This Video Explains How You’re Picking Up Glass Wrong

Picking up broken glass is dangerous. Doing it wrong can be even worse. If you’re picking up the pieces by reaching for a broom, or grabbing shards with your bare hands, check this video out to learn the right way.

As the video above explains, while most of us might reach for a broom when cleaning up glass, this can actually make the problem worse. Tiny pieces of glass can get lodged in the broom bristles and shake loose later. Instead, use a pair of thick gloves to pick up large pieces, and use a vacuum on smaller pieces. Finally, don’t forget to clean a large area surrounding where the glass broke. Glass pieces can fly far from the impact spot, and many pieces of broken glass aren’t easy to see at first.
