I bought this product at a local lighting store after reading the reviews here. I HATE cleaning my chandelier by hand. My wifey warned me not to buy it, but it's so cool looking when it's clean. Now I suffer twice a year. I was mentally prepared for this product to not perform, and I would have to say it wasn't ideal. My chandelier has 300 globe crystal prisms and 400 teeny-weeny ones strung like chain with gold clasps. So you see why I just had to try something else. Anyway, the store I bought it in that sells chandeliers told me they don't use the product. I asked why. They said it wasn't quite good enough for them. So, I went home, laid out my plastic with towels on top, covered the bulb sockets with the cut off fingers of nitrile gloves, and sprayed from bottom-to-top & back down as the directions say. The crystals on the bottom half were passable, but the top half was unacceptable. I got out the spray bottle & did it again, this time concentrating the spray at the dirty ones up top. I could see that the grunge wasn't going to come off, so I got out a roll of paper towels & hand-wiped all 300 globes while they hung on the lamp. Yeah, they're sorta clean now, but I have all those little dudes that aren't quite where I want them to be. I did notice early on as I was wiping that the cleaner that got on my hands dried into a sticky film, so it's safe to assume the same film is left behind on the crystals. I can easily see how this cleaner can do a passable job on certain kinds of chandeliers, ones that are up high & farther away from discerning eyes, and ones that don't have a large number of facets like mine to make the rainbow effect. But it just doesn't cut it on crystals with large numbers of facets that require exceptional clarity to sparkle brilliantly.

It's 2 hours later now, I just got all the bulbs installed, turned them on, and can see that the residue left by this cleaner prevents the high intensity sparkle/prismatic effect. After all that work I just went through I can say I'm not pleased with the results. One thing I wish I'd thought of was to spray rinse the chandelier with distilled water to get off the cleaner residue. I really want to give this a chance, I really do.

Something that's entered my mind is that the spray concept is really good. When I do my prisms by hand I usually use 100% denatured alcohol, and that is an awesome cleaner. The dirt & film fall off quickly and it dries within 10 seconds or so to absolutely perfect brilliance. The problem is spraying it liberally inside one's home is a good way to make a lot-sized crater where your house used to be, not to mention the toxic fumes you'd be breathing. There's got to be a way... I just did a side-by side comparison of Sparkle Plenty with a standard, well-known, non-ammonia glass cleaner. I sprayed the well-known cleaner on, let it drip off, then rinsed with water, and did the same with Sparkle Plenty. The crystal treated with the well known brand was brilliant & flawless. Not so with this cleaner - it had smudges & a dull film. So there you have it. I know what I'm going to clean my chandelier with next time I do this.

Used this product (Sparkle Plenty) for the first time to clean our huge chandelier. Works very good. 32oz was not enough for us as the crystal was not cleaned in 2 years. So I ordered 2 more bottles and they worked like a charm. Highly recommend this product. Very simple to use, just spray and leave them to dry for few hours (we left is alone overnight).

This cleaner is amazing for cleaning dust off those hard to clean chandeliers. I hate to admit that mine had not been cleaned in 3 years, but the Sparkle Plenty did such an awesome job that I was able to see my reflection once again.

My husband purchased this spray for our chandelier that hadn't been cleaned in years! We felt that it did a decent job. We will probably hand wash the exterior crystals on the chandelier as they still seem a bit spotty, but the interior is fine, and no one sees that too closely anyways.

This actually worked. Selling our house. Chandeliers very high and cleaning them properly not an option. So I stood on a very tall A frame ladder and sprayed away. The amount of dirty drips was amazing. We just laid out a couple of rags on the floor below. Worked great. Seriously shocked at how well it worked.

Out of all the chandelier sprays this is the best. Does not leave a coating on the crystal and the shine is dazzling.

This worked great! The chandelier had not been cleaned in years and was not sparkly anymore. I covered up the table under it with an old shower curtain and gave the chandelier a good spraying. I wiped off some of the larger crystals as they were really quite dingy. Then I let the rest drip. After about 1/2 hour I gave the whole thing another quick spraying. Let it drip dry and the beautiful sparkly chandelier is back to as good as it looked when it was new.

I needed to clean my crystal chandelier but was afraid I would break some of the tear drops and this product you just spray on and let it dry naturally and it brings back the beautiful sparkle to the crystals.

OK seriously?! You people who are posting bad reviews of this product either (1) didn't read the instructions and don't know how to use it, or (2) have TOTALLY unrealistic expectations of how this product is supposed to work. I just used this on a chandelier that has not been cleaned since 1974. Really. Since 1974. It looks BEAUTIFUL after using Sparkle Plenty - granted, it took two coats, but that's what it SAID on the bottle might happen if the chandelier is really dirty. And it was caked with 40 years of dust, grease and dirt, so yeah, it took two coats of it to make it sparkle. But OMG does it sparkle. It basically looks like I walked out and bought a $500 chandelier and brought it home, new. This is no easy chandelier, either - this is one of those old-fashioned style chandeliers with, say, 450 individual tiny pieces of crystal. There's NO way I was going to clean them all by hand. Saved me several hours of work, and probably did a better job. Will keep a bottle of this handy from now on, and will probably use on all the other light fixtures in my house as well.

I have a crystal chandelier that belonged to my Mother (I remember her using this when I was growing up and still living at home). I searched for Sparkle Plenty in the stores WalMart, Home Depot, etc and couldn't find it and was thrilled when I found it at Amazon. This is great stuff and makes cleaning crystal or any light fixture an easy task - cover the floor, spray it on and let it drip dry - CLEAN AND SPARKLING!
