How Do You Clean A Sneeze Guard?

Most screen guards are manufactured from some form of plastic / acrylic. Keeping them clean is easy and takes moments.

    • Simply clean the screen at room temperature with warm water and a mild soap or detergent. Ideally use a microfiber cloth, and wear disposable gloves.
    • Rinse with clean cold water.
    • Dry with a soft sponge to prevent water spots.

Never use abrasive or highly alkaline or ammonia based cleaners. Never scrape with squeegees, razor blades or other sharp instruments. Never use benzene, acetone, or carbon tetrachloride to clean the sneeze guard as these can and will result in etching, surface crystallization, decomposition, and stress fractures – breeding grounds for bacteria and virus.
