Can you use Windex to clean museum glass? It is highly recommended that you use a special acrylic cleaner available at most hardware stores. A second option, use a dampened, not soaked, 100% cotton cloth like a T-shirts. Dampen with a mixture of dish washing soap and water. Never use an ammonia-based glass cleaner such as Windex.
How can you tell if glass is museum glass? Museum glass is usually pretty obvious, other than the reduced glare. If you look at the face of it from one side, so the light reflects off, you’ll see a purple tint or coating.
What is the difference between museum glass and regular glass? The only difference between the two is the UV protection. Museum Glass has 99% UV protection, which is the same as your standard UV filtering glass. It is designed to be amazingly clear, as well as protective for your art long term.
Is Museum glass worth the cost? Conservation Glass filters out 99% of the harmful UV rays that cause light damage and looks like regular glass: clear and shiny. Museum Glass also filters out 99% of UV light, but has the added feature of being clear and virtually non-reflective because of a special coating.
