Man I hope this isn't dumb question, but can you use Pledge spray on canvas prints?

Sure, you can do whatever you want but tell us,
what are you after, what is your final goal, Travis?

Some ingredients in the spray will loosen dirt and
catch it as others stay on the surface and produce
a shine.

All these chemicals may react on short or long term
with the print and possibly damage it irreversibly. 
Maybe your print has a protective finish?

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Clean, dust free canvas.   Not sure what sort of coating is on it.  I better check the canvas shop.  

But I think I'll just take the suggestions here and not use it.

I wouldn't. Just use a microfiber cloth is all I use.

A microfiber cloth or perhaps a Swiffer.

That's a funny mention, last evening I saw my wife floating around the house dusting everything including two canvas prints, and she said she was using her new "Swiffer". Seemed to do a great job with very light touch.
Who would have thunk it?

Unless the canvas shop gave it to me, I wouldn't spray it on the print.

Hey thanks again everyone.  


BTW is there any sort of spray you recommend that will protect canvas against dust.

It needs no more protection from dust than anything else. What is your concern?

I'm not a canvas print master, as I see it, it can't hurt to ask on this forum.  Who knows, some other tip might surface.
