- Polish your glass product frequently and carefully with a soft, lint free cloth or clean it by hand with lukewarm water to maintain its original, lustrous finish.
- Dry with a soft, lint free cloth to maximize brilliance. When handling your glass product, it is advisable to wear cotton or latex gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints.
- Avoid direct contact with harsh, abrasive materials, acid, solvents and unsuitable cleaners, as this could harm the glass and reduce the product life, as well as cause discoloration and loss of brilliance.
- Avoid direct contact with grease, water, wine and vinegar, spirits, descalers, perfumes, deodorants or other scented substances, sprays, soap and/or make up in order to prevent stains.

At the end of its working life, the glass product must not be disposed of as urban waste.
