How to Clean Resin Art

Just like glass, cured resin has a smooth, shiny surface that can show fingerprints or dust and may need occasional cleaning. Clean your resin art just as you would clean glass by spraying it with a mild glass cleaner, then gently wiping it dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. Epoxy resin is strong and durable so you can safely use a mild glass cleaner without damaging the resin surface.
💡TIP: Avoid the use of abrasive cleansers, scouring pads or bleach as they may scratch or damage the surface of the resin. 

How to Remove Fingerprints From Resin

Epoxy resin has a beautiful, high gloss surface that can easily show fingerprints on the surface. Most fingerprints will be removed with glass cleaner, but for more stubborn spots, wipe gently with a damp, soft cloth and a solution of mild soap and water. 

Can I Wash Cured Epoxy Resin?

Yes, you can wash cured epoxy resin. Functional pieces like resin coasters and serving trays can easily get dirty during use. Since cured epoxy resin is waterproof, you can wash them with a soft cloth and a little mild dish soap without fear of damaging them.

Can You Clean Resin With Alcohol?

  • Do not clean cured resin with alcohol. Alcohol breaks down resin and while this is useful for cleaning sticky tools or resin spills, alcohol can quickly cause cured resin to become dull or even sticky. To maintain the high gloss finish, clean cured resin surfaces with a mild glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
