How to clean Old Singer Sewing Machine?

I have a Singer that is over 100 years old. It is in very good condition but needs to be cleaned. What is the best way, without damaging the gold decals?

    Don't clean it with anything other than slightly damp sponge...LIGHTLY...or dust it...

    I agree. Better yet, contact Singer and they would be the best resource.

    Great antique. I would have it appraised before doing anything to it (just a suggestion) because if you ever think of selling it, the natural wear and petena is part of the character and value as it helps collectors assess the value.

    I would take it to an appraiser and see what they say before messing with it since you may lose value for tampering with its current condition.

    Is this an electric machine? If you are speaking of the working parts it is a job for a professional. If just for the metal (those are not decals, which would be pieces of plastic or paper glued on) wash it with murphy's soap and water and wipe it dry.
