Re: Removing the haze from Dodger windows
Not all clear vinyl is the same, as I understand it. Eisenglass, rolled vinyl, strataglass, etc. IIRC, strataglass has an outer layer that is different from it's core, which is why you can never polish it with an abrasive, which would remove this outer layer. I could be wrong, but that's what I've understood.
I had a canvas shop once say that the only thing one should ever use to clean clear vinyl is diluted vinegar and water. I did it for years, however, I hate the smell of vinegar, unless it's in food.
I now use the Strataglass cleaner in the spray bottle. Smells like coconut, which I'm sure is it's primary advantage. That and doing no damage, but I don't think it either cleans or protects better than the water-vinegar mix.
The primary advantage of applying a polish is that seawater will shed off better for about one hour after you apply it.
