hazy windows
« on: Nov 23, 2015, 09:58 AM »
I just picked up a used Eskimo pop up shack and all the windows have a haze on them.   Is there any way to clean these or am I stuck buying new windows?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Don't use any Windex or Clorox wipes! Your windows will crack and fall out:(  I know, learned the hard way!

Go to NAPA and buy some Meguiars mirror glaze cleaner and the polish.
It is made for plastic (plexiglass) windows.

There also are products made to clean the plastic covers on automotive headlights.

Thanks for the help!  I know I've got some cleaner and polish I use on my motorcycle windshield so I'll give that a try.

Worked wonders on my mom's plastic headlights.  When I started you could barely see through.  When I was done the were almost like new.  Toothbrush and a non gritty toothpaste.  I used arm and hammer with baking soda.
It is MY responsibility to make sure my children can enjoy fishing years from now. Make sure your kids can fish.  If you see something ILLEGAL Contact the Massachusetts Environmental Police Radio Room at 1-800-632-8075 at any hour of the day. They might show up if there is enough staff working.

I would definitely contact Eskimo to make sure you don't hurt them. I would try something like Meguiar's PlastX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish, or any other clear plastic cleaner on it. I was going to try it on my boat canvas windows, but I just ended up putting them away for winter, will try in the spring.

I just used lens cleaner and a magic sponge
to clean my windows and they look like new.
