How to maintain and clean your picture frames

Keeping your picture frames clean and well-maintained is an important part of home décor.

Here are some tips for maintaining and cleaning your picture frames:

  1. Dusting: Dust your picture frames regularly to keep them clean. You can use a soft-bristled brush or a microfiber cloth to gently wipe away any dust or debris that may have accumulated on the frame.

  2. Cleaning the glass / perspex: Use a glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to clean the glass of your picture frames. Spray the glass cleaner onto the cloth and then wipe the glass in a circular motion. Avoid spraying the cleaner directly onto the glass, as this can cause streaks, or may leak into the frame and damage the mount. 

  3. Cleaning the frame: Depending on the type of frame, you may be able to clean it with a damp cloth. However, be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions before cleaning the frame, as some materials may be more delicate than others. For wooden frames, you can use a wood cleaner or a mixture of warm water and mild soap to clean the frame.

  4. Avoid moisture: Keep your picture frames away from moisture, as this can cause damage to the frame or the picture inside. If your frame gets wet, be sure to dry it off immediately with a soft cloth.

  5. Avoid direct sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause the colours in your pictures to fade over time. To prevent this, keep your picture frames out of direct sunlight.

  6. Store properly: If you need to store your picture frames, make sure they are stored in a dry, cool place. Wrap them in bubble wrap or another protective material to prevent scratches or damage.

By following these tips, you can keep your picture frames looking clean and new for years to come.
