How To Clean Your Crystal Chandelier
The Crystal Place recommends the use of Brillianté Crystal Cleaner for all your crystal chandelier and crystal cleaning needs. Brillianté Crystal Cleaner is a showroom tested formula developed for maintaining and preserving crystal and crystal chandeliers. The motorized power spray bottle is ideal for cleaning large chandeliers and lighting fixtures that previously needed to be disassembled and reassembled (Using Brillianté does not require chandelier parts to be disassembled and reassembled). Brillianté Crystal cleaner also works well as a glass and mirror surface cleaner.

2. Place a towel or other absorbent material underneath the fixture to catch the excess solution which may drop from the fixture.
3. Hold sprayer 3-6 inches away from fixture. Generously spray fixture starting from the working your way up and then down until all surfaces are thoroughly coated.
Keep the fixture stationary while you maneuver around it.
NEVER SPIN THE FIXTURE AS THIS MAY CAUSE THE CHANDELIER OR ITS CRYSTALS TO FALL.
