kommenttia How to take care of acrylic stands?

  • I guess I’m really lazy with them because I just set them somewhere and wipe them with a Swiffer duster occasionally haha. But I’ve had my oldest one for 5 years and it’s still fine.

    My acrylic stands have been doing alright with a quick bath in warm water and hand soap.

    This might just be something i do, but i use touch screen cleaning clothes they are non-alcohol based so should not effect the decals. Keep in mind i only have 2 acrylic stands.

    Didn't need to clean it yet but id use a makeup brush :) and blow most off before I use it.


    Makeup brushes don't work too well on acrylic. It tends to attract the dust that's built up in brush and make it more dusty. They're the best things to use for figures though ofc.

    1. Grab them from edges to avoid fingerprints. They don't scratch easily, but wipe them off once gently before using pressure so you get any major things that could cause scratching off.

    2. Personally, to clean them I just use my glasses cleaner. Even a shirt should do well enough.

    3. If they have an excessive amount of fingerprints use a small amount of windex. Put the windex on a cloth and then wipe, don't put windex directly on stand.

    4. Not sure about sunlight tbh. I've had amiko and lilko (amiami mascots) stands facing the sun for years and there's no visible fading or anything.

    Most of my collection is goods of Chino from GochiUsa (and every figure of her), so I have a ton of acrylic stands. I tend to get every new one that is released at events in Japan (my friend forwards them for me).

    plasticizer very mild
    Here are my 2-cents as a connoisseur of materials:
    1. Don't use alcohol or any strong solvent cleaners on acrylic or they'll attack the polymer bonds and cause them to crack and shit
    2. Non-abrasive mild soap with microfiber cloth is the best way to clean the surface
    3. Acrylic has strong UV resistance, but the color on printed parts may be susceptible to fading if left in direct sunlight for an extended period of time
    4. Keep away from places that are above 100ºF(37ºC) or the plastic will degrade

    5. If you want to get super serious/live in a dry place, consider getting anti-static cleaning spray made specifically for acrylic. These things will make the acrylic less static-y, meaning they won't attract as much dust.

    -mochijelly-2 kuukautta sitten#80325645yay, another acrylic stands lover! to add on to what's already been said, i'd use an eyeglass cloth for smudges just in case and a duster to swipe along the bases and sides, so there'll likely be no scratching left behind if the cleaning isn't too rough. i keep mine displayed in the sunlight and have had them there for a few months now and haven't had any designs fade yet, but do whatever you feel best doing.

    Thank you very much!! Ah that's perfect if it's working well for you as I have already ordered two eyeglass cloths haha! I also plan to buy a duster as darkinsanity13 has recommended it as well. I'm glad the sun doesn't affect the designs. I don't have mine in direct sunlight but may catch light rays at time. I appreciate the help! :D

    darkinsanity132 kuukautta sitten#80322331I'm in agreement with LiLMoon below; I wouldn't consider acrylic stands particularly high maintenance, so just doing as LiLMoon says is more than enough. If you're concerned about blowing dust off, using a dusting cloth or duster works perfectly fine. However I wouldn't use a tissue to remove dust as I find they often leave particles behind in the process, which kinda defeats the purpose.
    As for sunlight, while none of mine are ever in direct sunlight, I imagine that the printing could begin to fade over time from exposure, so I recommend being careful.


    Thank you very much!! I'll try to buy a duster haha. I forgot to mention that that actually happens to me when using tissue to wipe off dust. What I try to do is wipe it off the edge to remove whatever the tissue left haha. I appreciate the advice! :D

    LiLMoon2 kuukautta sitten#80303754I have lots of acrylic stands myself. They are pretty sturdy so I wouldn't be too worried about damaging them. I usually handle them with clean hands without issue. Sometime I do use an eyeglass cleaner cloth if I see fingerprint smudges on them. If they are dusty, I simply blow it off. If it gets bad, I use disinfecting wipes to clean them. Then I will use a tissue or my cloth to dry them. I have used paper towels to dry them as well. Never rub too hard or use your nails to remove dirt as you might scratch them. I have mine away from direct sunlight so I can't say how sunlight effects them. Hope this helps.

    Thank you very much!! I think those tips will be useful :D I really appreciate it!
