The living room, a space for relaxation and gathering, deserves a clean and inviting atmosphere. But let's face it: glass tables are no less than a magnet for fingerprints, mysterious sticky patches, and unsightly water rings. Fear not, fellow glass table owners! This guide, with its straightforward steps, will empower you to transform your once-grimy surface into a shiny masterpiece.

Step 1: Gather Necessary Tools

Identify which tools will be most beneficial to help streamline your cleaning process. Here are some recommendations that could come in handy:

  • Microfiber cloths or dish towels
  • Small brush or toothpick for removing stuck-on food particles
  • Dish soap or hand sanitizer
  • Trash bags or plastic wrap
  • Optional supplies like paper towels, sponges, and small brushes may also prove useful.

Step 2: Clearing the Decks



  • First things first, you'll need to get rid of all the junk lying around—that's where we start clearing the decks on your sparkling clean glass table.
  • Start by removing the bigger items first, like dishes, magazines, books, and other stuff.
  • Next, pick up a microfiber cloth. Hold it at arm's length and move it lightly across the edge of your tabletop, giving it a quick swirl to loosen any loose dirt or debris.
  • With this, your glass table should start looking better, but we won't stop here.

Step 3: Scrubbing Gently with Baking Soda and Dish Soap

Now that our table is looking pretty fresh, let's move on to scrubbing as you mean.


  • Mild dish soap
  • A soft sponge or microfiber cloth 
  • Baking soda
  • Warm water


  • Mix some mild baking soda with tiny bites of plain old dish soap. 
  • Create a paste on your cloth by mixing it a few times till it feels smooth and slightly runny. 
  • Pat down your tabletop carefully, pushing the mixture into crevices and hidden places where dirt might hide. 
  • Let the paste sit on the table for a few minutes so that it attracts all the dirt and grime.

Pro Tip: Going in wide arcs helps us touch more ground faster.

Step 4: Rinsing Off Quickly with Cool Water


  • A soft sponge or microfiber cloth 
  • Cold water


  • After letting the paste sit for a moment, give your cloth another wipe to help lift any dirt stuck between layers of soap and baking soda. 
  • Then rinse off quickly with cool water—a splash should do nicely. Your glass looks almost brand new.

Step 5: Final Touch With A Soft Brush And Dry The Glass Table Top.


  • Soft toothbrush
  • Microfiber Cloth


  • If the last scrub didn't quite get rid of all that pesky stuff, don't fear! A soft-bristled brush comes to the rescue. 
  • Lightly press your brush against the spotted areas, scraping up whatever material still hasn't been picked up. 
  • Just keep in mind not to dent your beautiful wood frame – stay within safe boundaries, alright?
  • If there is moisture on the surface then you will end up with streaks. To ensure your table is streak-free, dry the surface using a microfiber cloth. 

Step 6: Vacuuming the Area


  • Vacuum Cleaner


  • Time for the final cleaning chore: using our trusty vacuum cleaner with HEPA filters.
  • Turn your vacuum on low for a couple of passes to make sure that all the dust and debris are settled and collected.
  • Cleaning the area around the glass table ensures that your table stays cleaner for longer.

Pro Tip: Replace the filter regularly to make sure that your vacuum works efficiently.

Remember to keep the place tidy during this whole operation, ensuring no unnecessary wrinkles show up on the tablecloths.
