Decide whether you can do it
Decide whether you can clean the painting yourself. If it's extremely valuable or an antique, use a professional.
Use a soft-bristle brush
Gently dust the painting with a soft-bristle brush.
Use a loaf of bread
Use the inside of the bread to remove any dirt. Break off a piece of bread and gently rub a section of the painting. When that piece is dirty, break off another piece and continue on another section.
Brush away crumbs
Brush away any excess bread crumbs.
Hang the picture
Hang or re-hang your painting. Take a moment to enjoy the satisfaction of having successfully restored your artwork.
