Glass is very fragile so you’ll need rubber bumpers to cushion your glass. Rubber bumpers are either stick-on, screw-on, or push-in which are available in various colors equipped to prevent your glass from sliding or falling off.
While cleaning, using the right cleaner is key to maintaining the look of your tabletop. While most cleaners have ammonia in them which helps to clean out dirt on your glass, cleaners with vinegar are also a good choice. Another effective home alternative is the use of water, alcohol, and vinegar to occasionally clean your glass. And all these are readily available at home.
Take note, however, to clean out food particles and debris from the tabletop with a dry cloth before using water and vinegar. You see, wet cloths leave streaks on the glass that can spoil the overall beauty of your glass. After all, it should be sparkling when you’re done cleaning. So consider using a lint-free or microfiber cloth for a streak-free sparkling tabletop – the ultimate desire.
