3 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Glass Cleaning, Answered

Today, we are here to answer 3 of the most frequently asked questions about glass cleaning so you can achieve a spotless clean every time.

1. What is the best cleaner for cleaning glass?

The best cleaner for cleaning glass is a mild, non-abrasive solution specifically designed for glass surfaces. When choosing a glass cleaner, opt for ammonia-free options as ammonia-based products can damage certain types of glass, such as stained or tinted glass. Luckily, we have quite a few eco-friendly, non-abrasive specialised glass cleaning options in our Glassguard range.

2. How do I clean glass without leaving streaks?

To clean glass without leaving streaks, simply follow these steps:

  1. Clean loose dust and debris from the surface by wiping with a microfibre cloth.
  2. Spray your glass cleaning solution onto the glass or dampen a microfibre cleaning cloth with the fluid.
  3. Gently wipe the glass using vertical or horizontal strokes, avoiding circular motions.
  4. Once the entire surface is clean, buff the glass gently with a clean, dry microfibre cloth.

3. Can I use vinegar to clean glass?

While vinegar is said to be an effective cleaning agent for many cleaning tasks, it is definitely not recommended for cleaning glass. Vinegar is mildly acidic, which can potentially etch and damage glass surfaces over time. Instead, opt for a glass cleaner specifically formulated for the purpose to clean your glass without the risk of damage or streaking.

BONUS: Avoid cleaning your glass on sunny days because the heat from the sun can cause the cleaning solution to evaporate quickly, leaving streaks and residues on the glass surface.
