    Poly-carbonate / Acrylic Panels
    For normal cleaning, first rinse the surface with clean water to remove any
    particles of dust or other abrasive materials. Sponge the plastic gently with warm
    water and a mild, nonabrasive soap or a solution of ammonia and water. Rinse
    thoroughly with clean water and dry with a soft cloth. After cleaning, the
    polycarbonate can be polished with a good wax polish applied with a clean, soft
    flannel pad.
    Do not use benzene, acetone, denatured alcohol, or gasoline. These solvents
    soften the surface of the plastic and may cause damage. Also avoid using glass
    cleaning compounds, abrasive cleaners, and hard instruments. Make sure
    cleaning materials are free of grit and other foreign materials.

    For normal cleaning, use products specifically designed for glass
