Faceshield Cleaning, Suggestions ?

I've tried many things to clean my helmet's faceshield, automotive window cleaner (no amonia), honda polish and now Monster's flatscreen tv cleaner. This stuff works great and the shield is very clear !!! It comes with a micro-fiber towel and won't scratch the surface.

I been trying auto glass wipes from Wal-Mart. The result has been mediocre.

My brother in law uses soapy paper towels in a ziploc bag. Works much better.

Meguiars makes 2 products..

MEGUIARS #17 & #10 Auto Plastic Cleaner & Plastic Polish: Clean and clarify clear plastic automotive surfaces with meguiars plastic care detailing

I use them both on both my windshield and on my helmet visor..both products were recommended to me by an airplane owner who uses them on his airplane windshield..

Why Motorcycles? Because Golf, Soccer, Football and Baseball only require One Ball

use liquid dish soap (not hand soap)

use liquid dish soap (not hand soap) and sponge over face shield with clean sponge, rinse off with hot-ish water, dry with coton cloth

no paper towels

no waxes

no polishes

I've been using Plexus because I still have the same can I bought 3+ years ago. Cleans well, but I'm not real happy with how well it sheds water. I am also quite certain the rumors are true: that it is just Pledge. So I won't be buying it again - I'll just use Pledge.

I'd like to grow some balls and use RainX on my shield. But apparently if you use RainX on a plastic shield it will explode, release radiation, and create hoards of zombies. At least that is what the internet has told me.

I use these as well on both the windscreen and face shield.
A wet, warm towel helps soften up the bug guts on both followed by Meguiars cleaner then polish. Works great for me.
