How Do I Remove Staining From Glass?

Keeping your glass surfaces clean makes the world of difference. All glass, whether it be your external windows or the glass in your bathroom needs to be cleaned regularly. The products, equipment and technique you use will affect the finish you achieve.

In today’s post, we will be sharing our top tips on this very topic. Here’s everything you need to know about how to remove staining from glass to tell you more.

Stains On External Window Glass

External windows collect dirt and pollution on them every day. On a basic level, we recommend a glass cleaning detergent as well as tools such as a squeegee which will give you a neat finish.

It can be tricky to clean your external windows if they are high up, which is why for more advanced cleaning jobs, a pure water fed system offers the latest in window cleaning technology. These start at just $745 for a residential system and contain everything you need to clean the external window glass on your home.

The main advantages with a pure water fed system, is that the water used does not contain any impurities or sediments like regular water does. This makes it much easier to clean glass, because no droplets or streaks are left behind. As well as external glass, water fed systems can also be used to clean cars or boats too, making it a very versatile piece of kit to own. 

Stains On Internal Glass

If you have any glass surfaces in your home, you’ll know how tricky it can be to keep them clean. The bathroom is probably one of the worst areas for this, especially as glass screens can become stained from the products you use in the shower.

That’s why we recommend a preventative measure in the form of EnduroShield. It works by creating an invisible barrier on your glass surfaces that will prevent soap scum from forming for up to 3 years. It works outdoors too, making it ideal to use on balconies, near pools or any glass that comes into contact with salt spray from the ocean.

Think of EnduroSheild as the equivalent of a non-stick pan. Once you’re done cooking, cleaning up is a breeze. That’s exactly the same ethos EnduroShield builds into their products, meaning no more endless scrubbing and buffing of your glass surfaces.

Stains On Glass: How Not To Remove It

When you see a stain on your shower screen, balcony or even on your windows it’s pretty frustrating. Whether it’s a handprint or a present from the local wildlife, if you use the wrong tools or detergents you can quickly make the situation worse. 

As tempting as it may be, avoid using dishwashing liquid on your windows. Even a small drop can create a foamy mess, which will require an excessive amount of water to rinse off. Whatsmore, dishwashing detergent is designed to lift greasy stains from dinner plates, not debris from window glass. It’s simply not intended for use on glass, and with good reason.

Likewise, avoid any unsuitable tools. Otherwise, you could scratch your windows and cause irreparable damage to them. If the glass is quite fragile, the excess pressure from using the wrong tool could even shatter it. Check out our glass cleaning tools and detergents instead and achieve a professional clean without the hassle.
