How to Clean Acrylic Panels
Use one teaspoon of mild dishwashing detergent and a pint of water. Apply this solution with an atomizer or spray bottle and wipe dry until glossy smooth. Use a clean wipe or mop depending on if you are pre-cleaning or final cleaning.
A detergent solution and clean wipers are recommended for acrylic panel cleaning. Note that the wiping process may build electrostatic charge and attract dust particle from the air. Wiping with a damp chamois will remove this charge as well as the dust. Do not use windows cleaning fluids, scouring compounds, benzene, acetone, or carbon tetrachloride.
A high-quality VM&P Naptha, Kerosene, or other Aliphatic Hydrocarbon compound is recommended to remove tar, grease, paint, ect.
Polish application removes most scratches. Scratches that penetrate the surface level require buffing equipment with a cotton wheel.

Aluminum Panel Cleaning
An advantage of aluminum panels is that they require a minimal amount of care. When cleaning is necessary, test a small area first before applying to the entire panel.
Dirt & Dust Removal
Clean normal dirt and dust with a cloth or sponge. A solution of warm water and a mild detergent (Pine Sol, Spic N’ Span, ect.) is effective, but always follow company SOP’s in cleanroom applications. Steam cleaning is acceptable in USDA inspected facilities
Hard Water Spot Removal
Remove hard water spots with a 10% solution of Acetic acid in cold water.
