How do you clean a Crystal Chandelier?
It's on a very high ceiling and cannot be taken down. It's dusty and the crystal's need cleaning.
This is what somebody told me, who is actually quite an expert on such things:
Put it in the bath tub with washing-up liquid. Leave it there for a whlie, and if it's very dirty, leave it over night. Let out the water, shower it off, and leave it there to dry.
Apparently, that's everything. I asked if it would need polishing etc., and apparently it doesn't. Good thing, too; would be very time consuming.
If you can't take it down, blow the dust off it with a can of air, then dip a piece of terry towelling in white vinegar to rub off any remaining dust and smudges. The terry won't leave fluff or create scratches, and the white vinegar will put the sparkle back. We're renovating an old home so we had a couple of drab old chandeliers that needed this attention when they couldn't be safely removed for cleaning.
Hope this helps.
