My bf is getting me one for my birthday. It's the OEM Mercedes version. I'll be on the road when I receive it and I'm sure I'll get fingerprints all over it while installing it.

I remember reading about someone fogging theirs by cleaning it with the wrong "juice".

What's the right stuff to use to clean the plexiglass?



Thanks

I use Glass "Magic Cloth", the cleaning system that uses two cloths-one dampened with water and one to polish off.

Works a treat and doesn't scratch, leaves it gleaming.

I actually doubt you will get any fingerprints on it. It takes 5 minutes to install and you will be handling the "glass" part by the black plastic around the edges.

Is there anything around the house that might be safe? I can't find the Meguiar's stuff locally and am impatient.

I have 1Z Cockpit Premium which says on the label "safely cleans all clear and colored automotive plastic interior surfaces such as dash, trim, door panels, navigation/audio screens, etc... Might that be safe?

You might try Meguiar's Interior Quick Detailer. This is more commonly available.

You got to be careful though because even a microfiber will scratch.

The goal is try to have a clean that provides enough lubricity.

I also agree that windex is a bad idea.

Stop by your local General aviation airport and the Pilots shop should have either Plexus or PlexAll.
Used to clean airplane windows. Has no ammonia or alcohol and a wax lubricant.
Not sure where you are in San Fran, you might try Livermore , Hayward or Pataluma airports.
Good stuff I also use it on my Motorcycle windshield.
