Frequently Asked Questions
How should I clean my plastic product?
Anything with ammonia will attack the plastic over time. Soap and water or Novus polish works wonders, they also make 2 scratch removers for light scuffs that work fairly well. As long as you don't use any cleaners that have ammonia in it like Windex it will stay nice for a long time.

How to Clean and Maintain
Are you tired of having scratch marks on your Lucite furniture? This is a quick guide in helping you to get rid of scratches and marks. Read the following maintenance information.
Removes fine scratches, haziness and abrasions from most plastics. With repeated use, NOVUS No. 2 restores faded and discolored plastics. Removes the damage instead of filling it in. Buffs out quickly. After restoring, seals with a coat of polish.
Observe condition of the surface to be treated. The deeper the scratches, the greater the pressure required to remove them. If the surface is dirty, clean with NOVUS No.1 before applying NOVUS No. 2.
Shake well. Test in an inconspicuous area.
Apply NOVUS No. 2 liberally. Using a clean, soft cloth, polish with a firm back-and-forth motion at right angles to the scratches. Keep the cloth saturated with polish at all times.
When the worst scratches have been polished out, reapply NOVUS No.2 uniformly in a circular motion to the entire surface using short, circular strokes and light pressure. Allow to dry to a light haze.
Using a clean portion of the cloth, buff the surface to a slippery glaze using firm, short strokes. This procedure is imperative in achieving the best results.
For heavy scratches, multiple applications of NOVUS No. 2 or application of NOVUS No. 3 may be required.
Follow with NOVUS No. 1 for best results.
Some plastics are coated with a thin film which may be damaged by the abrasives in the polish. NOVUS No. 2 and No. 3 Polishes are not recommended for use on coated plastics or eyeglass lenses.
