How to clean frosted glass – Everyone must have items made of glass. Starting from household furniture such as mirrors, glass nako, glass doors and windows.

There are also glass items that serve as accessories to beautify the house. Examples such as aquaruim, decorative lights, glass shelves / display cases, etc. Until goods that function to drive as well as prestige (prestige). This item has a part made of glass. Do you know what item it is? Yup! You are right! The answer is a private car.

When all the above items are still in new condition, the glass must still look ‘cling’ (clear). However, the condition of the glass will gradually change after a long time the glass is used. Usually the clear glass surface will slowly turn dull and opaque.

The above of course will reduce the beauty of goods made of glass. In addition to disturbing the aesthetic value, its function can also be disrupted due to the opaque glass. For example if this happens to the mirror. If the surface of the mirror is blurry and dull, of course the image will look less clear.

One reason is because the glass is rarely cleaned. Even if it is cleaned, cleaning it is not optimal and uneven. As a result there are still remnants of dust that are still attached to the surface of the glass. Now that’s what causes the glass surface to still look blurry and dull (even though it’s been cleaned).

Oh yes, it could also be the cause of the glass so it looks blurry because the wiping technique is not right. This usually happens if you wipe the glass with a nylon cloth. This type of fabric is not able to absorb water well.

Maybe some of you are asking: “How come?”

So when you wipe the glass, the water that is used to clean the dirt stains doesn’t ‘lift’ completely. As a result, it makes the glass look blurry. The reason is because there are still dirt particles attached to the remaining water on the surface of the glass.

So what kind of fabric should you use?

The answer; Use a cloth made of 100% cotton. Cotton is known to have good absorbency. This is because the main ingredient of cotton fabric is cotton (kapok). As we all know, kapok has excellent absorbing characteristics.

Maybe some of you are asking: “If you don’t have a cotton cloth, is there an alternative way to clean the frosted glass?”
