How do I clean acrylic and polycarbonate?

Acrylic and polycarbonate can be cleaned with a 50:50 mix of methylated spirit and water and a very soft, clean cloth. Never rub off dirt with your hand or with a dry cloth – always rinse or hose of all obvious dirt and grime before you apply a cleaning agent. Avoid any cleaner that contains ammonia.

New acrylic sheet can be protected by a proprietary product such as VuPlex (available from Plasweld). NEVER USE PETROLEUM BASED PRODUCTS ON POLYCARBONATE.
