how to care for your stained glass

Simply dust your stained glass most of the time and when needed, wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth. To remove fingerprints, I recommend using distilled water or ammonia free glass cleaner. Don't over wet the cloth, spray the glass or allow water to leak between the glass seams. Never submerge your stained glass in liquid, use a scouring pad, steel wool or anything that contains ammonia or abrasive cleansers.

For leadwork and trays, a patina or darkening of the lead and solder is a natural part of the process. Waxing with a soft cloth can help remove oxidation, but overwaxing copper patinas may damage the finish.

Fused glass and wall hangings made with waxed cord are intended for indoor use only.
