Default Poly Carbonate Enclosure 60 Mil

Would anyone have first hand experiance on the best way to clean polycarbonate and how to stow the curtain panels? I am planning on bring the panels home for the winter months and clean them good and stow them without scratching the plastic.
Thanks

I stored mine in the attic. I hung them up and put an old sheet between each panel. The problem is that inevitably, they shrink slightly making them almost impossible to re-install. I cleaned mine with lemon fresh furniture polish and have for years with no issues.

I'm planning on hanging mine up two because if I fold them they may get scratched. I never tried lemon pledge though.

I had the same question. Our SeaRay had the isenglass windows replaced with polycarbonate and below is what SeaRay suggested.
