How to clean Swarovski crystal home décor
Items such as toasting flutes and vases require more intensive cleaning in order to remove any residue.
Wash and dry your hands.
Fill a large, clean bowl with lukewarm water (around 30°C) and add mild, pH neutral dish detergent. Do not use boiling water as it may damage your piece.
Hold your Swarovski piece in one hand. Use the other hand to gently rinse the entire product, including the base, without fully submerging it.
Rinse with clean water, taking care to remove any traces of soap.
Dry the inside and outside of the piece thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth*.
More care tips to keep your Swarovski decorations at their best
Some of our larger decoration pieces are delivered with a pair of white cotton gloves. These gloves should be worn when handling these products to protect the crystals and avoid leaving fingerprints.
Ensure that hanging ornaments are placed in a secure position where they cannot fall or come into contact with hard objects.
Things to avoid
Avoid soaking products in water: keep contact with water to a minimum, and always dry products thoroughly immediately after washing.
Make sure that your decorations do not come into contact with harsh, abrasive materials or glass cleaners, as these can damage the crystals.
