Glassy And Classy: Upkeep Tips For Your Patio Set
Nothing says summer more than a gorgeous patio set, complete with a glass tabletop that sparkles and shines! Not only are these patio sets incredibly stylish, but a breeze to care for as well. Here are a few great tips to help you keep your patio glass set looking as great as the day you purchased it!
Use the Right Cleaners
When cleaning your glass patio set, you'll want to make sure to stick with a dedicated glass cleaner solution rather than an all-purpose cleaner that could potentially cause damage. If you'd like to avoid using the more heavy-duty glass cleaners, consider something more natural! Simply add vinegar and water to a spray can and spritz over your class surface. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before wiping it off with a clean rag. Vinegar will help remove any stubborn spots and is an excellent way to deal with hard water buildup. With regular cleaning, your patio set will sparkle as though they are brand new!
Protect and Prevent Damage
While using the right type of cleaning solution is important to the overall appearance and quality of your patio furniture, make sure that this is a regular habit. At least once a week, perform a quick wipe-down of your patio set to avoid any buildup and inhibit rust. Regularly inspect the glass and fixtures to make sure you don't see any cracks of any kind as well. If you know that inclement weather is on the way, cover your patio set with a tarp or move it out of the way. After all, it only takes a few minutes of a hail storm to turn your beautiful glass table into a pile of sharp shards! So stay on the safe side and be proactive about ensuring your furniture is protected as much as possible.
Minimize the Need to Clean
Taking preventative measures can greatly improve how often your tabletops will need cleaning. If you plan on using your patio set for eating or drinking, consider putting down a tablecloth to protect the surface. Offered in countless patterns and fabrics including waterproof vinyl and stain-resistant materials, tablecloths are an excellent way to prevent damage from happening in the first place as well as providing a lovely aesthetic to your decor! If you'd rather show off that beautiful class, go for it! Just be sure that whenever you have glasses on your table that you get into the good habit of using coasters to keep that surface sparkling.
