HOW SHOULD I CLEAN MY LIGHT FITTINGS?
It may sound obvious but please ensure that the light is switched off and the bulbs have cooled down before doing any cleaning! The brass, metal or painted frames of light fittings should only need a dusting from time to time with a feather duster or soft brush. Brass fittings are often coated with a lacquer to stop tarnishing so please do not use abrasive cleaning products on your fittings. If your brass lights are not coated they will over time develop an attractive rich natural antique patina.
The best way to clean crystal is by using a small amount of mild washing up liquid diluted in water. Use a cotton glove to rub over each crystal with the soapy water and then use a dry glove to dry them. If you are able to remove the crystals for cleaning you can immerse them in the soapy water, rinse with clear water and leave to dry naturally before refitting. Please ensure you make a note of where the crystals go before removing them, otherwise you could end up in real trouble!
If you are lucky enough to have a large crystal chandelier it may be worth buying some special crystal or chandelier cleaner. You can then spray the crystal decorations with the cleaner and leave them to drip dry - place a suitable cloth underneath the light to catch the drips.
