You know that having a glass table top on your favorite piece of furniture can really make it stand out… that is until it is covered with fingerprints, food residue, or dust. The good news is that getting your glass table top sparkly clean again isn’t too difficult. Get your glass tabletop clean with these four steps…
Step 1: Clear the Space
The first step to getting a sparkling clean table top is to first clear the space by removing everything on top. If your glass table top is used in the dining room for eating, be sure to remove all plates, cups, or table runners.. If your tabletop is used as an accent table or coffee table, remove any decorative items, books, or coasters. Getting a completely clean surface is only possible when it is first completely clear.
Step 2: Wipe With a Dry Cloth
To begin, you want to remove as much dust and non-sticky messes as possible.This is easily done by using a dry microfiber cloth and wiping down your glass table top.
Step 3: Use Water to Wipe a Second Time
Once you’ve removed the dry particles, it’s time to use a little water to really get your glass table top clean. Start with plain hot water and spray your table top. Then, using a clean microfiber cloth, wipe down the glass. Water works well for cleaning because it won’t leave streaks and you won’t have to worry about any reactions with the glass and any unknown chemicals found in cleaners. Continue to wipe, focusing on sticky spots until your table top is clean.
If you have some stubborn spots that the water just can’t seem to cut through, spritz a little vinegar on the area and wipe with a dry, clean microfiber cloth.
Step 4: Dry and Shine
Once you’ve removed all of the dust, fingerprints, and sticky messes from your glass table top, you’ll want to make sure it is completely dry so that you aren’t left with any streaks on your newly cleaned surface. Simply use a dry, clean microfiber cloth and wipe the surface until all water or vinegar residue is gone. Want to give your tabletop some added shine and remove any remaining dust particles or fluff from your cloths is to use newspaper! Just get an old sheet of newspaper and crumple it into a ball. Then, wipe down the table until it is shining brilliantly!
A clean glass table top is one way to add a beautiful finishing touch to your dining table, accent table, coffee table, or wet bar. You want to keep it clean and sparkling, but as you can see by these four steps, that’s not too difficult! It just takes a little water, a microfiber cloth, and you’re ready to admire your furniture again.
