A glass fence can keep kids out of your pool when they are not supervised and safe from danger – all without blocking the view of your yard and the landscape around your house.
Although homeowners appreciate the security of glass fencing and the fact that it doesn’t obstruct views, many are unsure about how to keep it clean.
A mixture of dish soap and water is usually recommended to clean glass fencing. A woman in Australia recently took things a step further and reported she got amazing results by using a rinse aid to get her glass fence sparkling clean.
What Is Rinse Aid?
A rinse aid is used in a dishwasher along with detergent. When a dishwasher goes through its final rinse cycle, rinse aid is dispensed. It reduces the surface tension of water so it runs off dishes instead of forming droplets.
When water droplets cling to dishes, they can leave behind spots and streaks. Using a rinse aid can prevent that problem. If you have hard water, rinse aid can also prevent mineral buildup on your dishes. Consider the same effect now with your glass fence.
How Can You Use Rinse Aid to Clean Your Glass Fence?
If you currently have a glass fence and you’ve struggled to keep it free of streaks, adding a rinse aid to your cleaning routine might be the solution. Mix water, mild dish soap, and rinse aid in a bucket and use the solution to remove dirt and grime from the glass fence. Once you have finished cleaning, use a squeegee to remove excess water, then wipe the fence dry with a microfiber cloth.
Is a Glass Fence Right for Your Home?
If you have a pool in your yard, you have to take measures to keep children out of harm’s way. Even if you don’t have kids of your own, other children can be drawn to the pool.
A swimming pool is considered an “attractive nuisance.” That means that it’s appealing to children, as well as dangerous. Young kids might not understand the risk of drowning, and they might be unable to read signs or might not heed posted warnings. As a homeowner with a pool, you have a responsibility to put up a barrier to keep children away.
A glass fence can be an excellent choice. Since it’s made with smooth glass panels and doesn’t have footholds, it’s virtually impossible for kids to climb. You also won’t have to worry about a glass fence blocking your views. If you’re inside your house or in another part of your yard, you’ll be able to see the area in and around the pool and know if someone has entered or is trying to enter without permission.
