If you have a few oil paintings that are looking a bit dirty and dusty you can clean them yourself and save a bundle of money! To clean oil paintings simply use a cloth clean cloth, a few cotton buds and a spray bottle of mild dish soap and warm water. Spray only a tiny bit of the mixture and wipe until dry carefully getting all the water out of any cracks. After the painting is dry you can wipe with a wax or furniture polish to make the painting shine!
It goes without saying that if you feel that the painting is in anyway valuable that you seek the advice of a professional before even touching your painting.
