Items you will need
Mild abrasive acrylic polish (optional)
Cleaning an acrylic backboard might seem to be a difficult task because of the height of the backboard and the complexity of acrylic material. Acrylic is scuffed easily and can mildew, giving it a dingy appearance. However, an acrylic backboard can be cleaned with common household items. Whether your backboard is used for family fun or a championship game, making it clear and free of scuff marks will benefit players and spectators alike.
Place a ladder underneath the backboard. Secure it on a level, firm surface.
Wipe the backboard with a soft cloth to eliminate dust and loose dirt that can cause scratches and scuffs.
Soak a clean, soft cloth in warm water and apply a small amount of dish detergent to the cloth. Wipe the backboard with the cloth until it is clear and free of dirt.
Apply a mild acrylic polish to a clean, soft cloth, if scratches or scuff marks are on the backboard. Rub the cloth vigorously over the scratches until they are smooth.
