To receive years of beautiful service from your enclosure requires only a minimum of care and maintenance. You should not use cleaners that might scratch your glass or do damage to the metal finish of your enclosure. Cleaners you should NOT use include:
- Vinegar or vinegar-based cleaners
- Abrasive powders
- Steel or teflon pads
