What You Should Never Do
When cleaning plexiglass makeup organizers, never use a chemical cleaning agent or scouring compounds, such as Colin, Windex, or any glass cleaner. Even if they’re organic, environment-friendly, and non-scented, they’re not suitable if you want your makeup organizers to last long. Additionally, the dust cleaners typically used for cleaning are NOT made for acrylic makeup display sets because they can create a positive charge and attract more dust.
Moreover, if your display set has some kind of gummy substance or an adhesive label stuck to its surface, you shouldn’t be using a solvent for cleaning it. Solvents, such as thinners, gasoline, acetone, and benzene are really strong and hence, can damage the organizer’s surface. Kitchen scouring compounds, halogens, and aromatics should also be avoided. Also, never use a scouring pad for rubbing or patting the surface dry because it can cause damage, like water spotting and ruin the look of your makeup organizer.
One important thing to keep in mind when choosing a cleaning product for your plexiglass makeup organizers is that it shouldn’t contain ammonia. Ammonia tends to eat through the surface and make it look cloudy. Those with alcohol may also dull the appearance of plexiglass makeup organizers and even cause them to crack over time.
