Cleaning glass, mirrors, and polishing brass

This blog post will deal with best practice for cleaning glass and mirrors, and polishing brass and brightwork.


Important: Always use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when undertaking any cleaning task and follow the manufacturer’s product use and where relevant dilution guidance.

Cleaning glass and mirrors

Using an appropriate glass cleaner, spray the solution onto a cloth or paper wiper, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Wipe the glass surface or mirror with the cloth or paper wiper until clean, taking care to ensure all areas have been covered.

If necessary, buff the surface with a clean, dry cloth or new paper wiper.

Polishing brass and brightwork

Choose an appropriate product for the surface to be polished. Check the manufacturer’s instructions before using and if in doubt always polish a small inconspicuous area as a trial.

Apply the product onto a clean cloth.

Wipe the surface, taking care not to get the product on any of the adjoining surfaces.

Buff to create a shine.
