How to clean Lexan windows

Wondering if anyone has any tips on cleaning Lexan windows so as to not scratch the soft plastic.

I just hose them off good first then use boat soap and a microfibre cloth, rinse off and let dry. Doesn't seem to hurt them at all.

We use a product called "Plexus" that we get at the auto/motorcycle parts store. Use with a microfiber cloth.

My Lexan windows seem very susceptible to scratching!
I have been using boat soap and warm water, taking care to use a very clean bucket and a microfiber mophead, followed by a chamois.
I'm still getting fine scratches...
On sorta the same subject,
Anybody have a great product for water repellent on Lexan?
I have been using Rain x for plastic, but it doesn't work nearly as well as the Rain X for glass.

I use 210 spray wax. It works great on the "eisenglass" and other plastics. They make a 210 plus for more heavy duty cleaning. Amazon has it.
