HOW TO CARE FOR LIGHTING WITH GLASS, MARBLE, GRANITE, AGATE AND CERAMIC
We recommend following a few simple guidelines to keep your luxury lighting beautiful for as long as possible. Before cleaning a lamp, make sure you unplug the power cord. Always make sure sprays and liquids do not touch the lamp fittings.
For general cleaning, periodically dust your lamp with a feather duster or a soft clean cloth, preferably weekly.
MARBLE, GRANITE, AND AGATE
Use lukewarm water and some mild soap to clean marble, granite, and agate. Gently wipe the surfaces with a soft, dampened cloth or chamois. Dry thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Never use cleaners with acid, ammonia, bleach, or hard chemicals and avoid paper towels and scouring pads.
Clean ceramic with lukewarm water, a pH-neutral sulfate-free cleaner, and a soft sponge or wash cloth. Avoid loofahs, scrub brushes, and other materials that may scratch the surface. If the ceramic surface is grooved, use a soft brush to dislodge dirt from the recesses. Rinse well with clean water. After washing, dry the surface with a soft cloth or chamois.
Never use abrasive materials for cleaning glass as these can cause scratches. Use suitable glass cleaning products and a microfiber cloth. If you use a chemical cleaner, be careful not to spill it on any of the surrounding finishes. After drying with a soft cloth, you can use a piece of crumpled newspaper to give the glass added sparkle and shine.
Avoid commercial household cleaners as the chemicals in these products can dull and scratch the acrylic. The best way to care for acrylic surfaces, rods, and parts is to clean with lukewarm water and a dash of liquid soap. Rinse with clear water and dry completely. Always use soft cloths for cleaning so you don't scratch the acrylic.
