The glass panes on the inside of exterior light fixtures can be difficult to clean. Here’s a way to make the job easier:

  • You’ll need glass cleaner, paper towels, and two foam paintbrushes with a width that fits your outdoor light fixture (we used 2” wide brushes).
  • Make sure the light bulb is cold before cleaning.
  • Spray window cleaner on one of the foam brushes, and use it to wipe the glass clean on both the inside and outside of the fixture.
  • Wipe the glass with the dry brush to remove any excess cleaner from the glass.
