Cleaning a batik painting is a bit different than cleaning other types of paintings. Batik paintings are made with wax, so you need to be careful not to damage the wax. The best way to clean a batik painting is to use a soft, dry cloth. Gently wipe the surface of the painting, being careful not to rub the wax too hard. You can also use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to remove dust from the surface of the painting.
