I use LP* record cleaning fluid: 1:10 soluton of denatured alcohol and distilled water in a spray bottle and lots of it. I wipe it down with flannel then apply Rain-X.
I don't do it that often, I think people tend to try to keep their windsheilds too clean which, I believe, is the primary cause of scratching.
* LP Records, once predominant, are now a mostly obsolete form of music distribution. They can be found in many thrift stores and at yard sales hidden inside kitchy 12" square cardboard posters. It is in the form of a usually black, 12" diameter vinyl disk with a 1/4" spindle hole in the center. Playback devices still exist for this format but are found primarily in the recording studios of Urban Music producers and the basement apartments of Jazz Nerds. When played back on quality gear, the LP produces a lush soundscape punctuated by pops, scratchy hiss and musical phrases repeated arbitrarily until human intervention intervenes. This is where the expression, "Shut the hell up you smarmy weasel, you sound just like a broken record," comes from. The LP record pioneered the phenomenon of the hidden backwards message, discovered with pharmecutical inspiriation and a reversable turntable by college students in the late nineteen sixties. Musical palentologists have found that chief practitioners of this practice were rock groups like, The Beatles, The Pink Floyd and Winky Sphinkter and the Skidmarx. Nowadays, LP records are often heated up just enough to be molded over one's head for use as a helmet, suitable for riders of certain air-cooled V-twin, powered motorcycles.
