[:++1] on the on windex, bad stuff, you can go to any car parts store and pick up some tint-safe window cleaner which will do the trick as well

Warm water w/liquid soap all the way!! I don't put soap on the inside though, I figure enough soapy water will run in there to have enough of a effect! I also try not to rub on the inside cause I like my visor fog-free! Also when I'm at gas stations after a long ride I go to the window cleaning stations, dip one of the towels in the glass cleaner and was my closed visor that way!! does wonders to get a massive hoard of bugs off!

plexus is the shizzle. Plexus and a microfiber cloth will keep the shield clean, streak free, and fog resistant for years and years.

When you get a scratch though, if you know what you're doing, Novus makes some acrylic products that can buff them out. Only good for the outside though, dont ever get the stuff on the inside and forget it on mirrored shields. If you dont quite have the technique down, then buying a new shield isnt a bad idea.

I use this Nikwax Visor Proof (Not Anti-Fog) - The Helmet Harbor, LLC. Works great! Hope this helps..

I use warm water and dish soap as well, then pat dry with a paper towel (don't rub with the paper towel).

holy thread from the dead. I would have voted plexus, but have you seen the cost increase in the last few years...

I have been using warm water and soap at home, but I recently discovered that I can also use lens cleaning wipes from ZEISS. Walmart sells those in a box for a reasonable price, and I throw a few in my tank bag. No streaks. Bugs will come right off with them, too.
