For over thirty five years we have been manufacturing our own special blend of oil painting cleaning fluid. This artwork cleaner is unique as it is the only oil painting restoration product that can be safely used by anyone. You don’t have to be a professional art restorer and have years of restoration experience to use it.
Initially, we created this product for our museum and church clients, it was a straightforward way for untrained staff to clean and protect the oil paintings under their care. Over time the popularity and reputation of the cleaner has spread and we now supply it to thousands of private individuals and institutions worldwide. The kit includes a 120ml pot of cleaner, 30 cleaning pads, a pair of protective gloves and instructions. Any questions – please visit our FAQs page.

The box contains a 120ml jar of our Professional Oil Painting Cleaner, 30 cotton pads and a pair of protective gloves.
We suggest a medium sized picture approximately 30″ x 24″ (762mm x 610mm), but it all depends on the amount of cleaning it will require as more dirt or a highly textured finish will need more cleaning.
If your painting has flaking paint or any damage we do not recommend using the Oil Painting Cleaner Kit. The damage and flaking paint will need to be professionally repaired to preserve the artwork, the process will include a thorough clean as well, please visit our oil painting restoration section for more information.
The kit comes with a pair of latex-free gloves. It is suggested that you use the cleaner in a well-ventilated room and wear eye protection to avoid any unexpected splashes. Make sure the surface you place the painting on is protected with plastic sheeting or newspaper. Dispose of the used cleaning pads carefully. Always wash your hands after use.
A lint-free or microfibre cloth or a soft bristled brush can be used.
Sometimes the results may not be as you expected. If the painting still looks dark or discoloured this can be due to yellowed varnish or the dirt being under the varnish layer. In order to bring back the paintings original colours, the varnish will need to be removed by a professional restorer. For information about our professional services please see our oil painting section.
