Dropping glass and breaking it can be devestating. It requires a thorough clean up job otherwise you might end up walking on top of broken glass. 


Most people will run to their vacuum in order to clean up glass. Is this fine? The answer is no, it is not fine especially if the pieces are rather large. It is recommended to take a broom and sweep up the large pieces as much as possible. Pick up those pieces with your hands and get rid of them. If you try to run the vacuum over those pieces, it will break down [1].


A wonderful tip is to use a small slice of bread for the smaller pieces. You take the bread and press it against the ground. It will suck up all of the glass pieces on the ground immediately [2].
