No Nos would be ammonia based cleaners like windex, no rain x, Strataglass recommends the Imar line of products. theres a cleaner and a polish. 'before using these woolite is recommended for initial cleaning. Lots of water to rinse grit off and microfiber wipes for cleaning and polishing.

We were told by our canvas people, 2 different ones, to use boat soap for the isenglass and regualr dish washing liquid can be used for the canvas part. Obviously we use all boat soap. Then I use the 210® Plastic Cleaner/Polish and 210 PLUS® Plastic Scratch Remover Cleaner/Polish. Both are wonderful products and I use a soft cloth for both. Our isenglass is 5 yrs old on the aftdeck and still looks great!
