Living rooms, family rooms, game rooms, and dens are all wonderful gathering places for our friends and families, making those spaces the heart and soul of our homes.

Much of a living room's personal­ity comes from the art and photos you display. Picture frames and glass don't usually get filthy dirty, but they do collect dust, residue from heat sources, and finger­prints.

Regular dusting and an occasional cleaning will keep them in good shape. To wash framed glass, dampen a cloth in mild vinegar-and-water solution, wring it almost dry, and wipe.

Don't spray liq­uid directly on the glass; it can easily seep under the frame and damage the mat or, worse, the artwork or photo.

Polish framed glass with a clean paper coffee filter or used dryer sheet; they're lint-free, and the dryer sheet will naturally repel dust.
