Denis Jone called and wanted us to join in the cleaning party. The Jone's were having an early spring clean-up in February, their motto was "Always do today what you can avoid tomorrow?"
This post shows the ten steps to clean, polish your clear glass gloves in your wall fixture.
Step 1: If you have two people work as a team one person to remove the lamps and replace the bulbs from the wall fixture and the second person to clean and polish each bulb. If you are alone the process takes longer because you will be doing both jobs.
Step 2: Start by using a kitchen ladder and place above the lamp that needs the bulbs cleaned. This job was done with a helper.
Step 3: First turn off the power, or turn off the lamp at the wall switch.
Step 4: Fig.2 shows that each lamp bulb needs to be removed and place them on a dry towel. The first bulb is being removed. Fig.3 shows the dust on the clear glass globes.

Step 7: Next use a towel to keep the glass globes from rolling off the vanity until they are ready to be cleaned.
Step 9: Rinse each bulb with another clean cloth.
Step 10: Now polish each bulb with a clean dry cloth until the job is done.
Step 11: The glass globes have been removed and now its time to clean up the fixture. Fig.6 shows the fixture with no bulbs and Fig.7 shows a blue towel is used to polish the lamp fixture.
Note: Do not polish inside the lamp cups, there is no need to clean this area, the bulbs will be there, if you have dust, use a vacuum cleaner or a duster to remove the excess.
