    Default Windows on soft top

    I just bought a new boat and it has a soft top with clear plastic windows. I am not sure on the best way to clean them without them getting cloudy It seams like I see a lot that are. I have heard of people using pledge. Anybody use a rain-x on them? Any info would be great. thanks

    I used lemon pledge to clean them for years and they looked brand new when I sold that boat 10 years later. I would also use 303 aerospace to protect it from the sun.

    Thanks, is the 303 for the windows? and where can I get it? Should I use anything on the canvas?

    theres 303 aerospace, which is in white bottle with a blue label. use that for the windows. They also make a 303 fabric guard that is good on canvas I believe. It has a green label. It waterproofs the material and protects it from the sun also. I've used it on backpacks and it works great. West marine sells it

    Rain-x BAD
    Windex BAD (fast lane to clouding)

    Pledge good
    soap water soft brush good

    Stratta glass has a cleaner and a polish that is A+

    Soapy water has worked very good for me. 3 years and still clear. The best way to keep them from getting cloudy.... Bug spay is OFF LIMITS No pun intended. When folks dope up have them way a way.

    I use pledge...I also used it on my airplane (so does everyone else) windscreen which is plastic too. It cleans and helps dissipate rain similar to rainex.

    They make a polish especially for that stuff--it looks kind of like a real mild liquid car wax. Can't remember the brand name but it is easy to find at West Marine or other boating supply stores.

    Again, 303 is the thing to use. If you try to use something, or are thinking of using something else, if the bottle/container says its flammable, do not use it. petroleum products are not good for use on vinyl.
