Acrylic is highly sensitive to chemicals, particularly ammonia-based cleaners. Ammonia will eat into its surface, leaving behind cloudy patches on your acrylic.
Always use a soft, nonabrasive cloth when cleaning. Never rub, as this could result in scratches. Wet your cloth before applying cleaner to small areas at a time; avoid cleaning products containing alcohol, ammonia, or aromatic compounds.

Acrylic furniture and accessories can last a lifetime with proper care, but certain cleaning products could damage its finish and leave it looking cloudy.

To properly clean plexiglass, the first step should be removing loose dust or debris by either sweeping it off with compressed air or blowing it with compressed air. Next, make sure that a non-abrasive cloth is used to avoid scratching of its surface – paper towels leave scratches behind, so for best results use microfiber cloth which can be purchased from most big box stores as it’s both non-abrasive and lint-free cleaning solution!
Use of an appropriate cleaner will also help eliminate any smudges, fingerprints or stains that have accumulated on the surface of plexiglass. For optimal results, apply it on a soft cloth before gently wiping across its surface – take care not to apply too much pressure as this could cause cracking and scratching of acrylic surface.
Once the dirt or grime has been eliminated, use a soft cloth to polish the surface until the acrylic shines and is free from smudges or streaks. A dry cloth may also help eliminate any remaining streaks or smudges on its surface.
Before applying a cleaning solution to your plexiglass surface, always read its label. In addition, consult EWG’s Skin Deep Database to check the toxicity rating of its ingredients. When purchasing any cleaning solutions for acrylic glass surfaces, always read and consult their labels as well as EWG’s Skin Deep Database to check on toxicity ratings of their ingredients. Avoid products containing ammonia, benzene lacquer thinner or carbon tetrachloride; using such substances will leave it looking cloudy as well as crack and damage the surface – before purchasing any cleaning solutions from manufacturers!
Acrylic (or Plexiglass as it is more commonly known) can be cleaned using mild dish soap to the same degree that you would for dishes.

Once again, when selecting the ideal dish soap brand for your cleaning needs, there are various factors that must be taken into consideration such as formula, fragrance and efficacy. You should avoid products containing abrasives, alcohol or ammonia as these could damage acrylic over time and cause cracking or discoloring – this is particularly important for clear acrylics which may become discolored quickly by these cleaners.

Microfiber cleaning cloths and paper towels have long been considered insufficient when it comes to acrylic surface care, while many people have switched over to microfiber instead of cotton cloths and paper towels as an easier and faster means of keeping surfaces spotless clean. Microfiber is made up of millions of microscopic fibers split from super-fine synthetic yarns woven up to 100 times finer than human hair that have been separated out into individual microfibrils that offer increased surface area absorption capabilities; plus their positively charged nature attracts and trapping dusty particles instead of dispersing them around and spreading dusty particles around.
Microfiber technology can be found in various household items, from wipers and mops to kitchen sponges and kitchen sponges. Microfiber cloths have become particularly popular due to their durability; they don’t leave behind lint or streaks like regular cloths do and come in an array of sizes, colors and weaves that suit different surfaces (look for cloths made with polyester/polyamide/nylon blends for best results when cleaning glass or mirror surfaces without leaving scratches behind).
Microfiber cloths can help remove dust, dirt and smudges from acrylic furniture with ease when used dry. Just follow the care instructions on their labels when washing them to avoid becoming clogged up with residue and losing their cleaning power.
