How do you clean antique kerosene lamps?

Answer

To clean antique kerosene lamps, empty kerosene from the reservoir if any and fill it with detergent and hot water. Leave the combination of the detergent and hot water to settle for thirty minutes then pour it and repeat the same step. Use a brush with stiff bristles to clean the parts of the reservoir and rinse it with hot water. Apply vegetable oil and polish the metal parts with soft old linen. Use this process to clean any antique stove. To clean the lamp`s globe or chimney, immense it in warm water and detergent and remove soot using a brush. Rinse it with warm water and wipe the glass with lint-free linen.
