How to clean glass splashbacks
June 18, 2019
The elegant look and infinite creative possibilities of a glass splashback have made it popular with homeowners and interior designers alike. These splashbacks are guaranteed to add a ‘wow-factor’ to any kitchen. Improving the aesthetic and brightening your kitchen are just some of the benefits of glass splashbacks. But that beauty can be diminished slightly when it’s covered in grease.
After all, you’ve added this stunning feature to your home. The splashback should sparkle and shine impressing all that lay their eyes on it. No need to worry, another major benefit of a glass splashback is that they are easy to clean. Here are a quick how-to guide and a few top tips for keeping your splashback in tip-top shape.
How to clean glass splash backs
Home improvement retailers may offer heavy duty degreaser sprays, but there are easier home-made alternatives to clean the grease from your splashback. White vinegar is known to clean rust, glasses and even get rid of ballpoint pen marks on shirts. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and apply to the splashback. Alternatively, a mixture of warm water and dishwashing detergent would help you clean the affected area.
No matter which method you opt for, be sure to use a lint-free cloth to thoroughly wipe the grease. Using a scourer or other abrasive cleaning tools could scratch or damage your splashback.
Top tips to maintain your glass splashback
- Don’t let the grease build up over time. Aim to clean the splashback every 1 or 2 weeks.
- Clean stains as soon as they appear. It’s considerably more difficult to clean a stain once it’s dry.
- Clean your splashback on a cool day for best results. A cleaning solution’s quick evaporation may cause streaks on a hot day.
