How do you clean the windows?

You may clean them as usual, though we recommend against using any abrasive cleaners or ammonia products (Windex) or sharp tools that might scratch the film. Due to the polyester coating, a soft, clean damp cloth will often wipe off most things, but for anything else, adding a capful of vinegar  or alcohol and a few drops of dish soap to some water should take care of it.
