  • Glass or crystal? Method is the same.




    This was one of my jobs growing up. We had one over the dining room table.

    Hi Tammy, here is a good solution for cleaning glass objects.

    Brew strong black tea. I used 3 bags of Irish breakfast tea to 8 oz boiling water. Steep and allow to fully cool, about an hour. Transfer cleaner to spray bottle or dip cotton cloth into solution.

    Clean with a lot of patience, soft rag and good quality glass cleaner. I start at top and work my way down. Have to clean individually all beads, crystal and stems. Don't forget to clean the light bulbs.

    I use a solution of vinegar and water for crystal. If there are crystal drops on your chandelier, they need to be cleaned individually unless you can remove them.

    Hi Tammy: You're not going to believe this, but there is a product you just spray on and that's it! Home Depot carries it. It says: Pamper your chandeliers and other crystal valuables with Hagerty Chandelier Cleaner. Eliminate the drudgery of time-consuming hand cleaning. Simply cover the floor underneath and spray on your chandelier or crystal. The dirt and grime will conveniently trickle off leaving your crystals and fixtures immaculate and sparkling.
