ornament Cleaning your christmas ornaments..

I am just curious what do any of you use to clean your ornaments with? I have used Windex on them and it has peeled some of the paint off of the ball or has caused the shiny stuff to flake or chip off.. Any suggestions? besides not cleaning them at all?

i've used an air compressor as far as getting dust or any kind of hard set mold or whatever obviously at low psi but if i'm just doing light buffing i take a q-tips dipped in a solution depending on the type of ornament

You can never go wrong with a swiffer duster!

the swiffer duster is what I use for my ornaments. Then you don't have to worry about paint coming off....Air duster is a great option as well. :*

I never thought of the swifter! Thanks for the tip, I sure will try it..
Sometimes the bulbs/ornaments get kinda dusty after they have been up for a while ya know.. I like to clean them while unpacking them..I am going to do the swifter this year!
