What's the best way to pick up little pieces of broken glass from a tile floor?


I dropped a jam jar in my kitchen a few weeks ago. I picked up the large pieces with my hands and threw them away. Then I went over the floor with a wet paper towel to pick up the smaller pieces of glass. Finally, I vacuumed the floor to try to pick up any pieces I might have missed. However, now two weeks later, I am still finding small pieces of glass both in the kitchen and in surrounding areas. Any suggestions on how to really clean the area and make sure I've picked up all the glass from the floor?

    Great idea! I wonder if I can fit those lint rollers over my paint roller frame and use the long handle on the paint roller to roll this over my floor. I might see what I can put together. Thanks so much for your answer!

    Thanks! I think your wet newspaper would probably do a better job of picking up the little pieces of glass than the paper towel I used. I will try the paper towel after using the packing tape. I hope that will get all the glass up. Thanks again!
