Glass is very durable and easy to maintain. It is a non-porous, scratch resistant surface which is easy to clean and keep looking new. There are a few tips we want to share with you when cleaning your glass countertops and backsplashes that will help you maintain the beauty and elegance of the glass.
First things first you want to make sure that you are cleaning the glass as soon as possible. It is inevitable to splash some food on the backsplash at some point while cooking. Cleaning the mess quickly will stop the food from drying and sticking onto the glass.
Using water and cloth is really all you need when cleaning glass. Because the surface of glass is slick and non-porous it does not allow any stains to penetrate deep making it easy to simply wipe away. For more stubborn dried on stains, you may want to use some vinegar and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping. Once you have properly cleaned the area it’s also important to dry it quickly to prevent any water stains.
Commercial cleaners work great and most are not harsh enough to ruin the glass. It is always a good idea to make sure that the cleaner you are using is meant for glass surfaces so as to not use something that may erode the glass.
Maintaining your glass backsplash is also a breeze, simply maintain clean and enjoy the beauty of your kitchen! Because glass backsplashes don’t have grout areas or tiles to chip, they require little to no maintenance.
