Clean Perspex or plexiglass by choosing a cleaning solution, scrubbing the area with a rag, rinsing the plexiglass and buffing out any scratches. You need a buffer, a non-abrasive cleaner, two clean cloths and water.
- Evaluate the dirt level of the area
Inspect the dirt levels on the plexiglass to determine what to use for cleaning. A little dust only requires water, while thicker layers of grime require a cleaner.
- Avoid certain cleaners
Avoid using cleaners that contain abrasives, solvents or ammonia. For instance, do not use traditional glass cleaner, acetone, halogens or ketones.
- Wet the cloth
Get a non-abrasive cloth for cleaning. Wet it with the water.
- Add the cleaner
Place a little cleaner on a small portion of the wet cloth.
- Scrub the plexiglass
Scrub the plexiglass with the portion of the cloth containing the cleaning solution. As you scrub, rotate the cloth to a clean side, and add more solution.
- Wring out the cloth
Wring out the cloth, and add more cleaner as needed. Continue this process until the entire area is clean.
- Rinse the area
Soak a new cloth in clean water. Rinse off the plexiglass with the cloth until all the cleaning residue is gone.
- Buff out any scratches
Buff out any scratches using a buffer.
