How to Clean Fused Glass

It may sound simple cleaning your warm glass but it's really.........very simple. It is always important to clean your fused glass before firing. Making sure that your art work is clean from cutting oil and fingerprints will help keep the impurities from being fired into the glass. It's no fun to open up your kiln only to find a permanent stain on your work. Cleaning your glass doesn't have to be a hassle either. Just wash it in warm water with a little detergent and dry it thoroughly with a clean towel.

Avoid having to call a plumber? After you've fired your glasswork don't wash your Thinfire™ paper off in the sink. Doing this could clog your drain. Instead keep a plastic bucket filled with water near your kiln and wash it off there. We actually use a trash can to wash off our warm glass. After the particles have settled in the water carefully pour out the water and put what's left in a trash bag.
