently learned from jerry bransford, don't use paper towels on plastic windows b/c they are made of a wood product and they will ruin your windows over time. use a cotton cloth.

Windex on plastic that is transparent is a no no. Use it enough and it will turn your transparent windows to translucent white fogged plastic. I use dish washing detergent and water. An old jeeper that I know swears by it. His clear windows on his OLD jeep look in real good shape. I would use the plexus if mine were scratched up just to see if it improved it's condition. Best to try and not to get it to that point. For mine, simple soap and water will do. AND IT IS CHEAP!

I have found silicone spray works the best for me and is relatively cheaper.

+3 PLEXUS --- one of the things we use with great success in aviation/aerospace.
Used it on my Boxster rear window with excellent results every time.

LOL
