HOW TO CLEAN YOUR GLASS SIGNS
Glass signs, especially etched glass, can attract and hold onto dust particles very easily. Luckily, it is a simple matter to clean glass signs, using common cleaning products.
1. Always use a lint-free soft cloth to clean glass signs. Leaving lint behind is nearly as bad as the original dust and dirt, so avoid cloths or paper towels that leave lint behind.
2. Either purchase spray bottles of window glass cleaner from your nearest grocery or hardware store or mix your own. If you prefer to make your own, simply mix together, in equal amounts, water, ammonia, and isopropyl alcohol, and pour into a clean spray bottle.
3. Spray glass cleaner on glass sign, and wipe away with the soft cloth. Scrub a little more on areas that have stubborn stuck-on dirt and grime.
4. To avoid streaking, don't let the glass signage air-dry after cleaning. Instead, wipe it down with a soft dry cloth.
With simple household glass cleaner and a soft cloth, you can clean your glass signs and keep them beautiful for years to come.
HOW CLEAN YOUR ACRYLIC LOGO SIGN
Acrylic logos are fairly easy to clean, but there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure the best results. The most important thing to remember about cleaning acrylic signs is that you should never use any kind of cleaning agent that contains ammonia or harsh chemicals. Never use glass cleaners or common kitchen grease cleaners on your acrylic signs.
The next thing to remember is to avoid the use of any kind of rough scouring material. Rough scouring pads or cloths can cause the dirt you are wiping off to also be ground into the acrylic, causing tiny scratches.
Finally, never wipe your acrylic logos with a dry cloth, as this can also grind the dirt into the acrylic in much the same way as scouring materials will do.
Now that you know what to avoid, let's concentrate on how easy it is to clean acrylic logo signs the proper way.
Washing The Acrylic Logo Sign
The best way to clean acrylic logo signs is with clean, lukewarm water and a clean, soft, nonabrasive, non-linting cloth. If the sign is large and located out of reach, you can use a pressure washer instead. Mild soap or detergent can be mixed with the lukewarm water when necessary.
Drying The Acrylic Sign
For a streak-free sign, dry with a clean, dry soft cloth. Gently blotting the sign with the cloth is the safest way to ensure a beautiful result. For signs that cannot be easily reached, you can simply allow the sign to air dry.
Signs That Need More Than Soap and Water
If your sign has a more stubborn cleaning problem, you can purchase cleaning agents designed specifically for acrylic. Make sure to double-check that any cleaner you purchase, other than a mild soap or detergent, is safe to use on acrylic. These products are specially designed to clean, polish or buff acrylic and can be found at your local hardware store or online. Follow the directions on the product, use soft clean cloths, and your acrylic logo sign should continue to look as clean and brilliant as the day you bought it.
