Visor Cleaning

Does anyone know about using these alchohol glases wipes on visors?  I dont have specialist visor cleaner and I'm aware of the countless articles on cleaning visors but any secret tips on getting a clean and clear visor minus streaks?

Another thing is internal sun visors.  How the hell do i clean them well when i cant remove them from the helmet?

 

Cheers Guys

Sticky side down and all that

personally.....

if your at home, a damp sheet of paper kitchen towel laid across the visor for a few minutes, then gently wipe, and i then buff with a very soft microfibre cloth.. use this on my clear and iridium visor.

alternatively, baby wipes....... if it dont hurt a babies ase, it wont hurt your visor!!

as for the internal visor... never had one, but id suggest just flipping it down and using the same technique..

Try Pledge

Try Pledge, or whatever the senior management uses, spray on, leave for a couple of minute4s and then polish with a soft clean cloth. Not only clans but acts as a water repellent if it rains. I got this from a courier and it works on my visor.

Alchohol

Wouldnt try alchohol wipes on an Iridium visor. I did and it cleaned it ok. Cleaned the iridium coating off as well :upset:

Blader, i did try baby wipes but it left like a film on the visor that as soon as rain touched it made my visor look like a diesel spill. Maybe it was the cheap crap i found around the house.

Oldnuff,  not a bad idea, might give it a go as I live in the North East of Scotland so rain is inevitable.

Gutted for you Yamark :wacko:

I learnt

my lesson with the alchohl wipes and now use baby wipes like Mr Blader. Trouble was I used the alchohol wipes when I was at Brands doiung my first track day! Lucky enough I had my eyes squeezed shut most of the time anyway so it didnt matter about the visor :laugh:

As Blader says re-hydrate the flies and swipe off,

Wet Kitchen Towel

Used this method for years.  Visor is now some 5 years old, and still clear.
