Use the hanging cord to lift or inspect the ornament. Use a soft lint-free cloth or clean with a mild household window cleaning solution. Never rub or press too hard when cleaning. Do not immerse in any liquids for long periods of time. A small unused watercolor paintbrush or a cotton swab will gently remove any dust particles. Never stack heavy objects on top of the presentation box. No box? Store it in a non-acidic tissue paper. Storage containers are also readily available at most collectible stores. All ornaments should not be subjected to extreme temperature and humidity changes.
