Buy INVISABLE GLASS at any hardware store in spray bottle or aerosol can........also works great on your inside car windows (the blue film).....Wife says it the best and she knows everything...............

I use Invisible glass too and it is really great. I contacted the manufacture about using it on acrylic and they said no. You can try a small spot and see what happens.

Use a little dish soap and water to clean Acrylic, spray it on, then whip with a soft cotton cloth or towel.

Do not use Windex or other window cleaners, this will fog the acrylic after many uses.

We use a product called "Plexi-Clean" Acrylic & Plastic Cleaner.

Probably got it at Wally World, Lowe's or Home Depot.

Default Acrylic Windows

Plexi-Clean works great. Use a microfiber cloth and not paper towels as they will scratch. We clean our golfcart windows with it as well.

How about a recommendation of a person, not a product? Anyone had their windows, including acrylic, cleaned by someone they thought did a good job? I'm getting too old and there is way too much to do in TV!!

I would be interested in that name also. The last time I did the acrylic windows myself, my shoulders ached so bad I could not play golf for a week!

Use Murphy's Oil Soap, couple spoon fulls in water. Keeps the windows fresh and won't dry out due to age and weather. Oops sorry, thats for vinyl slider windows.

You need to train with Mr Miyagi before cleaning the windows again - wax on, wax off!

Call Jim @ 352-633-1645. He did a fantastic job cleaning our windows. Our vinyl lanai windows sparkled we he left. I might add, he was very courteous, very professional, and his fee was more than reasonable.
