For some reason, crystal chandeliers are dirt magnets. They sparkle like nothing else when clean-and look like clouded glass when soiled (which occurs all too soon after cleaning).
Let's face it, crystal chandelier-cleaning is a drippy, arm-tiring and time-consuming chore, no matter who performs the task.
How about just tossing your Swarovski or Strass crystal chandelier into the dishwasher? It appears this fantasy is now a reality, thanks to the genius of Schonbek and their remarkable Da Vinci crystal masterpieces.
Radiating remarkable brilliance (my copied photos do no justice), thousands of octagonal crystals in various sizes go into each chandelier, which is braced with stainless steel. And yes, the crystals are made by Swarovski and Strass.
To clean, just put into the dishwasher, and at the end of the cleaning cycle, a brilliant and sparkling chandelier emerges. Smaller units can be cleaned in one cycle. The cleaning of larger chandeliers may need to be dispersed over several cycles. I would assume that the round crystal "shell" is then mounted over the electrical assembly.
