Whether you have a glass block shower or glass block windows they will inevitably get dirty. To keep your glass block looking as good as new you will want to make sure that you spend they time needed for their upkeep. A gentle once a week cleaning will do the trick.
Things You'll Need
- Warm water
- Soft cloth
- Mild abrasive cleanser
When cleaning your glass block windows you will want to first inspect the grout. If it looks like it is time to clean the grout you will want to prepare for doing so by putting a little abrasive cleaner on a plate.
Moisten your toothbrush with warm water. You will want to dip the toothbrush in the abrasive cleaner to lightly coat it.
Gently scrub the grout with the toothbrush. Do this once a month and your grout will continue to remain clean.
Once the grout is clean you will want to clean your glass block with a solution of warm water, a mild soap, and a soft cloth. You will gently wash the windows in a circular motion.
Squeegee the water off the window in downward strokes.
