Cleaning Visors

I took a stick in the face tonight and it left a black scuff on my visor basically right in front of my left eye. It doesn't really feel like anything is there, just as if maybe someone has coloured it with a sharpie or something. Does anyone have any tricks for cleaning this sort of thing off. It's not really that new but the plastic is still pretty clear and otherwise scuff free and the mrs has already given me hell for ruining the towel I use to wrap it in my gear bag so I would just as soon not have to replace it. Any thoughts?

A moist towel was doing nothing but I'll give it a try. Thanks.



Update: Mr Clean Magic Eraser did the trick.

WD-40 works also. I used it on my visor to remove marks when I wore 1 and use it to clean up my stick as well. It removes most marks and tape residue.

if none of that stuff works, you can try nail polish remover (if your wife has some lying around the house...). But make sure it is NON ACETONE, so that it doesnt ruin the plastic... (might want to test it on a corner just to make sure...)

Sorry to bing up an ancient thread, but is it possible to get a visor refurbished? I've got a nice Oakley visor that had many small scratches and was wondering if there was a company out there that could refurb it.

cheers

I'm not sure about a refurb company but I do know that spray furniture polish which is wax based works wonders for hiding small scratches and can make using an old visor more tolerable.

If it has antifog coating on the inside i am not sure if that wax would hurt it or not but for the outside it does hide small markings and scratches by filling them in with wax.

As for just cleaning a visor use water with a very soft napkin or cloth never rubbing hard on it.

Using warm water and dish soap always works well for me...seems to relieve the scratching.
