Cleaning and Maintenance Instructions
Polish the glass with a spray of water and a lint free cloth. Ensure the light is switched off when cleaning and care
must be taken not to pull the flex or allow water to fall on the fitment. Regular dusting with a feather duster will also
help keep the glass clean.
We recommend a light polish with a non-abrasive lint free cloth. Do not use metal cleaning polish on patinated
surfaces as this will damage the finish.
Wipe with a clean damp cloth then dry off with a lint free polishing cloth.
