All fogged up

I've been reading threads about fogged up windshields and am curious to know if anyone has used de-natured alcohol?

A friend of mine cleaned mine with that Honda spay and I've had nothing but problems since. Up until now, I've only used water.

Any suggestions for what to use to take care of the problem and not start a pealing problem too??

Thanks,
Al

S-L-X Denatured Alcohol from Home Depot is what I have had good luck with. I have been using 1 part Alcohol to 2 parts water with a terry cloth covered sponge. ACE Denatured Alcohol did not seem to work as well. Wipe it dry with clean old towels. I then seal it with Plexus. I have an original 2000 "defective coating shield" that I have not replaced yet. It always fogs up in the rain even with the treatment. The fogging is related to ambient humidity.

Thanks for the Home Depot info. I've also heard that Plexis is the cause for a lot of the fogging problems....you might want to use nothing on it at all....Just a thought!

A Good Solution

No Longer have my LT, but was plagued by the fogging Windsheild.

My mom owns a HobbyShop (HobbyTownUSA) one day she says: "Spray some of the Anti-Fog stuff the kids use on their Paint Ball masks". BINGO BINGO. Within 3 applications no more fogging.
