Glass splashbacks are a beautiful and classic look for your kitchen that adds a touch of elegance. They are growing in popularity as a low-maintenance and long-lasting splashback that will keep your kitchen looking beautiful for years. However, they do require a different approach than traditional tile splashbacks, including special consideration when cleaning them.

But don’t worry! Glass splashbacks are easy to maintain as long as you know what to do and what not to do. Below, we’ve compiled a few things you’ll need to know about how to clean your glass splashback to keep it sparkling for years to come.

1. Use a gentle cloth.

Glass splashbacks can get scratched if you scrub them with a metal or plastic-based cleaning tool. Instead, opt for a lint-free cloth that will allow you to scrub without damaging the glass beneath. Microfiber cloths are a great material to use on your glass splashback.

2. Use non-abrasive cleaning products.

Glass cleaner is naturally a great option for cleaning splashbacks, but you can also use methylated spirits or even hot soapy water! The key is to not use any abrasive cleaners designed for stain removal or heavy soiling. They etch tiny grooves into your glass every time you use them. This means the glass gets dirtier more easily, dulls the surface, and can lead to the need for a replacement down the line. Be conscious of what you’re putting on your glass and avoid any problems!

3. Clean your splashback regularly.

The best way to keep your glass splashback clean is to clean it regularly. Wipe stains off as they happen and every 2 weeks or so, thoroughly clean your splashback.

4. Try white vinegar.

Having problems with streaking on your glass splashback? Try white vinegar! It’s a quick and easy solution and it’s an affordable alternative to store-bought cleaners as well.

5. Clean on cloudy days.

If you’re finding that no matter what you do you’re still getting streaks on your glass splashback, try cleaning on a cloudy day! Streaks are caused by the liquid drying faster than you have a chance to wipe it off. On sunny days, the heat can make this worse, but on cloudy days, you have more time to wipe off the cleaner and get a streak-free shine.

Glass splashbacks are a gorgeous addition to your home and they’re fairly easy to maintain! Just make sure that you’re using all the right techniques and your splashback will stay shiny and beautiful for as long as you live with it.
