Just a few tips from Barbara ~
Always remove any hardware before you begin cleaning your piece.
Paint does not stick to dirt, oil and all the other grime on a piece. You have to remove all of that debris before you apply your paint in order to get a professional finish.
Go over your piece multiple times to make sure you have gotten it completely clean.
