Glass Countertop and Backsplash Care & Maintenance

Glass countertops provide an easy way to infuse a modern, unique look into your home. While durable and easy to clean, care should be taken even with thick glass countertops; a glancing blow to the edge can cause chipping.

Care - Do's and Don'ts


  • Glass is a simple, stain-proof, wipe-down surface. We recommend cleaning by spraying Windex on a paper towel and then wiping the countertop.
  • Towel-dry after each use to avoid water spots.


  • Do not use abrasive cleaners, Fantastic, or 409; they will create a haze on the glass.
  • Avoid chopping or preparing food directly on the glass to prevent or minimize scratches. Also, take care not to place unglazed pottery on your glass surface.
  • Hot liquids will not damage the surface, however the use of a trivet is recommended for very hot pots and pans from the stove or oven.
  • For back painted glass, take care not to scratch the bottom paint coat.


  • Light scratches will occur as time goes by; they do not detract from the overall look or effect of the glass.
  • To remove dried food, soak with water for a minute to loosen or dissolve, then wipe up with a sponge.
  • Glass can be spot polished by machine to remove slight scratches. Spot polishing can cause minor changes in the curvature of the glass, and can cause slight changes to the reflection.
