Cleaning: Make use of a soft cloth with a mild detergent along with lukewarm water to clean the glass inserts. Do not use any harsh chemicals for cleaning. If the glass insert is textured, then make sure you clean finely between the designs.
Add on blinds: If you add blinds to your door, then you will never need dusting. It also lowers exposure to allergens. In case, you have a clear glass, the blinds enhance your privacy.
Time to time inspection: Make sure you check the glass insert from time to time to look out for the adhesive and any cracks or damages done to the glass. The periodic inspection prevents long-term and expensive damage.
