Glass cleaning the easy and natural ways.

Cleaning the glass surfaces and glassware are not given equal importance by us-right? While we take utmost care of the glass items in our kitchen, we don't give the same attention to the other glassed areas such as windows, mirrors and doors. We think just a wipe with a dry cloth is enough to clean them.

No, obviously not enough, Recently I happened to read an useful article regarding home glass maintenance and I am happy to share the gist of it here.

You can find different products for cleaning glass but some of them are too abrasive and will actually damage our glassware. Here are a few tips to help you keep the glass in your house cleaner using only natural products.

 Don't clean your windows when the sun is shining brightly. It will dry the panes too quickly, leaving streaks. Wait for a dull day and you'll get better results

 If ammonia doesn't get rid of a chemical build up in your glassware, smear the glass surface with Vaseline (petroleum jelly) and leave overnight, or longer. Then wipe off and wash clean.

Methylated spirits rubbed on the outside panes of your windows will make them shine in a way you've never seen before. It will also bring out the iridescence to produce a blaze of sparkle and color.

Many people have reported having great results cleaning their glass using toothpaste. I wouldn't like to recommend any particular brand, so try a few and expect good results.

 Efferdent tablets, which are used for cleaning dentures, are very effective in cleaning glassware. They contain a solid form of peroxide, which performs the cleaning part. Fill your glass with water and add two tablets. Let stand for an hour or so and rinse out.

Citric acid will clean glass and make it shine. 

Vinegar diluted with a little water can be very effective for cleaning glass. 

I hope you will find these glass cleaning tips useful and easy to try.
