Cleaning:

Light fixtures require regular cleaning just like other household fixtures. Clean and clear light fixtures not only look better, but they also shine brighter. Sparkling lights and fixtures provide more light and beauty to a home than fixtures that are ignored. You'll find that cleaning your light fixtures on a regular basis is well worth the effort. 

Crystal Chandeliers

There's no other light fixture quite as lovely as a crystal chandelier. The beautiful hanging crystals capture the light as they glimmer and glisten like drops of rain in the sunshine. When a crystal chandelier is clean, it reflects the cleanliness of the surroundings and the beauty of the home. 

With dozens of multifaceted hanging crystals, cleaning a crystal chandelier seems like a time-consuming chore, but you don't have to take it apart. There's an easy way to clean a crystal chandelier, and you'll be amazed by how quick and effortless it truly is. 

Begin by placing thick absorbent towels on the floor beneath the chandelier. Cover the towels with several layers of newsprint. So that moisture doesn't get into light sockets, cover the bulbs and sockets with small plastic bags, and secure them with rubber bands or twist ties. 

Thoroughly spray each hanging crystal with glass cleaner. The dirt, dust, and grime will run off and onto the newsprint. Allow them to drip dry, or polish them individually with a clean soft cloth. Your crystal chandelier will shine beautifully, and you won't spend all day taking it apart, cleaning it, and putting it back together.
