Learn how to clean light fixtures with Pine-Sol and make light cleaning easier.

  • step 1
    Turn off lights and lamps to cool the bulbs down. You'll want to do this during the day when there's enough light to see the fixtures clearly while you clean.
  • step 2
    Dilute ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® in a gallon of warm water.
  • step 3
    Apply a small amount of the mixture to a cloth, paper towel or sponge, and gently clean lights and lamps as needed. Be careful not to let moisture seep into wiring or bulb contacts.
  • step 4
    Use a step ladder to remove any overhead light fixtures that need a wipe down.
  • step 5
    Dip an old toothbrush in the mixture to reach crevices like lamp cover corners or lamp base angles.
