How to take care of Glass Figurines!
Keeping glass figurines in a safe place is a must. This can be as simple as putting them on a shelf out of reach or on a mantel where they cannot be knocked over. A glass case or tabletop cabinet can also provide a safe area for figurines to be displayed, and it will also help keep them from collecting dust, dirt, and pet fur. Many types of cabinets are available to suit almost any room decor and size requirements; when choosing a cabinet, be sure to allow enough space to be able to reach in and remove a figurine without bumping any next to it.
To remove fingerprints, glass figurines can be carefully washed using a soft cloth and hand or dish soap. Fill a shallow bowl with the mixture of warm water and soap. Placing some sponges along the bottom of the bowl will help prevent breakage should the figurine slip or if it needs to be soaked to get rid of hardened grime. Hard water can leave residue on a glass figurine, so be sure to use bottled water if water from the tap is hard. Depending on the type of glass, some chemicals can damage the figurine; for example, ammonia-based cleaners can corrode crystal glass figurines.
