How to clean up broken glass

Top 5 tips for cleaning up broken glass

1. Do not panic. Keep cool, assess the problem and proceed with steps 2-5.

2. Safety First! Put shoes on your feet and move any kids or animals out of harms way.

3. Do not sweep up broken glass because you will get glass in the broom. Remove large pieces of glass with a pair of tongs and place them in a thick brown paper bag.

4. Carefully wipe up the small shards of glass and surrounding surfaces with a big wad of wet paper towels and repeat 3 times. Place the towels in the brown paper bag to throw away.

5. Dry the area well and repeat the wet wipe down if necessary.
