How To Clean Your Glass Splashback

For anyone who owns, or intends to own, a glass splashback one of the first things you need to learn about is how the glass can be cleaned. Without maintenance your glass can lose its appeal and its style fast and it will remove its class and style in no time. By contrast, the cleaning process is well worth your time!


All it requires is a bit of time and some basic cleaning materials that you can get access to with ease. If you have taken the time to already invest in something like a splashback it makes sense to keep it in the best condition possible, right?



Should you have ever dealt with window or surface cleaning that is made from glass, you will already have most of what you need. However, you will have to be prepared to make the cleaning process semi-regular as although you will never see stains on a splashback, you will see unintended marks from fingerprints to greasy build-up.


If you are looking to get your glass splashback to last for the many years to come, this is the perfect place to start with. Whilst it does not take much of an effort or too long to clean up, the process itself is well worth considering. Here are some of the considerations that you need to take into place;


  • When you first start you cleaning off, simply spray your cleaner on the surface paying special attention to greasy and excessive buildup. Let the solution sizzle for 2 minutes, letting it soak in and break up the mess.
  • Make sure you use the right cleaning systems, too. Glass cleaner will work out just fine but make sure you use at least warm water and dishwater detergent – never use anything harsher than this as it can cause serious damage to the glass.
  • Next, wipe the surface gently from one side to the next using a soft cloth or a paper towel – make sure that all marks are removed during this cleaning process. Make sure that you use something like a lint-free cloth as anything harsher will cause abrasions to appear. Take your time and be gentle and you reduce the chances of doing any kind of lasting damage to the glass.


For the best quality of results, you just need to dry the surface off fully before you try using any kind of buffing on the system. Use the softest cloth that you possibly can, with circular and repeated motions to lift it all off until you are totally happy with the cleanliness of the results.


Even though some splashback are resistant to stains, not every system will be fully protected – therefore, you should get into the habit of cleaning it regularly just now. It’s easier to clean something when the dirt is fresh instead of building up and beginning to grow over the glass itself – deal with things now, and save worrying about them later!
