Once you've gathered the necessary materials, you can proceed with the cleaning process:

  1. Remove dust and debris: Gently brush the surface of the acrylic print with a dry microfibre cloth or feather duster to remove any dust or loose debris.
  2. Apply cleaner to cloth: Moisten a microfibre cloth with the non-abrasive cleaning solution (or washing-up liquid mixed with lukewarm water).
  3. Gently wipe the surface: Using the dampened cloth, gently wipe the acrylic print in a circular motion. Start from one edge and work your way across the entire surface. Apply light pressure to remove any smudges or fingerprints.
  4. Drying the print: Use a clean, dry microfibre cloth to thoroughly dry the acrylic print and polish away any streaks. Wearing soft cotton gloves will help you avoid leaving fingerprints at this stage.

Dealing with stubborn stains or marks

Occasionally, you may encounter more stubborn stains or marks on your acrylic prints. Here's how to deal with them:

Spot cleaning: This is useful if you notice a small area with a stubborn stain. Moisten a soft cloth with the cleaning solution and gently rub the affected area in a circular motion. Dry the surface thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Avoid abrasive materials: Never use abrasive materials such as scrub brushes or rough sponges to remove stains. These can scratch the acrylic surface, spoiling its clarity and beauty.
