One of the main questions we are asked is:

How do I clean plastic?  What products should I use?

Mostly this applies to acrylic and polycarbonate - the most common plastic used in windows, covers, display pieces etc.

The best way to clean these plastics is with a clean microfibre cloth and water .  
You do not want the plastic to scratch so the softness of the microfibre cloth is the best cloth to use.  Try not to use any harsh items on the plastic such as brooms or newspaper.

Always use a liquid of some sort - plain water is best or if you need some soap, just a mild detergent diluted in water will also be fine.

You can remove any larger particles off the plastic by blowing air across the surface - just to ensure there is nothing left on the surface that could scratch your plastic before you clean it.

NEVER use a dry cloth to clean plastic - this will only put scratches into it.
Harsh chemicals such as methylated spirits, mineral turpentine and paint thinners will only cause the plastic to discolour and scratch over time.
