Kathy asked: How do I safely clean the “glass” that is plastic over a piece of artwork I inherited? I have a huge, Erte seriograph that I inherited, and I need to clean the plastic that is covering the artwork. It is not glass, but a form of plastic. I think the frame is also a plastic, as far as I can tell. I do not think I can use Windex. Thank you.
To clean and polish the protective covering over your artwork, you can’t beat the professional results this method provides.
You Will Need:
- Brillianize Plastic and Glass Cleaner and Polish Kit
- Safety glasses
Steps to Clean the Glass:
- Lay the artwork down on a flat surface if possible to reduce the risk of runs. This also helps to keep moisture away from your artwork.
- This product should be kept away from eyes. Wear safety glasses when appropriate.
- Spray Brillianize directly onto the glass or plastic covering. You only need a light mist covering the area. For large pieces of art, work in small sections.
- Use a microfiber cloth (included in kit referenced above) to clean and polish the surface to a deep shine.
- Ensure the moisture is completely gone before moving to the next section.
- For large pieces, repeat the above steps until the entire covering is clean.
- If there is a large amount of surface debris, you may need to repeat the cleaning process.
Additional Tips and Advice
- Your newly cleaned glass or plastic will be fingerprint resistant and anti-static to help reduce dust for long lasting, professional-quality results.
- Brillianize is safe for Lucite, Plexiglas, Lexan, acrylic, Acrylite and all plastic or glass surfaces.
