Default Plexus v/s Pledge

Has anyone used Pledge furniture polish instead of Plexus spray cleaner? I know the Plexus goes a long way, but Pledge is less then 1/2 the price. A woman in my local chapter uses it on her winshield, chrome & paint (but her bike is far from pristene).

Pledge is good for vinyl. I don't think it's so hot for chrome or plexiglas.

Please God whatever you do don't use Armorall.

Spit. Particularly after eating Nathan's hot dogs.

Default Honda Polish

I am on my last can of fluorocarbon rich Honda polish. After this can is gone I will have to use the new formula.

You obviously haven't priced Plexus lately! Pledge is about one fourth the price of Plexus........

(I use the Pledge on paint an' stuff like that - an' the Plexus on windscreens, visors, glasses, and headlights)

Is there anything wrong with 409?

Or Windex, for that matter?

I think they're talking about protection more than cleaning. I wouldn't use ammonia on Lexan or other clear plastics...it might fog after a while.

I use the same carnuba wax on the screen as the rest of the bike. Makes it shed bugs and dirt; gives UV protection. I do not look through my screen, so I can't say it's a good solution for someone who does.

Plexiglas has many superior qualities but resistance to petrochemicals and ammonias aren't included. I'd stick with dedicated plexiglas cleaners and polishes and not screw around with stupid experiments.

I started using this on the K-bike over the winter: Clean wood, glass, electronics and more - Pledge® Multi Surface Spray & Wipes

It seems to work on most of my surfaces without fuss.

But it generates a mental image of a 220#, 6' guy wearing a yellow chiffon dress, swirling around a motorcycle singing:

Lemon Pledge cleans so easy,
Lemon way to make bikes glow.
Lemon Pledge as you're dusting,
Adds new luster as you go!
