How to Clean a Glass Splashback

We are excited to share with you this easy and effective guide on how to clean your glass splashback, ensuring it remains sparkling and maintains its pristine condition.

Materials Required

Before we dive into the cleaning process, let’s ensure you have all the necessary materials on hand:

  1. Microfibre Cloth: We highly recommend using a microfibre cloth as it is gentle on the glass surface, even with aggressive rubbing on stubborn marks and splashes from cooking.
  2. Warm Water: Warm water will help to dissolve and loosen any grime or stains on the glass.
  3. Dishwashing Liquid: A very small amount of dishwashing liquid is all you need to clean your glass splashback effectively.
  4. Spray Bottle (optional): If you prefer, mix the dishwashing liquid and warm water in a spray bottle for easy application.

Step-by-Step Cleaning Guide

Step 1: Dust Off the Surface

Before applying any liquid solutions, use a dry microfibre cloth to dust off any loose dirt or debris from the surface of the glass splashback. This ensures that you won’t accidentally scratch the glass when you start cleaning.

Step 2: Prepare the Cleaning Solution

In a bowl or spray bottle, mix a small amount of dishwashing liquid with warm water. Ensure that the solution is well-mixed.

Step 3: Apply the Cleaning Solution

If you use a bowl, dip your microfibre cloth into the solution, ensuring it is damp but not soaking wet. If you use a spray bottle, spray the solution directly onto the glass splashback.

Step 4: Wipe Down the Surface

Using the damp microfibre cloth, wipe down the surface of the glass splashback in a circular motion. Pay extra attention to any stubborn marks or splashes, applying more pressure if necessary.

Step 5: Rinse and Dry

Once you have wiped down the entire surface, rinse the microfibre cloth with clean water and wipe down the splashback to remove any soap residue. Finally, use a dry microfibre cloth to dry the surface and buff out any streaks, ensuring a sparkling finish.

Stubborn Streaks

If you have cleaned food spills and spatters off the splashback but have persistent streaks, you can use a little glass cleaning product (like you would use on your windows) on a clean, dry microfibre cloth and wipe the streaky area until it disappears.


Cleaning your glass splashback is a quick and easy task that can be done regularly to maintain its appearance and longevity. This cleaning method is relevant for all of our splashback types, from our classic coloured glass splashbacks to our matt glass and smokey mirror.

By following these simple steps and using the recommended materials, you can ensure that your splashback remains in top condition.
