Proper Upkeep and Care Techniques for Your Austin Stained Glass
Stained Glass Austin always recommends creating your own cleaning solution composed of warm water and neutral-pH soap for stained glass cleaning.

These window cleaners should never be used to clean your stained glass. In addition to regular cleanings, you should always examine your stained glass for symptoms of apparent deterioration. Symptoms may include concave/convex shaped glass, missing or damaged glass pieces, disintegrating lead came, white dust produced by the lead came, and much more. If you’re having trouble identifying these signs, we’re happy to help.
