Hey guys, im very very new to riding, and this is more of a chemically based question.
In particular this is about the Cleaning of Helmet Visors. I have a Caberg 104 (Solo) Raptor that has an anti-fog coasting on the inside of the visor. When attempting to clean the visor, you can feel a huge difference when using a lense cloth as it feels like the inside has a rubber lining.
I may just be OCD about this, but the streaks in the visor are DRIVING me insane. And in past i know Windex and most cleaning solutions help avert streaks when just using water. Now to the meat of the question, will using Windex or other solutions totaly destroy that anti-fog coating on the visor? Is there a solution to assist me with properly cleaning? OR should i just STFU, keep using water and quit bitching?
If only being able to use water is the case ill just have to accept it, i would prefer to not mess up the visor.
Quit using Windex.The amonia D is a bad mutha.It's a chemical that helps dry out surfaces.
I use "Sparkle" it's purple in appearence.It doesn't have amonia D in it.
The car window tinters recommend it by choice and they say stay away from Windex.
Yeah man, windex with scratch it evenetually unless you really water it down. I use Honda polish or Plexus. Otherwise, I'll saturate the shield in Glass Plus (ammonia free) and then run warm water over it while I clean it with a wet paper towel...but thats just me.
I just use warm water with a couple drops of liquid soap (hand or dish, whatever is within reach). Lather it up and rinse with warm-hot water and wipe dry with a soft towel. Not a single scratch or water-spot from cleaning in 5 years .
For quick clean-ups if it's not too dirty I use a soft rag and a spritz of Stoner Glass Cleaner.
Windex will completely erode the anti-fog coating. Use warm water with just a drop of liquid soap. With practice the streaks will no longer appear. It just takes some practice. And will lengthen the life of your visor, not to mention your cold weather visibility.
