During spring cleaning, it’s essential to pay close attention to all your lighting fixtures and bulbs. Over time, dust accumulates on shades and bulbs, dirt and grime build up on metal and glass fixtures, and bugs and debris can get trapped inside pendant lights and chandeliers. Taking the time to thoroughly yet gently clean your lighting will make a huge difference in your home’s ambiance and appearance. 

In this guide, we will walk through step-by-step tips and tricks for cleaning all the different components of your lighting fixtures. We’ll cover everything from wiping down metal surfaces to cleaning delicate crystal and fabric shades. We will also share some cautionary tales of what NOT to do, so you avoid damaging your beautiful lights. By the end, your lighting will look refreshed and renewed – just in time for summer! The glow of a sparkling clean fixture can truly transform the look and feel of a room.
