Since hanging the mason jar lights over a year ago...
The aqua glass had become cloudy.
They'd taken on a milky cloud that was thick and powdery.
Which dimmed the light they gave out. Kind of like they'd been sitting in hard water.
But really, they'd just been near a light bulb. I was skeptical on how well they'd clean up.
Cloudy is not cool.
I hate troubleshooting maintenance crap like this.
(But at the same time I love it.)
I guess I hate when there's a problem, but I like finding the solution.
I'm a complex girl.
Thank goodness, the solution was easy.
I soaked them in Dawn Dish Washing Liquid.
The built up film was actually pretty thick and took some scratching off with my fingernail.
But when I soaked it instead, it came right off.
So now, going forward I'll know every few months to wash the jars to clear them.
Clear is better!
(for picture taking purposes I took out the lightbulb.)
I hope this helps with your own mason jar lights.
