Full Answer

  1. Make the soap mixture

    Mix dish soap and water together in a bowl. Pour the solution into a spray bottle. Avoid using vinegar in the solution.

  2. Clean the glass

    Spray the mixture onto the glass. Wait for 15 minutes, and then wipe the glass down with a sponge. Remove all dirt, grime and grease.

  3. Buff the glass

    Before the soapy mixture dries, buff the glass with a soft cloth until the surface shines. Avoid using scouring pads or anything abrasive on the glass as this can scratch the surface.

  4. Polish the glass

    Purchase a glass-polishing kit to give the glass extra shine and to treat scratches. Read the instructions included in the kit before using it. Apply the solution to the glass, and buff until the scratches are less visible.

  5. Clean the glass again

    After using the polishing kit, apply the soap mixture again. Rub it away with the sponge, and buff the glass with the soft cloth.
