Slice of Bread To Clean Up Broken Glass

Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 124 Posts

Here's a tip I used today. I broke a glass ornament today and the glass was very thin and sharp. Little shards went everywhere and I was worried as I have a cat.


A tip I remembered was to 'mop' up the little pieces of glass with a slice of bread. I shone a torch over the area afterwards and I think I have every last piece.

I wore my gardening gloves in case I got a splinter in my finger but I must say, it worked very well.

So for broken glass - grab a slice of bread!

Fantastic idea! Thanks for sharing.
I will try that next time, and with me there are plenty of opportunities. LOL

All I can think of is some poor animal is going to go eat that bread and get pieces of glass in them. Usually a wet paper towel works great!

No animal would be harmed as this would not go into recycled food waste. I wrap glass fragments in newspaper and put in the bin. That way I can't harm my rubbish collector. The bread would eventually mold and disappear leaving just the glass.


I hope this clears up your worries, Jenetty :)
