Cleaning The Home- Antiques

posted in Home & Garden
  • Cleaning antiques must be done with the greatest of care - even damaging the patina can drastically reduce the value of an antique object.

    A damp, soft cloth with a little liquid soap should be sufficient to remove grubby marks from furniture. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth and use natural beeswax to polish, then buff softly to shine.

  • Pictures:
    Dust the frames of pictures with a feather duster, or use a soft make-up brush on elaborate gilded frames. You can clean old, but not particularly valuable, paintings with a special picture cleaner (available from artists suppliers)- always follow the manufacturer's instructions. If you don't wish to clean a painting yourself, take it to a qualified restorer.

  • Tips and tricks I've found through different cleaning and tips books.
