You have just purchased a very fine piece of hand made furniture. With the proper care, it will give you many years of enjoyment. Just as you take pride in caring for fine silver or a beautiful wood surface, you will find it pays to take the simple precautions necessary to preserve the beauty of your purchase. Handcrafted acrylic pieces from Plexi-Craft are works of art; each individual craftsman labors to express their skills in every piece of fine furniture we produce. This gives each piece an appreciating value and character produced only by the unique variations created by crafting with hands. These hand manufacturing characteristics enhance the beauty of the piece and increase the life long durability of the furniture.
Always use a clean cloth made of soft cotton, much like a man’s t-shirt with the stitching removed
Dusting: Dust only with a soft damp cloth or chamois, wiping gently.
Washing: Wash with a mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water solution. Use as much solution as possible. Rinse well with water. Dry by blotting, again using a soft cotton cloth.
Do Not Use: Window cleaning fluids, scouring compounds, gritty cloths, or strong solvents such as alcohol, ammonia, acetone, carbon tetrachloride, etc.
Polishing: Use a good polish for acrylics, such as Novus 1, available directly from Plexi-Craft. It provides a high shine and does not show finger marks. Novus 1 is also a static electricity remover. This cuts down on the dust that can be attracted to acrylic.
Scratch Removal: Like a beautiful wood or fine silver, this material can be scratched. But unlike most other materials, a scratch on this surface can be removed. Minor surface scratches can be visibly removed with Novus 2 available here. For heavier scratches use Novus 3 with the Novus 2.
Protection: Just like on fine wood and metal, the surface of your new acrylic piece must be protected from scratches and harmful agents. Use felt or rubber on the bottom of items that may scratch the surface and use drink coasters to prevent potential clouding by spilled beverages and spirits.
We want you to get years of enjoyment from your new acrylic furniture. If you have any questions, please contact us directly. Novus 1, 2, and 3 are available for purchase from us directly.
