Time to clean the chandelier.
Go get your umbrella. I’ll wait.
I’m still waiting. Geesh, this is taking forever. Already gone through two songs.
Oh hi. you’re back. Good.
Let’s get started.
Turn off the light. The crystals or glass clean so much easier when cold.
Hang that umbrella on the chandelier. It will catch dust, cobwebs, more dust that you blow off with a hair dryer or spray with a can of air. It will also catch any drips of magic elixir that may sprinkle down. (Seriously, you do not want this to turn into an all day long project and have to wash your bed linens, too? Well? Of course not.)
Next, mix up the magic elixir.
2 cups warm water, 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol and 2 Tablespoons of the dishwasher spot remover
You will need a soft cloth and a ladder/step stool.
Um, I am pretty sure you know what to do. Stand there for several minutes while the blood drains out of your arms and wash each little beautiful crystal. Are your arms tingling? Good. That’s a sign you are doing it right!
Your goal is to change every single dusty, film covered, sad crystal drop into a beautiful sparkle of a gem.
Put on your sunnies, ’cause you’re going to need ’em!
Wow! So sparkly. So pretty.
Put away the ladder, toss the soft cloth into your laundry pile, and wash the container you put the elixir in.
Take the umbrella outdoors and open and close a few times. The neighbors will think you are a bit silly. Wave and give them a jaunty salute! Howdy Neighbor!!
Now wasn’t that easy peasy?
Just sharing the goodness.
In this together, friend.
P.S. Be a lamb and share a smarty pants cleaning tip! Love to hear your secret.
