How do you remove scratches from your windscreed?

I was keeping my bike outside locked inside my gate. That attractred mosquitose that led me to spray off in the area. Not knowing it was getting on my bike screen, it left spots on it.:eh: I tried to remove the spots but was not successfull until I used a brillo pad. That left swirls/scratches on the windscreen. How can i remove them?

If it's stained / discolored I doubt you will be able to get it out.

scuff pads on plastic or paint is a no no. Get a new windscreen if you want it to look good otherwise let that be a reminder for you.

Change the windscreen period.
Now that you know not to use a brillow pad, use Plexus polish or if you are smart and frugal for normal cleaning and minor scratch cover ups, use Pledge Furniture Polish.
Pledge works just as good as Plexus for plastic and you can get it dirt cheap.

Oh .....here come the flames from the peanut gallery who will not buy the Pledge vs. Plexus statement.

INCOMING!!!
