Glass require a little extra maintenance and care. Even those that come at a premium price need special care. Cleaning glass is not difficult. But often, we end up making mistakes we are not aware of due to certain particularities that need to be followed.

Avoid Cleaning Glass while Dry

Do not wipe glass with a piece of cloth when the glass is dry. Dust particles on the cloth can scratch the glass and make it more susceptible to damage in the future. Use a moist soft duster or damp soft cloth for cleaning glass.

Do Not Use Soap

Avoid using soap or detergents of any kind as it can end up damaging the coating on the surface of the glass. You might have a cleaner but it does not mean that it is good for cleaning glass as well. Use specialized cleaner for glass to avoid damaging.

Be Gentle on the Glass

Glass and frame require a different cleaning approach. Your door glass or window glass can attract dust particles while you are cleaning your carpet and vacuuming. So try to wipe your glass softly while you can rub harder on the rim to make it shine.

Strict ‘No’ for Paper Towels, Dry Cloth and Tissues

Avoid using paper towels, clothes and tissues as they may be soft, but may have a crude surface that can easily attract dust or scratch your residential glass or storefront glass. Use microfibers to elongate their life.

    You made a good point to “avoid cleaning glasses while dry.” Some of the dust particles such as sand or granules on the piece of cloth you’re going to use for wiping can cause scratches on the window. It is recommended that you use a wet piece of cloth and the recommended cleaning detergent for cleaning. If I were to clean my own glass door and windows, I would make sure to follow your advice.
