You were putting away the dishes, and a glass fell and broke. It is always so hard to get all the little shards picked up!
First sweep the area well and dump the pieces into a garbage bag that has been doubled. I usually use the plastic bags that you get from shopping.
Once you have all the large pieces taken care of, time to get the little shards. For these grab a piece of white bread. Use the bread in a sweeping motion across the floor.
The softness of the bread will collect the little shards of glass. If you have a few pieces that are being stubborn, gently press the bread over the pieces until they are adhered to the bread.
Toss into the bag with the rest of the glass, tie securely and dispose of appropriately.
