Cleaning Stained Glass
stained glass helps maintains its real beauty. Being comprised of several
different colors and shapes of glass, the beauty of stained glass depends on the
amount of light it receives. The amount of light and the direction the light hits
the glass can constantly change the appearance of the artwork. Cleaning stained
glass when it becomes dirty allows the maximum amount of light to pass through,
and the beauty of the stained glass is maintained. Keep your stained glass
Tiffany lamps, stained
glass panels, floor lamps, stained glass ceiling fixtures, and stained
glass wall sconces looking their best to show off their original colors.
Cleaning Your Stained
you are cleaning stained glass chandeliers or sconce lighting,
light dusting with a feather duster or dry cloth is all that is needed. However,
if the stained glass is really dirty or covered with grease and grime, follow these steps:
Before cleaning any lamp or unique light fixture,
unplug the fixture from the outlet.
Cleaning products made of opaque
stained glass, art glass, or jadestone, as well as most metal lamp bases and
fixture frames, is easy. Apply a small amount of lemon-oil based furniture
polish to a soft clean cloth and wipe gently.
Never apply polish directly to the
piece being cleaned. When cleaning light fixtures made of beveled or
transparent glass, apply a small amount of non-ammonia, non-vinegar household
glass cleaner to a soft cloth, and gently wipe the stained glass.
Never use vinegar, ammonia or any acid
based cleaner, as this will destroy the cames and solder that is holding the
stained glass pieces together.
Fixtures hanging near cooking areas in
kitchens may have heavy layers of greasy buildup or dirt. Mr. Clean Top Job® works best for cleaning
greasy buildup from stained glass. Apply the cleaner to a soft cloth, and wipe
gently. After cleaning, reapply lemon-oil based furniture polish to the shade,
for best results.
To clean shades made of mica or
fabric, wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth or a feather duster.
