Remove it and leave it home. Or wrap a soft, thin towel in it to prevent chafing. Pledge furniture wax is a great product for preserving and reconditioning the clear vinyl. It's what my friend uses on the multi-million dollar yacht he captains.

Plastic rear windows

Hey,

Also, believe it or not, toothpaste works real good to polish out those unsightly blemishes, etc. Has worked well in the past!

Pledge vs. toothpaste

OK, who should get the McGyver award on this one? That is what I really like about this forum. You can learn so much from every body else.

Lemon is okay. Regular is better, less chemical additive.

Do you use the toothpaste to clean the mud stains off the top? I can wash the top over and over w/ a scrub brush and I can still see the mud stains. I really don't care if they stay on there - was just wondering.

Toothpaste for windows

Nah, it's just a cheap(er) substitute for plastic polish - since it has a mild abrasive polish in it, wouldn't use it for a top...
