How to Properly Maintain Glass Furniture

Glass table tops are beautiful and elegant. There is just one problem with them. Fingerprints, smudges, and streaks galore. If you have kids – especially little ones – glass can be a nightmare. Keeping glass shiny and clean can be much simpler if you know the proper cleaning techniques. We have accumulated the best ways to take care of glass so that you can be sure to lengthen the life of any and all of your glass furniture.

1. What Cleaner? The best cleaner to use on glass can be economically made at home. Just mix 1/3 parts white vinegar to 2/3 parts water and administer to the glass using newspaper to prevent streaking and lint.

2. What Not to Use? Products containing ammonia or acids should always be avoided. These chemicals destroy edges and back lining of glass pieces. You should also ditch paper towels and utilize newspaper instead. This will stop lint from building up on your furniture.

3. How Do You Protect the Glow? If you place anything on your glass furniture – plates, glasses, decorations – make sure you use placemats, coasters, and other drapery that will protect the glass from any scratches or dings in the surface.

Whether you already have glass furniture or you’re thinking about purchasing a new piece for your kitchen, living room, or dining room, theses tips will help you make sure that your furniture has the “new furniture glow” for its entire life.
