Tj soft top window cleaning...

Any reccomendations on some household product that work well to clean the soft top windows on my tj??.. Can you use a glass cleaner like windex or is there other better solutions? Thanks!

Simply a mild warm soapy bucket of water combined with a soft slightly moistened cotton towel is best. Rinse off as much dirt as possible before wiping them with the cloth as the dirt will scratch the plastic. Remember to never use paper towels on your plastic windows. Paper towels are made from wood products and they leave tiny scratches in the plastic every time you use them. Before long, you've got a fogged/hazy plastic window resulting from the use of those paper towels. No squeegees either as they'll simply drag any any dirt present across and scratch them as well.

When you have a choice, buy American.

You can buy plastic window cleaner. It's common for soft-topped cars. I used one that was a wax-type substance that you rub on. It worked really well, but I don't remember what it was. You can also buy these sprays.

i agree with wood. i suggest a microfiber cloth if you clean them with a normal window cleaner.

I read some where that pledge (the furniture cleaner) works good on soft top windows. You may wanna do a search.

Ive heard that pledge or pinesol works. I bought the plastic X window cleaner which is like a wax that cleans it perfect.

No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van
