Keeping Your Indoor Light Fixtures Clean

Keeping Your Indoor Light Fixtures Clean

Your light fixtures will get dirty over time. When they get dirty, they start using more energy than you might think they do so they can provide light.

Your light fixtures will get dirty over time. When they get dirty, they start using more energy than you might think they do so they can provide light. Here’s how you can keep your indoor light fixtures clean all year long.

For Chandeliers

First of all, it’s a good idea to dust all of your chandeliers every week. This will ensure they will be brighter than before you got the dust off. That said, you still need to deep clean them. Once a year, give your chandeliers a thorough wash. If you have a small chandelier, take it down and spread it out on the table. Mix some dish soap with white vinegar and water and rinse off each crystal.

For Light Bulbs

Light bulbs can be cleaned too. All you need is a dry cloth to clean dirt, dust, and other grime. Don’t use a damp cloth, which can damage the wiring inside the lightbulb. Before you get started, switch off the circuit supplying the lights with power so you don’t get hurt while you’re cleaning your light fixtures. It’s also safer if you put some tape over the light switch to tell everyone else in your family not to play with the lights while you’re trying to get them clean.

For Ceiling Lights

Regular ceiling lights can get incredibly dirty as well. To clean these light fixtures, take the cover and carefully place the light into a mixture of soap and water. Use a microfiber cloth to dry it off once you’re done. Doing this will get rid of the dust, cobwebs, and bugs that will find a way into your ceiling lights. Don’t put your lights into the dishwasher – while you might think this is more effective, it will only damage the dishwasher and your light fixtures, too.
