While you’re cleansing up damaged glass, resist the temptation to seize your vacuum. Bits of damaged glass can simply harm your vacuum. For example, in case your vacuum has a bag, the glass may puncture the bag and create a large mess. And even when your vacuum is bagless, bits of glass may scratch up the interior workings and even get lodged within the hose!
As an alternative, begin by sweeping up the large items of glass. Then use a moist paper towel or a bit of bread to select up any tiny items of glass which will nonetheless be lurking within the space. (I’ve used the bread trick a number of occasions, and it really works like a attraction!)
