Cleaning Plexiglass on observation hives.

5271 12
Does anyone know a product that will remove bees wax from plexiglass? I have two observation hives that I use for classes and from time to time they need to be cleaned. For several years I have just replaced the plexiglass, but now plexiglass is becomming quite expensive. I haven't found anything that will get them clean. Thanks.

Thanks Mike... I have tried a razor blade, and it is about as good as anything I have tried.. It will remove the little burr comb, but it doesn't do a good job cleaning the plexiglass. Glass Plus, Vinegar, Hot water doesn't work very well either.

Chuck... I used glass for several years but one day it broke. So I switched to plexiglass. Now I use two pieces of plexiglass on each side. Even the best of school kids, Kindergarden through High School, will sometimes peck at the glass, and at times some roudy individual pushes another and they fall aginst the observation hive. I have to take every precaution possible.
