Had acrylic sheet plastic enclosure on the front deck of our houseboat all winter. Weather is now warm enough to make it uncomfortably warm most of the time. So spent good part of Saturday taking it down and storing it for the summer. Wife and part of our friends smoke there in the winter (I will have been quit 2yrs next Thanksgiving)so it had nicotene buildup. To store I cleaned each piece as I took them down, then sprayed lightly with PLEDGE furniture polish!!!! Sounds insane, but it leaves plastic soft, pliable, and looking brand new! After spraying, buff in with terrycloth towel. Then each piece was laid out on front deck,covered with old cloth (towels, sheets, pillowcases, etc.) and rolled up using "floaties","noodles" or what ever you call them to keep rolls from flattening out and creasing plastic. Creases are BAD NEWS as they will break after being put back in service.
COME ON SUMMER!!!!
I carry a gun because it's too tiring carrying a cop.
I am surprised that you could roll the acrylic as tight as a
noodle. I had acrylic windows on a flybridge enclosure on a
previous boat and the tightest I would roll them was about 1 foot
The regular vinyl "isenglass" will roll pretty tight.
And I second the use of Pledge. We use that as a cleaner and
it has worked great for us.
