How To Clean a Crystal Chandelier

A chandelier is a beautiful light fixture, no matter its size, because it reflects natural and artificial light. The result is a sparkling array and rainbows of illumination. Like anything in the home, a chandelier can become dirty.Learning how to clean a crystal chandelier is valuable because it is often tricky due to its delicate nature and the fact that its location may be difficult to reach.

Needed items:

  • Ladder
  • Water
  • Chandelier cleaner or mild detergent
  • Clean cloths or towels
  • Baking soda
  • Cotton swabs

Step 1: Use the ladder to get on eye level with the chandelier. This makes cleaning easier and prevents you from accidentally causing damage to the fixture. If the chandelier is hung from a cathedral ceiling, a professional cleaning service may need to be used to handle this task.

Step 2: Begin cleaning by wetting a piece of cloth or a towel with water and chandelier cleaner or mild detergent. Cleaner can be made from scratch using isopropyl alcohol, water, and ammonia. Clean each piece of the chandelier, being careful to avoid electrical items like wires. Any area that is very dirty can be treated with a solution of baking soda and water and then wiped with a cloth or towel dampened with water.

Step 3: Use the cotton swabs to clean areas that the cloth or towel cannot reach. Dip a swab in water and use it to wipe the piece and remove the dirt.

Step 4: If not all dirt can be removed by following the above steps, take down the chandelier. Take pictures of it to show how it looks when put together.

Step 5: Remove some pieces of the chandelier and clean them using a damp towel or cloth or the cotton swabs.

Step 6: Dry all pieces before reassembling the chandelier. Use the pictures as guides to ensure that all pieces are placed in their proper locations.

Step 7: Repeat the cleaning process every few months.
