Go to your general avaition airport and buy a product used for small plane windshields. They are also made of the same type material and this is used to clean, polish, cause rain to run off without beading, and to not fog up. There are several brands, Supercoat, All Klear and I am sure many others. They all do the same thing and work great on golf cart windshields as well. And they are usually a reasonable cost.

I use two products on my cart windshield and like the results.
1. Plexi-Clean Acrylic & Plastic Cleaner
2. Meguiar's PlastX Clear plastic cleaner & Polish.
I purchased these at the auto parts store at 466 & 27/441 and they work great.

Be sure and not use paper towels when cleaning your cart plex-a-glass windshield it will scratch the windshield. I use a micro fiber towel and it works great.

Also if you have metal wheels on your cart go to the chrome shop on the Southwest side of the Wildwood exit at I-75 and 44. I use a product The Original Purple Metal Polish. This is to be used on Aluminum or Chrome. I am the second owner of my cart and the wheels needed some help and this stuff worked great.
