  • Cleaning with Mild Detergent: Certain stains arising out of dust or bird dropping do not go by rinsing with a spray of water. Here, you need to use a sponge and a mild solution of detergent in water. By applying the detergent-laced water on the stained areas, the panels can be cleaned to restore their transparency. After applying the soapy liquid, you can wash off the excess liquid by rinsing the area with jet of water.
