5 Pro Tips for Choosing the Right Tools for Glass Cleaning

5 Pro Tips for Choosing the Right Tools for Glass Cleaning

Want to start properly cleaning the glass surfaces in your home, but don’t know which tools are the right ones for the job? We’ve got you covered. Whether you're tackling windows, shower doors, mirrors or other glass surfaces, choosing the right tools can make a world of difference in achieving streak-free, long-lasting results with minimal effort. To help you get the job done like a pro, here are 5 valuable tips for selecting the right tools for glass cleaning.

1. Opt for microfibre cloths

When it comes to glass cleaning, microfibre cloths are an absolute game-changer. They are soft, lint-free and ultra-absorbent, excelling at trapping dust, dirt, and grime while leaving no lint or streaks behind. Microfibre cloths are also very gentle on glass surfaces, reducing the risk of scratches and damage.

PRO TIP: Use separate microfibre cloths for cleaning and drying to maximise effectiveness.

2. Use a squeegee on large surfaces

For larger glass areas like windows and shower doors, a squeegee is a must-have cleaning tool. Squeegees allow you to cover a wide surface area with a single swipe, significantly cutting down on cleaning time. Look for squeegees with high-quality silicone blades, as they provide better contact with the glass and ensure streak-free results.

PRO TIP: Keep a squeegee in your bathroom and do a quick swipe over glass panels each time you shower for interim cleans.

3. Invest in quality glass cleaning solutions

Avoid cleaners with harsh chemicals that can damage glass over time. Instead, opt for a mild, eco-friendly, non-toxic glass cleaner that is specifically formulated for glass surfaces. From glass restoration to nanocoat protection and more, there are so many incredible high-quality glass cleaning solutions out there that don’t actually cost an arm and a leg.

PRO TIP: For a multi-purpose cleaning solution (including glass) try our new CleanerTabs, fresh on the GLASSGUARD online shelves.

4. Pick up a detailing brush

When cleaning corners, frames, and edges of glass surfaces, a detailing brush can be your secret weapon. The fine bristles of a detailing brush can easily reach into tight spots and crevices, ensuring a thorough cleaning job.

PRO TIP: Be gentle when using a detailing brush to avoid lifting any sealant or other substances that are located near corners.

5. Try a nano sponge

Glass cleaning nano sponges are designed with specialist material that is gentle and non-abrasive to glass. Using a sponge like this will help eliminate hard water stains and mineral build-up with ease. Simply wet the sponge and wipe away stains for a good-as-new finish.

PRO TIP: Use a specialised glass cleaning sponge before applying our Glass Nanocoat Solution for a streak-free clean.

Follow these tips and you'll be using just the right tools to maintain the clarity and shine of your glass surfaces over time. Happy cleaning!
