Dusting and Dry Cleaning Paintings

There are several methods to clean paint surfaces including the use of a soft hair brush to brush away dust into a vacuum.

If these methods do not clean a paint surface well enough, the next step is to use dry cleaning methods that clean the surface more aggressively. Using materials such as a microfiber cloths and dry cleaning sponges, you can safely remove dirt from the surface of the painting. If dusting and dry cleaning methods do not succeed in removing soil from paint surfaces, only then use an aqueous cleaning method.

Aqueous Cleaning Methods

Picture CleanGel is a solvent-free aqueous gel cleanser that is gentle to both varnished or unvarnished paint surfaces. The gel cleanser is designed to remove soil, proteinaceous and carbohydrate materials from varnished and unvarnished oil paint surfaces. It is also useful as a cleaner for paintings that have collected dirt and dust immediately prior to varnishing.
