Habit: Cleaning Your Light Fixtures

by StephBuckwalter on August 10, 2012

Because they are so far above eye level, light fixtures often get ignored. Hopefully you don’t have to clean any that look like this:


Make it a habit to clean them thoroughly once a year. Remove covers or shades and clean those, too. The rest of the year, dust or wipe down as needed. Kitchen fixtures tend to get greasy as well as dusty so they may require extra scrubbing or a cleaner designed to cut grease

    Have any tips on cleaning one that DOES look like that?

    Unfortunately, I think it’s just a tedious process of cleaning off each crystal individually. You can do that with a dry microfiber cloth. I believe there is a wet method to cleaning it, but I’ve never seen it done.
