Quick Tips for Cleaning Glass.

Apart from the WnJ Services article ‘Quick Tips for Cleaning Antique Glass’, we would also like to introduce some useful steps to cleaning conventional glass in your home. Windows, mirrors and dishes are classified under conventional glass.

Steps to Cleaning Glass

  1. Set the glass in hot or warm water. Glass is best cleaned in heat or somewhat hot temperature water. If you are cleaning glass such as a window, mirror, dish, car, or items with a glass covering, if possible, use heat to clean the glass. You can also steam clean glass. Be careful not to get the temperature too high. The heat from any tool may break the glass, so the right temperature is important.
  2. Use a glass cleaner to cleanse the glass. Sometimes, you can use a natural substance to clean glasses as well. For instance lemon, orange or vinegar are all natural substances that can be used to clean glass. This is an excellent way to clean glass.
  3. Wipe the glass. Most towels are cotton based. Cotton is left behind when wiped. This is a frustration to most housekeepers when cleaning. The best tool to wipe glass is the material that is used to wipe eye glasses. Micro-Fiber cloths are an excellent way to remove oily smudges and streaks. You can also use a hot towel to wipe the glass. A cold towel usually will not work. It will leave streaks if you use a cold towel.
  4. Use a towel with a backward and forward motion. Start from the top and work toward the bottom. This will allow you to keep excessive water out of the way. Try using the forward and backward motions then try after the glass is dry circular motions to see the shine. This whole process should take less than five minutes once you get the hang of it. It is a very easy process to clean any glass, big or small.


  • Try natural base chemicals over high toxic chemicals to protect the environment.
  • Try heat over cold when cleaning.
  • Try a hot towel to keep cotton from getting on the glass.


  • Be mindful of hot temperatures as it can cause glass to break.
  • Stay in budget because Micro-Fiber Cloth is expensive.
