Default cleaning monocote/Ultra cote

I know they make and sell monocote cleaner, but I wonder if anyone knows of a household/cheap cleaner that works for shining/cleaning plastic coverings. I'm just trying to clean up finger prints and dust and give it a little shine. Thanks Brian Smith

if it's just dust and finger prints, use a dry micro-fiber towel, then you won't have to worry about streaks. Get a whole bunch of them at Costco for cheap.

Windex or Fantastic, any glass cleaner. Use white paper towels or the colors sometimes bleeds onto the monokote.

I use glass cleaner and paper towels to clean the planes.

If you want to POLISH the film covering and give it a shine, use Pledge AFTER you have cleaned the plane. Spray it on and use a SOFT CLOTH to wipe it down, not paper towels.
