To ensure your glass remains in tip-top shape for years to come, it’s crucial to treat it with care and give it some TLC.

Appropriate Cleaning Tools

When it’s time to clean your glass, be it windows, mirrors, or glass doors, make sure you’re using cleaning materials free of grit and debris. This simple precaution ensures that your cleaning routine won’t unintentionally scratch or mark the glass surface, keeping it pristine.    

Appropriate Cleaning Materials

Here at The Glass Shoppe, we recommend using detergents and cleaning solutions specifically designed for glass. Mild detergents are your best friends, ensuring a gentle yet effective cleaning process.


Avoid Corrosive Cleaners

Stay clear of cleaners that contain Hydrofluoric or Phosphoric acid – they can be pretty harsh on your glass. Trust us, you don’t want that! Avoid Harsh Cleaners: Avoid abrasive cleaners, powder-based products, scouring pads, or anything harsh when it comes to cleaning your glass. They could cause irreversible damage, and we’re all about preventing such accidents.


Avoid Tapes or Adhesives

Using tapes or adhesives on glass can sometimes lead to stains or damage unless they’re known to be easily removed. We want you to be cautious and aware of potential risks.


Careful Cleaning Method

When you’re in cleaning mode, make sure cleaning solutions don’t come into contact with the edges of laminated glass, insulating glass units, or mirrors. Paying attention to detail in your cleaning routine is the key to preserving your glass’s longevity.  

Avoid Cleaning in Direct Sunlight

Cleaning your glass when it’s scorching hot or in direct sunlight isn’t a good idea. It can lead to streaks and an uneven finish. Pick a cooler time for your glass cleaning tasks.  

Avoid Thermal Fracture

Beware of thermal fractures, which can be caused by extreme temperature changes. We recommend avoiding splashing hot water on cold glass or freezing water on hot glass.
