How to Take Care of Crystal Figurines
Crystal is a high quality form of glass, produced with lead oxide which creates light reflection. All pieces are delicate and need to be cleaned with care.
Remember, most damage happens when cleaning or moving pieces. Therefore, you have to be careful each time you clean a piece. When moving objects, always carry one object or one part of an object at a time. It is best to place your hands around the body of the object rather than using an existing handle, rim, or spout for support. In general, it is not a good idea to routinely wash the pieces. Each time a piece is handled for cleaning there is a greater risk of breakage through accidents and mishandling. It is better to protect pieces from soiling and dust in the first place, rather than washing them too often.
To maintain the beauty and power of your crystals, always keep them in a cabinet away from dust. Objects should be kept free of dust, debris, and oily residues. Keeping in a cabinet also prevents the items to be broken. Store individual glass objects separately. Do not stack or crowd items and be sure they are kept well back from the edge of the shelf. Avoid wrapping glass in tissue or newspaper, which may attract and hold dampness. When the piece has dust on it,. we recommend you to use “Blow Dryer” on cool air to get rid of dust. Remember that, fine crystal and glassware can crack or break when subjected to extremes of hot and cold. Lighting candles in candleholders is also not recommended. If the item has fingerprints on it, we never recommend you to place it in dishwasher. Fingerprints will disappear when you use a small amount of glass cleaner with a soft, lint free cloth or wash your fine crystal and glassware by hand in moderately warm water with a mild lemon detergent and 1/4 cup ammonia (to prevent spotting). Rinse in clean water and air dry on a rack.
It is believed that crystal heals and balances bio-energy. It can also convert daily life’s negative energy to positive. Therefore, we recommend you to hang our Crystal ornaments on your windows or on your car to bring all the reflections of Sunlight in and the positive energy.
