Water Spots on Glass Table Tops

Water, your most reliable cleaning partner for cleaning almost any household item, ironically, can leave the most stubborn stains on your glass table top. Yes, it can pose a difficult problem because you can’t just wipe them away. That’s because water spots are usually the result of hard water that has been allowed to dry for a period of time on the glass. Like what happens to glass shower doors, left without being wiped dry. Same technique to clean your glass shower doors can be applicable for removing these water spots on your glass table top. And with only materials as simple these:  a spray bottle, white vinegar, and a clean soft cloth.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Fill your spray bottle with undiluted white vinegar. Spray the vinegar onto the affected area, allowing it to sit on the water spots for 3 to 5 minutes.

2. With a soft, clean cloth, wipe the area to remove the stain. If necessary, repeat the steps until the spots are gone. Rinse by wiping the area with a clean damp cloth. Then wipe the area again, with another dry clean lint-free cloth to eliminate excess moisture.

Cloudy Glass Remedy

Glass that has been clouded by mineral buildup (often called “sick”, or “cloudy” glass because calcium deposits caused it to have a light “foggy” type appearance) can be cleaned by spreading a layer of petroleum jelly on the tabletop. Letting this sit for a couple of hours on the glass before wiping off, reaps better results. Follow up with a good wash, using soapy water. Denture cleaner can also be your alternative for the soapy water.

Simple and easy cleaning techniques, true. But sometimes, just one or two steps done without heeding the most basic reminders, can bring more damage to your dining table with glass top. Or just maybe, a bit of carelessness and haste results altogether can ruin your most valuable glass top.
