    For many interior designers, keeping expensive lights and shades clean can prove to be a tricky process.

    To help combat this, Delightfull has complied a list of tips on how to keep your light fixtures clean and tidy.

    Preparation:

    Before you start to clean, unplug the light from its power source. Unscrew any articulations and take off any light bulbs.

    Iron, aluminium and copper:

    The best way to clean lamps that are made of iron, aluminium or copper is by using a clean soft cloth and wipe the lamp clean. Lamps with a solid metal base can also be polished using lemon oil. The best tip is to be careful when wiping the lamp, always using gentle motions.

    Brass:

    Brass bases are lacquered to prevent tarnishing, which means that using a brass cleaner isn’t usually necessary. To maintain the finish, you can use a clean and soft cloth to wipe your lamp down. This will ensure you will have a shiny and clean lamp at all times.

    Lacquered colours:

    In order to clean all the colourful parts of your lamp, you should make sure to use a clean and soft white cloth. If you prefer, you can dampen your cloth with a little soapy water, which will help to keep the dust away for longer. You should thoroughly rinse the cloth in clean water and then re-do the whole process to ensure optimum cleaning.

    Marble:

    For marble lamps, you can again use a clean cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt. You can also opt for a little soapy water for a more intense clean.
