I had herd that using Pledge on the windscreen is good for driving in the rain.After cleaning my Swing,I decided to try it on my windscreen.It made a big change on the clarity of the screen.Then I decided to use it on the tupperware .My Precious never look so good.You don't have to wait to dry and no powder residue .This will be the way that I wax from now on.

Pledge is good, but it gives up its qualities pretty fast. I use it on my tupperware, but on the windshield, I use Mequires Plastic Polish which is good for all vinyl windows and also does a great job on your helmet shield. For me, it lasts two to three weeks.

I bought it at Walmart and a small bottle costs $6.00 and it has lasted two seasons for two motorcycles and my helmets.

I used Mequires to remove cigarette smells in a vehicle that i purchase.It work great but cost $20.00 for a small bottle. I clean my Swing after every ride.Living in the North I sometime clean my shield and windscreen up to 4 times a day and I cary a windex spay bottle and paper towel all the time.Most
riders don't go on the HWay after dust,just go and stand outside a coffee shop looking at there rides. I ride 80KL in any direction to go for a coffee At night and look out for bears and moose.

Someone advised using Pledge furniture polish on the screen,I tried it and wasn't impressed. I found Methalated spirits really clears all dirt off, for every day cleaning i keep a cloth (that i have rinsed in soapy water) in a plastic bag to keep it moist, and a dry micro towel type small cloth to dry off with in the right side cubbie box. It works for me. Smile

Personally I wouldn't use windex on windshield or helmet visor. The ingredients can start to cloud those materials after regular use. I had a friend who had to replace her helmet visor after regular cleaning with windex.

I'm old-fashioned and go with pledge. Easy to find, inexpensive, does a fair job on cleaning and can put a shine on the shine-able parts. May not be the best, but for me its good enough.

Bugs are not yet at there worse.Seen a Bear yesterday and a swamp doncey today.In day light OK at night not a pretty sight.My son hit one a few yrs back at night ,the car was full of ticks the size of grapes .Hot water and wash cloth removes the big stuff,the pledge give it a nice shine,and its quick to do.

I use a product called All Kleer by the Black Lab Corp.Works great on new or dry bugs and all sorts of road dirt. I carry a 6oz bottle at all times. Also works on helmets. Howard http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycle-cleaning-polish/all-kleer/

Water works for me? I keep a butter tub full of clear water with a polishing applicator pad in the tub (lid on). Each time I come back from a ride I just open the tub, wipe off the screen with the applicator pad and dry with a micro fiber cloth. Works great and screen is always clear. Can't beat the cost?

I just finished the spray can of All Kleer. Expensive but it works great.
I am now using a small spray bottle with a few drops of dish washing soap and water. Seams to work just fine.

We have found that the best product for cleaning the windscreen or face shield is a product known as "Plexus". This product is a little expensive, but without a doubt the best product for this duty.

+1 for the Plexus. Excellent job of cleaning all plastic surfaces. It also seems a bit easier to remove bugs from windshield if used on a regular basis. Also hydrogen peroxide is a great bug remover.

For face shields, Novus plastic polish and scratch remover work best for me.
