How to Clean a Glass Splashback

Glass splashbacks have become popular in modern kitchens and are available in a variety of colours and graphics.

While they are generally easy to clean, splashbacks will get grimy with built up grease and cooking fats over time.

Pro tip: Cloudy days = Cleaning time! Cleaning solutions are more likely to streak when it's warm and sunny, so clean when it's cloudy! The heat can cause the liquid to dry faster creating unpleasant streaks. Remember ALWAYS test in a small (hidden if possible) area first.

DO NOT use if a protective coating has been applied. Check with manufacturer if unsure.

Step 1: Dampen a non-scratch pad/sponge (we recommend a microfibre cloth or soft pad or sponge).

Step 2: Spray Bar Keepers Friend MORE Spray & Foam directly onto the surface, or onto the pad or sponge.

Step 3: Working in a small area at a time, rather than the whole area at once, start cleaning!

Step 4:  Rinse well or wipe down with a wet cloth to ensure the solution is thoroughly removed.

Step 5: Wipe down and shine with a dry, soft, clean cloth.
