Cleaning cockpit "glass"

I have a GP J-3 cub 60 that filled with nitro. To get it out, I just dumped it. In the process fuel got all over the "glass", side windows, windshield, etc. now I have white streaks I cannot remove. Tried windex, simple green, even Dawn Power dissolver. Anyone experience this and found a solution to remove the streaks from the plastic windows?

i have the same thing on my j3 however i dont think its possible to get rid of it. i also spilled nitro and i think that the nitro in the fuel eats into the plastic a bit which makes your almost white fog. hope i am wrong interested to see what others know

try some plexiglass polish. they sell it at home depot around in the plexiglass and glass cutting section. the headlight polishing kits will prob work too, but the problem is that you cannot push very hard at all

I think I remember hear/reading somewhere that Pledge can be used. Can't say for certain as I haven't tried it, but the guys touting it sure did say it worked.
