Acrylic furniture has a dazzling reputation that some enthusiasts equate with the opulent Hollywood Regency era. Others may think of the enduring Louis Ghost clear Chair, which was unveiled in 2002 by well-known designer Philippe Starck. Whatever the case, one thing is certain: a clear acrylic chair is just as see through chair and popular today as it was back in the 1930s when it was originally introduced to the world of home décor.
These adaptable pieces naturally increase the perceived airiness of space and look fantastic in any design. The dilemma of how to clean acrylic furniture always remains, though, for those who do decide to purchase it. Continue reading for our advice on how to keep clear acrylic chair scratch-free and polished to a glossy sheen!
Can we first discuss what not to do? You would assume that using a glass cleaner, like Windex, would work because it resembles glass in appearance. You would be mistaken. Never do it! It will just cause the acrylic to deteriorate over time and look hazy. Additionally, avoid using the soiled dusting cloth you have laying about. There's a chance that it has tiny, abrasive particles in it that will scratch the surface.
Despite the fact that dust may appear harmless, each speck is merely a tiny particle of debris that could have sharp edges that could scratch clear dining chairs. Never use a filthy or cotton dust cloth that produces lint to wipe acrylic surfaces down to avoid scratching. You'll need a clean, extremely absorbent, non-abrasive microfiber polishing cloth, as you might have imagined. Pick one with incredibly fine fibers. While many people advice washing your clear dining chairs with soap and water. Using a hand-held hair dryer is one approach to make sure you are not scratching the surface by rubbing too vigorously or dragging the dust particles over it. Remove the surface dust by turning on the dryer's cool air setting. Run the hairdryer from top to bottom and side to side down the surface while holding it at a 45-degree angle a few inches away.
