Aquatica suggests Mirror Glaze #17. I bought Meguiars Mirror Glaze Clear Plastic Cleaner #17 and followed up with Meguiars Mirror Glaze Clear Plastic Polish #10. I have to say that they work fabulous. The port is now anti static and anti fog and crystal clear. I think I would use the #10 on a regular basis and only use the #17 when it needs it (dried water spots, micro scratches, etc.). For all you Ikelite owners you might want to pass this one by Ike before doing it but I think he'll agree.

Where can you buy this from Rob?

We have to use good old 'Brasso'!

I got it at the local boating store (Westmarine) but if you can't find it locally then you can buy it direct at meguiars.com

Thanks Bob. My ports are probably going to need this soon.

What kind of cloth do you use to apply the cleaner?
