Various glass surfaces need different cleaning methods

Taking care of glass surfaces in your home can be quite tedious, especially when trying to avoid streaks. Mirrors and glass furniture are the trickiest in this regard.

However, experts suggest that you don't need to spend hours or put in a lot of effort to get rid of streaks and fingerprints on these surfaces. OBOZREVATEL has gathered some effective life hacks for glass care.

Bathroom mirrors

Bathroom mirrors often accumulate water splashes, lime stains, and cosmetic residue from toothpaste and shower gel. They also tend to fog up. To clean bathroom mirror surfaces effectively, start by removing excess dirt and marks with a glass cleaner. Then, polish them with a microfiber cloth, using a circular motion to prevent streaks.

Glass countertops

Glass countertops can gather sticky grease traces and other contaminants. The best way to remove them is to use isopropyl alcohol, which you can apply via spraying or by using a cloth. Afterward, wipe the surface clean with a microfiber cloth.

Kitchen backsplashes

Glass backsplashes in the kitchen look stylish but can easily collect splatters that dry onto the surface. To clean them, use a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water. Apply it to the glass, leave it for a few minutes, and then wipe it off with a microfiber cloth.

Interior windows

Modern interiors often feature glass partitions or doors, which serve as interior windows. They allow more light into the room, creating a bright and airy atmosphere. However, they are prone to visible stains. To prevent them, you can create a mixture of water and lemon juice. This solution effectively dissolves typical dirt found on these surfaces and leaves a pleasant aroma. Always wipe the window with a microfiber cloth before and after using this mixture to remove dust particles and give the glass a polished shine.

Screens

Screens of TVs, tablets, and phones play an important role in the overall perception of the interior. Cleaning them can be more challenging than regular glass. The best way to clean screens is by using plain water in small amounts applied with a microfiber cloth. Wipe the screens with gentle, light movements. It's advisable to perform such cleaning as often as possible.
