Default Case Window Scratches.

Anyone have any knowledge of Lexan, Polycarb or Plexi scratch cleaners or repair.
Yes good ole Atech was seating a cable for the second DVD burner i installed and ran his finger across the inside of his new case window and my finger alone layed some lovely scratches on it. I should know better, but then i stole a pair of my wifes 100% cotton ....well you know.. and they scratched it somemore yay.
I asked on all 3 materials because i honestly don't know what this one is but it sure as heck scratched easy.
And while I am at it what exactly do you wipe whatever this material is with?
if cotton and my finger could dig into it sheesh.
I put this under modding figuring modders would have the most knowledge of scratches.
Thanks
Atech66

You could use toothpaste. Works on CDs.

Other than that, I dunno.

Well thats worth a shot mind telling me your process?
what brand and do you smear it on or mix it with water or anything?
What kind of cloth do you use? I was suprised cotton left fine scratches on it.
2 toothpaste responses is good enough for me.
O and it is Acrylic
Thanks

A screen cleaning cloth with any old toothpaste works for me
