I have been using pledge and Mr sheen on my windscreen for the past few years and it is excellent ,It was a guy in france who had a 1500 since 1990 and he used pledge all the time on his screen and after all this time there is not as much as a blemish on it and that is what convinced me to use it ,,,I also polished the bike with it ,but found the dust seems to settle on it very easily ..So I stick with turtle wax for the bike ...Ciaran

/forums/images/emoticons/smile.gifLemon Pledge has NO bad effects on Windshields,and painted body ----It is perfectly safe for Lexan , and plastic visor stuff.             Its used by several dealers around here to fancy up the bikes for sale in the lot..... It is not as good as Plexus for "antistatic" (it does attract the dust!)    and it does not cut thru the gunge as well as Honda cleaner / polish in the black can... but.. its available anywhere , whilst on the road.. and  if you keep applying it... it will waterproof your windshield for several days in a rainstorm/forums/images/emoticons/dude.gif it also makes your bike smell nice for a few hours.../forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/cooldj.gif SilverDave

The stuff works okay, if you have a big bug build up it's better to soak them a bit with water. As I said on another thread, I've used the stuff on aircraft and boat windshields for years with no harm to the plastic. It will shine up the bike too, but won't last as long as a good carnuba based wax.

hi all,ive always used any furniture polish that was at hand at the time ive been cleaning my bikes,plastics,chrome,painted surfaces its always worked for me? plus most if not all polishes are wax based as far as i can tell so in fact this should protect the surfaces cleaned with it ??? as for the wind sheild ive always used furniture polish,also theres no need for the more expensive brands ive used the cheapest makes and still got the same results,the cheapest one ive used was only 45 pence english money...;)bri,uk.:12beige:

I've seen Turtlewax in aerosol but I don't think the formulation is the same.

Well you learn something every day. I would not had thought about the Lemon Pledge as a polish for the bike. A lot cheaper than some of the stuff out there.:)

When using Pledge on the windshield, the wax actually fills in the minor scratches making it clearer at night and in the rain.

I have used Pledge with good results on the windshield. Whenever you wipe your windshield alway wipe in the same direction. I clean my windshield up and down so as not to create swirl marks that will impede your vision at night.

FWIW I've polished my Cee Bailey windshield in circles, figure eights, and straight lines over the past five years or so and haven't seen any swirl marks.

I use it all the time. Like exavid says, it won't replace a good wax but it's a lot easier and quicker to use it more often. In fact, when I worked in a factory 35 years ago, Pledge is what we put on the new machines before they went in the box and out the door. There's stuff out there that is very similar but costs a LOT more.

I spray 1/3 of a can into a soft, lint-free rag & hold it over my mouth until everything looks shiny :cooldevil:

I have been wondering how to get the turtle through the spray nozzle too. I think I can get him stuffed into the can, but that nozzle does present a problem. :D

Pledge is great on the screen........you can also spray Pledge onto bubblegum on the sidewalk....it won't get rid of the gum...but it'll give it a REAL GOOD shine.
