What you should do
The glass is tempered, meaning that it has been subjected to a process that makes it 5 times more resistant than traditional glass. In the event of breakage, this glass breaks into tiny pieces that do not cut.
The glass is extremely stain and water-scale resistant (easily removable with Viakal), especially when it has a glossy finish.
To remove dirt, use everyday glass cleaning products or detergents.

what you should NOT do
Sliding metal materials over the acid-treated surface leaves marks that are partly due to metal being left in the glass micro-cavities, and to the breakage of the micro-ridges created by the acid treatment. This phenomenon is rare on smooth glass; bear in mind that glass is cut by materials that are stronger than it is (diamonds and hard stones, ceramics, tiles, plates, crystal).
