A glass dining table is fantastic for adding a feeling of space into a room. Keeping the glass top looking great is a breeze with the following tips and tricks. Here's how to clean a glass dining table
First things first, it is a lot easier to clean a glass dining table when there is nothing else on it. Move any items so that you can see any areas that might require a bit of extra elbow-grease.
If your table also has any wood in the design, it’s a good idea to protect it from moisture, or make sure you dry it (if it does get wet) to avoid rotting or mould in the wood.
If you watch any professional window cleaner, you’ll see that this stage of cleaning glass is often a really simple soapy water mix. A bit of washing up liquid and water on a sponge or cloth will lift even stubborn spills on glass. You can also try:
Wipe all over the table with the damp cloth or sponge or if you’re using a spray, simply spray it over the glass and let it soak for a few minutes.
Many people focus on the product used to actually clean the glass dining table, but the key to getting a streak-free finish is in the BUFFING. You will need a DRY soft cloth, kitchen paper or newspaper. Once you’ve cleaned the glass (as per stage 3), take a soft dry cloth, or a wad of kitchen towel or newspaper and rub down the table top. Go over it once then wait a minute or two and buff out any streaks as they’re drying. Make sure the cloth you’re using is dry, if damp it can add more streaks.
And that’s it! Your glass dining table will be sparkling! If we've inspired you to buy a glass dining table, why not browse our range?
