You might try the cleaner thats used on the clear plastic on jeep soft tops. I do know it scratches very easily.

Yes, i use this on a gator windshield. It wipes off and cleans very nicely. Just make sure your rag is clean. Try it on a small section of the windshield if you are not sure about it.

clean with water first gently with your bare hand. pledge works well but there is an avation product called 210 plastic cleaner / polish by sumner laboratories order desk 800 542 8656 . we use this on all our helicopter windows and they last for years. Mind you we are not getting alot of mud on them though. it is expensive but it works awsome on all plastic , goggles etc

I may be able to add a little knowledge, There are no chemicals that are recommended to put on lexan or plexiglass. Just plain soap and water. However if your windshield has something that needs to be cleaned off with more than water
then Toulene may be used without fear of crazing the plastic. Toulene is in products such as 3m adhesive remover. Other than that,
the only recourse is a plastic polish such as Novis or others as mentioned above. Iffen you get scratches and you will sooner or later,
then it is possible to buff them out if not too deep, with a electric buffer and plastic polish.
