    For daily maintenance cleaning of face shields, I've been using those little disposable lens wipes that are available at the grocery store, and intended for cleaning prescription glasses. I have some of them here next to my pc, and the two brands I've been using are nice n clean, and Zeiss. They are good for plastic lenses, and work on my Bionic shield very well. I probably use them about every other day.

    As with any lenses......never touch......that will make the dust stick worse. Only used compressed air to take off the dust. Because you're breathing on the interior surface, that's where the build-up normally accumulates. (Well, except for those times you're turning very wet wood! :eek:)

    There is a cleaner called Plexus. It is great.
    I use overlays to protect my Trend Airshield Pro.

    Might do the job but I think overlays are cheaper

    Windex, yea I know you aren't suppose to use it but it works, I think it has been three years since I replaced the plastic. It won't take off CA.

    Holy Cow, this thread is still kickin' eh? Well, now I have 6 shields to babysit. I love having an air hose hanging on the wall to blow off dry sawdust with. So far, I'm the only one who turns wet wood,
