Care of your acrylic

Acrylic is sometimes known by its brand names such as Perspex or Plexigas. Both of these brands are top quality meterials. Renowned for long life, durability, and an optical quality that is better than glass.

To ensure decades of service, always clean acrylic with soapy water using a soft cloth. Do not use spirit based cleaners. (Use 2 drops of washing up liquid in each litre of water).
