Protecting your acrylic bar stools is easy!

Maintaining your furniture is super important for a number of reasons. Firstly, you've probably spent some good money on it. Secondly, you live with it every day and so you want it to be in good condition. And thirdly, keeping your furniture nice is handy for if you ever want to sell it in the future.

Of course, a regular cleaning routine can help with this, as well as resolving any damage as quickly as possible. But right now, let's focus on preventing any damage happening. In today's blog post, we're going to teach you how to easily protect your acrylic bar stools. For the full cleaning guide, click here.

What you'll need:

  • Soft sheet for storage
  • Microfibre cloth
  • Acrylic-specific cleaner

The method

  1. Start by ensuring that you always use a soft sheet wrapped around your acrylic bar stool whenever you are transporting it or storing it. Similarly, if you're decorating or moving other furniture around, covering your bar stools with a soft sheet will protect the acrylic sheet.
  2. When it's time to clean and protect your acrylic bar stools, we recommend using a specific cleaning product, designed for use on such plastics. Be very careful about this - any other cleaning product can give your furniture a cloudy appearance.
  3. Use a small amount of the cleaner and use the microfibre cloth to rub it in. Use circular movements to polish. Try a small, inconspicuous area to spot-test first if you're unsure about the cleaning material.
  4. Finally, you can choose to coat your acrylic bar stools with a clear acrylic varnish in order to protect and maintain them in the future.

What to avoid

Don't use ammonia on your acrylic - it will make the material appear cloudy and dirty. Check any cleaning products. If they have ammonia in the ingredients, avoid at all costs.
