I have crystal chandeliers in a few rooms in my home – and I am in love with them. They just make the entire room feel and look so stylish and luxurious.
But their beauty lies in how sparkling and clean they are which means that I have to clean them as often as possible.
To be quite honest with you, I rarely cleaned my chandelier. I started doing it more often the past couple of months – and I see amazing results.
In the beginning, I was searching for cleaning methods I could use, however, most tips and tricks I could find included taking down the chandelier and then cleaning it, however, I didn’t want to do that. It seemed like too much work and also, the chandeliers are pretty heavy.
How I Clean My Crystal Chandelier Without Removing It
The first thing I do is lay a thick blanket on the floor right under the chandelier. That way, if any pieces fall, they won’t break.
I turn off the light and mix one part of isopropyl alcohol with four parts distilled water. Next, I grab a small ladder so I can reach the chandelier and spray the cleaner on a microfiber cloth. I gently wipe everything. Lastly, in order to avoid any water stains from appearing, I wipe again with a dry cloth.
