Re: show opening,plexiglas, and Daniel Smith

On the 10+ year old bottle that I still have it says "anti-static cleaner." I was only searching to see if the stuff is still available before I mentioned it here. I just checked the website - for details click on the Uses > Art & Framing tab.

Hmm, it doesn't say anything about it being useful for cutting down on static electricity, though; does it have that effect?

If not, I'd recommend gently wiping the plexi with one of those antistatic sheets that you throw in the dryer to eliminate static electricity in your clothes.

Hi Chris,

When I used to work at a museum in the 90s we used a product called Brillianize for cleaning plexiglass. I just googled it and found it is still around:

When I got there that evening, the plexiglas on the frames probably due to the atmosphere at Zoot with all that computer/ electronic stuff, had swooped up all the dust, dog hair, lint from the air. Especially at the top of this glorious glass staircase, the works were covered (Zoot allows dogs to accompany their owners, a very neat feature there). Luckily one of my students pointed it out and then went around and wiped down the crud so perhaps it was minimized by the time the crowd arrived (she had come early). But it was the oddest thing I have seen at a show opening! So watch those computer electrons...I am going to have to search for an antistatic plexi spray somewhere I guess for the future.
