Caring for your Framed works:

The Perspex or glass in frames can be gently cleaned using glass polish and a lint free cloth. We recommend spraying glass cleaner on to a cloth rather than directly on to the glass to avoid contact with the frame. As a general rule, our range of mouldings can be cleaned with a mildly damp, lint free cloth. We recommend that as little water as possible is left on the wood as this can lead to warping.
