Remove bug spray from Plexiglas with vinegar.

When using bug spray, the residue often gets left behind on surrounding surfaces. When it comes to Plexiglas and similar hard, non-porous surfaces, the bug spray typically leaves behind a hazy film that can be sticky, slippery and unattractive. To keep the Plexiglas surface looking its best, you must safely remove the bug spray without damaging the Plexiglas.

Step 1

Fill a spray bottle with 2 cups water, 1 cup white vinegar and 4 drops dish soap. Shake the bottle to mix ingredients.

Step 2

Mist the spray over the Plexiglas surface and scrub the Plexiglas gently with a cleaning rag. Continue across the plexiglass until all bug spray is removed.

Step 3

Allow the Plexiglas to air dry. The combination of vinegar and dish soap cuts through the bug spray and leaves behind no residue.
