HOW TO CARE FOR GLASS, MIRRORS AND ACRYLIC
As beautiful as glass is, it’s also fragile and sensitive. In the right conditions, it can endure for hundreds of years, whether it’s clear glass, smoked glass, black glass or mirror glass.
Since damage to the surface can easily detract from its original beauty, taking precautions is worthwhile. Do not place anything that has rough and sharp bases on a glass surface. Avoid scratches and water rings on glass tabletops by using coasters and felt pads.
Plain hot water makes the best everyday cleaner for glass surfaces and mirrors. Use appropriate glass cleaning solutions and a microfiber cloth for cleaning. If you are using a chemical cleaner, take care not to spill it on any of the surrounding finishes. Never use abrasive materials as they may cause scratches on the surface.
First remove any dust and other non-sticky spills. Then spray water onto the surface with a spray bottle. Plain hot water works best since it leaves no streaks. Wipe the glass tabletop down with a microfiber cloth, to get rid of stains and dirt. Use straight vinegar to clean up spills or remove stubborn stains. Then use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to clean the vinegar away. As a final step, you can use a piece of crumpled newspaper to give your table an added sparkle. This removes any fluff and makes the glass shine.
After you give the glass surface or mirror a good cleaning, follow up once a week with a maintenance regimen and use regular water for the rest of the week.
Avoid using paper towels for cleaning mirrors and mirror glass surfaces, as these can leave unsightly lint behind. Don’t use abrasives or cleaners containing ammonia or acid, since such products can destroy the silver backing and edges of your mirror.
While acrylic looks like glass, it is less breakable and about half the weight. When cleaning acrylic products, special care must be taken. Avoid commercial household cleaners because the chemicals in these products can dull and scratch the acrylic. The best way to care for your acrylic furniture, is to clean with lukewarm water and a bit of liquid soap, rinse and dry. Always use a soft cloth as not to scratch the acrylic surface.
