Easily Tips: Dust the Bronze
First of all, your bronze may only need to be cleaned to remove dust. When your sculpture is used for some time, whether it is placed outdoors or indoors, because the dust is flying, there would be a lot of dust on the surface of the sculpture. At this time, bronze sculptures need to be dusted regularly, for example once or twice a month.
You could use the dust removal items in your home to remove dust, such as cloth, Swiffer, toothbrush or soft nozzle attachment for vacuuming. Please note that you need to clean them in a dry environment and do not use water.
If the bronze statue is still dusty after simple dusting, it may require more effort to clean it. If you need to do this, make sure to use the correct tools to clean your bronze sculptures, so as not to damage the bronze statues and sculptures and shorten the life of the sculptures.
The following are the steps and some precautions for your deep cleaning:
First of all, the most important point is that in the process of deep cleaning, do not use polishing agents or chemicals that would scratch the surface of bronze. Otherwise, it would leave marks and scratches. Make sure not to use a hard bristle brush or rough brush.
Secondly, the best materials you could use to clean bronze statues and sculptures are just water and soap. Many people claim that a little soap is useful for cleaning bronze. However, do not use any soaps that are scented, as they may eventually damage your artwork.
Of course, if you do not trust tap water, you could boil it to remove any harmful chemicals in use. When mixing soap and water, only a small amount of soap needs to be added to the water so that there are only a few bubbles. Because you only hope to remove the dirt on the statue.
Then, take a soft cloth and immerse it in the soapy water mixture, then wipe the bronze sculpture surface. This should be enough to remove some dirt. Depending on the size of the statue, this may take you a while, especially if there are many gaps. If you could not reach certain places, using a toothbrush may be helpful.
After cleaning with soapy water, you could use clean water to wipe the surface with a rag. If you wait for the sculpture surface to dry, it would take some time. Then the easiest way is that you need to immediately take a clean and dry rag and wipe the surface of the sculpture again.
