The dining tables in our homes deal with a lot during the day. The tables get used as dumping grounds for our stuff, homeschooling classrooms, and there are even times that we sit at them to eat. With some much happening on our tabletops, it is not surprising that they can get a little bit messy. If you have a black glass dining table, you are in luck.
What is so great about black glass?
Glass top dining tables are some of the best dining tables that you can buy for a variety of reasons. The glass itself is very durable and very hard to break. If you have kids and are worried about your glass breaking, rest assured that this is hard to do. Because of the strength of the material, it is hard to scratch and the smooth surface makes it hard for germs to hide.
How to clean black glass
There are many different ways to clean a black glass table that will ensure that you have a safe place to eat your food.
● A soapy basin of water is the best thing to wash the glass to remove any dirt. This can then be squeegeed to remove the excess water. A word of warning, if you do use a squeegee, move the water to one place and have the basin ready to catch the water. Otherwise, it will go on the floor and soak the carpet.
● A microfiber cloth and a light spray with glass cleaner is a great way to ensure a streak-free shine. This is also a great way to make the table clean between mealtimes.
● If you would like to try an old-fashioned way to clean it, using white vinegar and old newspaper is considered one of the best ways to clean and protect your glass table. If you still get a free newspaper in your area, this can be a great way to use it before it goes into the recycling bin.
● Homemade spray can be a great alternative. Simply mix one cup of water with one cup of rubbing alcohol and a tablespoon of white vinegar in a spray bottle. This simple mixture will give you a clean table that is cheap to make.
How long does a glass table last?
Unlike a lot of other dining tables, a glass table can last for years, but it is important to be careful. Although it is hard to break a glass table, it is not impossible. For this reason, it helps to be gentle when you are working with it. This mindset of being careful can ensure that the table lasts a lot longer than a wooden table. If you are putting something on the table, using a cloth or placemat will ensure that there are no marks or scratches. Never but a hot item on a glass table such as a hot pot as this can cause the glass to shatter. Always use a placemat to serve hot plates to ensure there is no damage.
