Cleaning acrylic surfaces
There are many uses for Plexiglas, including motorcycle helmet shields, commercial aquariums, automobile headlight covers, medical industry applications and other artistic, technological and transportation uses. Plexiglas is flexible and durable, however it scratches easily when cleaned. Use these tips to clean Plexiglas.
- Remove dust and wipe the Plexiglas surface with a cloth dampened with warm water. Do not apply pressure as you skim the dirt from the surface.
- Mix a solution of 1/4 c. (59 mL) laundry detergent with warm water in a gallon (3.78 liters) bucket. Stir with your hand to completely mix the soap and water.
- Wipe the Plexiglas surface with a clean sponge or microfiber cloth that has been immersed in the bucket. Apply pressure to stubborn stains like grease or oil.
- Dry the Plexiglas by blotting it with a dry, soft cloth. Do not rub with the cloth, as this can create scratches.
- Apply automobile wax to the Plexiglas using the pad provided or a soft cloth. Put the wax on in a thin layer. The wax should not be a cleanser/wax combination. Automobile wax helps deflect dirt and dust.
- Buff the wax into the Plexiglas with a chamois, t-shirt scrap or a flannel cloth. If you notice any dust or dirt residue on the Plexiglas, do not rub in that area, as your rubbing motions can scratch the surface.
- Remove static electricity from the Plexiglas surface by wiping it with a dry, soft cloth. Do not apply pressure as you run the cloth across the Plexiglas. Static electricity, unless grounded, attracts dust and other particles to the Plexiglas.
