Glass, Plastics and Resin Care

Caring for your glass, plastic and resin furniture is just as important as maintaining your timber. These glossy surfaces are fragile and easily damaged, known for showing any fingerprints, smudges or dust.

Whether it be your glass coffee table or vases and home décor, cleaning these pieces on a regular basis will keep these interior additions looking clean and spotless. 

How To Make It Last

It’s important to treat your furniture and home décor with some general TLC so you can enjoy it season after season. We have put together a list of do’s and don'ts when it comes to maintaining the longevity of your glass, plastic or resin pieces. 

  • Transport any glass pieces vertically without laying it flat. 
  • Use heat resistant place mats and coasters to protect against spills or staining. 
  • Wipe up any spills immediately with a soft damp cloth. 
  • Clean and buff with a soft cotton cloth to prevent scratching. We recommend the Guardsman Cloth. 
  • Avoid exposing your pieces to direct sunlight for a prolonged amount of time. 
  • Don’t use abrasive household cleaners or chemicals to clean. 
  • Avoid placing heavy items on it if it is a tabletop. 
  • Don’t use a feather duster as it can scratch the surface. 

We recommend the Guardsman cloth to help protect your household surfaces from being scratched and keep the dust at bay for your glass, plastic and resin accents. This cloth can also be used on blinds, appliances, cabinets, mirrors, ceiling fans, walls and railings.
