Here is a easy, quick, and mess free way to clean a chandelier. First, put some old towels or other rags on the floor or table under the chandelier, then spread several layers of newspaper over the towels. Since you don't want any moisture getting into the sockets, cover each bulb with a small plastic bag and hold in place with a tie twist.

Next, spray with enough window cleaner so that the dirt runs off onto the newspaper. The pendants can then drip dry or you can polish with a soft cloth for more shine.

When chandelier is dry, just throw away the newspaper and put the rags away if they didn't get wet. Now you have a shiny, clean chandelier!

Vinegar and water mixture (1 part vinegar to 2 to 3 parts water) using a soft rag and lots of patience to clean each part. Since it's a delicate old porcelain chandelier I would personally not use any harsh chemicals on it.
