Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays: 28 Day Challenge – Day 7
This time of year where we live means shorter days, so I find myself wanting to do whatever I can to bring more light into our home. Washing light fixtures and lampshades is an easy way to brighten things up a bit.
How you clean them depends on the type of fixture or shade you’re cleaning. A sink of hot, soapy dishwater and a gentle cloth will get your glass fixtures gleaming, whereas you might use a vacuum attachment or a microfiber cloth for fabric or paper lampshades. Some lampshades, such as silk, require professional cleaning. If you have fixtures in need of professional cleaning, this is the time!
Now when the holidays arrive, entertaining by candlelight is just an option rather than a necessity to hide your dirty lampshades!
