To deal with this problem you do not need any expensive stuff, all you need is bread or bagel. Yes, doughy white bread is all you need to bring the life back to the old painting. There is more to bagels than cream cheese and salmon. You need only the interior surface of the bread, otherwise you risk to damage the paint. You have two options, to cut bagel or baguette in half, or to get a load of bread. Pick up the squishy white part that most of us prefer eating.
The next step is to rub that soft part of bread all over the painting. Be careful! You should not push too hard, or scrub. To get the best result, all you need to do is to run the bread all over the filthy surface. In this situation the bread acts like a sponge and it will collect all the dust, grime and grossness, according to the professionals from domestic cleaning in Sydney company.

Take another piece of bread and repeat the step, this final rub will make sure that all the grime is gone, for a long time.
