Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily. Remember when glass breaks, small pieces can fly a distance. So if you have a larger area on the floor to cover, take a moist paper towel and fasten to a broom, mop or a duster pad and gently wipe up.

Pick up broken glass with bread. Hundreds of tiny shards often are spread across the floor when glass breaks. Sweeping never removes them all. Next time glass breaks in your home, sweep away the larger pieces, then press a few slices of bread onto the broken-glass area.
Pick up tiny slivers of broken glass—the ones you don’t notice until you’ve stepped on them—by gently pressing a slice of bread or a piece of Play-Doh on the area. Be sure to wrap the glass up carefully before throwing it away—you don’t want an animal to eat it or a child to play with it. 432
