How to Remove Dust From a Glass Coffee Table

Your glass coffee table adds charm to your living room, but it also attracts a lot of dust. With the table top being glass, the dust is especially visible. Spraying it with window cleaner and wiping it clean with paper towels doesn't always do the trick to get rid of the dust. Sometimes it just spreads it around on the surface. Remove dust from your glass coffee table quickly using the right products and cleaning methods.

Wipe off as much dust as you can with a dry, lint-free cloth.

Fill a clean, empty spray bottle with 1 cup of water. Add 1 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1 tbsp of white vinegar. Put the lid on the spray bottle and shake the solution up well.

Spray the glass coffee table with a generous coating of the cleaning solution. Wad up some newspaper and wipe the glass in a circular motion. Switch to a clean wad of newspaper as one becomes wet or filled with dust.

Wipe over the glass table a final time with a clean, dry wad of newspaper to remove any streaks or lingering dust.


If your glass coffee table top has crevices where dust gets in between the glass and the frame, use canned air to blast out the dust. Hold the can 6 inches from the crevice and pull the trigger to blow out the dust. Clean the table as directed above after doing so.
