Keeping Glass Clean in our Gainesville, Florida Apartments
When most people think of cleaning glass, their first instinct is to get some Windex and paper towels, but in many cases this is a big mistake. Many glass objects can be seriously damaged by the chemicals in traditional glass cleaning products, and abrasive paper towels can cause scratches without careful use.
The ammonia in many window cleaners can damage the antiglare coatings on prescription glasses and sunglasses. While some people prefer sprays and wipes that are specially designed to clean glasses, there are less expensive options. Instead of these sprays, try washing the lenses with a dot of dish soap rubbed gently over the lenses with a soft cloth, and then rinse. This should clear your glasses right up without causing any damage to the coatings.
Commercial glass cleaners are also not always safe for cleaning off big screen TVs, computer monitors, and other sensitive electronics, since the liquid can short out delicate circuitry. Specially-made screen wipes are the best bet in these situations. However, for dry dirt and dust, antistatic cloths can often clean electronic devices without requiring any liquids or special chemicals.
Keeping these tips in mind can help you keep your glass belongings clean, clear, and undamaged for years to come. For more cleaning tips, take a look at the other articles on the Bellamay Grand website. And to schedule a tour of our Gainesville, Florida apartments, contact us today.
