Cleaning parabolic reflector.

I've tried cleaning the reflective surface of my parabolic reflector with a soft white cloth and isopropyl alcohol but it's leaving fine scratches on the surface and a grey residue on the cloth. I'm not sure if this is just dirt or if I'm removing some of the reflective coating. It's a silver reflector and the surface is smooth not dimpled.

 

Anyone know if it's ok to clean it this way or will I knacker it?

I would have thought that would be okay , they lose their reflective qualities over time and usage anyway.

 

Are you referring to the growstar shade by any chance ? i have one of those some old school kit that still shines on !

I think the alcohol would be a bit harsh.

try a mild soapy solution instead
