There’s a lot to love with recycled glass countertops: they’re earth-friendly, durable, and beautiful. Of course, proper upkeep is required to keep these surfaces looking their best. Luckily it’s easy. Read our pointers to find out exactly what to do.
How to Clean
The best way to clean a recycled glass surface is simply to wipe with a damp cloth or sponge. You can clean with warm water mixed with a small amount of mild soap as often as necessary to maintain a clean surface.
Things Not to Use
Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials. This includes paint removers, Comet, polish remover, toilet or oven cleaners. These products can damage the countertop. It is also recommended that you clean recycled glass with low-acidity cleaners and use a cutting board when dealing with food that has citric acid, e.g. lemons.
