For over four thousand years, the lustrous, hard, and inert characteristics of glass, coupled with its transparency, have made it one of the world’s most desirable and most frequently used materials. Glass is used and touched by humans in many of our everyday activities. 

Glass is included in a multitude of products all around us, such as in windows, doors, skylights, partitions, furniture, shelving, drinkware, cookware, eyeglasses, automotive windows and sunroofs, and food & beverage containers… the list goes on from here. 

Glass cleans easily with nonabrasive cleaners including many anti-bacterial cleaners and that is another reason why in the time span of millenniums, glass has helped us through many unfortunate events such as plagues, epidemics, and pandemics.

The ability to easily clean and sanitize glass remains true with the COVID-19 outbreak that originated in China in late 2019 and quickly spread worldwide.

This document offers suggested methods for cleaning and sanitizing glass surfaces and is focused on the glass fabricator/processor but is applicable for glass in general. All or portions of these methods can be adopted for use to clean glass used in most glazing applications.
