With the new year around the corner, it’s time you turn your attention to your furniture. Rather than replace your furniture, it’s time you give it a facelift.
If you’re looking for ways to make your acrylic furniture look new, you came to the right place.
Read on to follow these furniture cleaning tips.
Soap and Water Method
One of the best methods when cleaning acrylic furniture include soap and water. You can get great results using these two everyday household items.
Warm Water and Dish Soap: The first step is to mix one part of liquid dish soap with three parts of warm water. Ensure you mix the solution well until the soap has dissolved.
Use a Soft Cloth or Sponge: Using a cloth or sponge, dip it in the soapy water and rinse off excess water. Take the damp cloth and wipe the surface in a circular motion.
Avoid using any abrasive materials or paper towels as they can scratch the furniture or make it cloudy.
Use Warm Water: Once you have cleaned all of the spots, the next step is to clean the excess soap suds off the furniture. Grab a bowl of warm water without any soap and use a clean, soft cloth.
If you’re cleaning your furniture outside, you can always pour water over the furniture to remove excess soap suds.
Don’t Wipe Down the Furniture to Dry It: Once you have removed the soap suds, you should let the acrylic furniture air dry. If you wipe it down using a cloth, you could leave streaks.
Acrylic Cleaners Method
While you can use soap and water to clean your acrylic furniture, using a commercial acrylic cleaner is also an option.
Choose the Correct Cleaner: If you’re going to use an acrylic cleaner, you must read the label carefully. Choosing cleaners that contain ammonia can damage the furniture or leave them looking permanently cloudy.
Wipe Down the Furniture: Before starting the cleaning process, you must wipe down the excess dust and debris using a soft cloth. If you skip this process, you risk scratching the plastic when cleaning it with the solution.
Spray the Solution: Start by applying the solution to a small section of the furniture and use a microfiber or cotton cloth using circular motions.
Remove Scratches and Cloudiness
It’s not uncommon for furniture to be susceptible to scratches, especially acrylic tables. If you want to remove scratches or cloudiness from your acrylic furniture, you can start by taking a plastic polish solution kit.
Use the polish solution and microfiber cloth to get rid of minor scratches.
If you want to get rid of the cloudiness, you can use the plastic polish in conjunction with an electric buffer to get rid of the cloudiness.
