Methods for cleaning a droplet chandelier in glass or crystal

All chandeliers need some periodic maintenance to ensure that they are always shiny and bright. Below you will find some suggestions to help you in these operations and to clean them easily. There are several efficient methods and products to clean a drip chandelier:

  • First, turn off the power
  • Get some rags or newspapers and place them under the chandelier
  • If you use cleaning products for chandeliers, spray the product abundantly directly on the crystals, so that it drips on the newspapers placed on the floor and removes the dirt
  • Be careful not to spray the product inside the lamp holders otherwise when you turn on the light you could cause a short circuit
  • When you finish dripping the cleaner, the chandelier will be clean and shiny again
  • If you want to get a better effect, when the chandelier is still wet, gently rub the drops with a soft cloth
  • For cleaning you can also use natural products, creating mixtures of warm water and lemon, or water and vinegar, or water and bicarbonate, which can be sprayed with an aerator on the crystals and then rubbed with a cloth to remove dirt and dry them .

Methods for cleaning a Murano glass chandelier

There are several efficient methods and products to clean a Murano glass chandelier:

  • To begin with, disconnect the power and wait for the bulbs and glass to cool down, otherwise when you spray the solution on the glass you could risk breaking it due to the thermal shock
  • Get a ladder and unscrew all the bulbs, remove them holding the candle with one hand, otherwise it could rotate on itself and wind up the electric wires.
  • Start removing the leaves and flowers that are inserted into the central disc of the chandelier and place them on a soft surface
  • Fill a basin with warm water and add a product to clean the glass
  • If you prefer a more ecological but equally functional system, put warm water and white vinegar in a basin (2 glasses of vinegar for two liters of water)
  • Immerse the components of the chandelier one by one in the solution of water and vinegar, taking care to immerse only the glass parts, and not the part of the plaster case which is at the base of flowers and leaves, because if this were immersed the plaster would be ruined, thus damaging the correct functioning of the joint between the shells and the center disc
  • Dampen a cloth with warm water and vinegar, and rub it gently on the entire glass structure of the chandelier and on all the components that you could not remove, dry them with a microfiber cloth. At this point, reposition all the flowers, leaves and components that you previously disassembled and you will see that your chandelier will shine again like the first day.
