cleaning soft windows with pledge???
 
Could of swore i read that somewhere on here. Dont want to use windex, afraid of dis-coloring. Any tips would be great, thanks

Could HAVE sworn, not"could OF swore"..... :)

I wouldn't use Pledge on my furniture, let alone jeep window (it leaves a wax residue). I use soap and water,period. Once in awhile, I'll clean the inside with a spray cleaner made for this type of window. Right now I have a can of this: http://www.mypilotstore.com/MyPilotStore/sep/1150

or....Pledge works for a quick fix. It'll lighten back up in a few weeks but usually will make them pretty clear for a while. Just make sure you combine JeffBowser's advice too and use a light soap/water mix to clean them first so you aren't just buffing the dirt into the plastic.

Clean with soapy water, spray on pledge, lighly buff to white glazed look, grab new cloth, buff, enjoy the lemony freshness

I used pledge on a long trip across the US and back, it clears up the windows pretty good, but as mentioned, it doesn't really seem to last very long (more than a week or two for sure, but not a long time). I rinsed mine with warm water and a clean towel to get all the grit off, then once it was dry I used pledge and a small cloth, it seemed to work real good, and does make it fairly easy to quickly whipe off any dust or dirt that gets on there afterwords... for a little while anyway. Pledge is pretty cheap though, and you can get it just about anywhere, so that's nice.

Best Top vinyl window cleaner?

There are different Pledges out there.

I would not use yellow, but orange Pledge leaves a lot less wax residue and has a citrus based cleaner in it. I have used that a few times before storing my windows and it works great.

McSomethin's "Plastix". Autozone has it. I found out about it here on JF somewhere, and it works great. I just used it like a week ago. No discoloring, and the windows are now much clearer. I have pics in my build but they don't do much justice.

I use it every once in a while after cleaning my windows up really good with soap and water. Make sure they're dry then hit them with the Pledge (the orange is my favorite).

It's Meguiar's Plastx. I got some of that and I like the Pledge better. But, to each his own :D

We use to use Pledge or Honda Clean in the spray cans on Motorcycle fairings and windshield Worked great

Thanks everybody

I used a headlight cleaner on my soft windows...was AMAZED at how well it worked...I can actually see out of them now! Does a great job of "de-hazing" them and removes minor scratches!

Same here..........also wipe down your dash and door panels with the pledge rag...........smell the freshness!
