How do you use glass coasters?
Coasters protect the surface of a table or any other surface where the user might place a drink. Coasters placed on top of a beverage can also be used to show that a drink is not finished or to prevent contamination (usually from insects). Coasters can also stop hot drinks from burning the table surface.
How do you make a cup coaster?
Do you need coasters on glass?
When you put cups on the table, use a coaster to keep stains and rings from forming and to prevent scratches that might occur because of the base of the cup. Don’t put any hot plates, bowls, or cups on a glass surface without some kind of mat under them as heat can weaken the glass.
Why do my coasters stick to cups?

What kind of coasters work best?
What kind of coasters absorb water? Coasters made of porous stones like sandstone and ceramic are the most water-absorbent options. Neoprene is also an excellent absorbent material that can dry quickly.
