Custom mirrors can be striking pieces of décor. Mirrors can completely change a space. They can open up a room, make it appear larger and otherwise add more elegance to your home. Unfortunately, mirrors can also gather a lot of dirt and grime. From fingerprints to hairspray, there a lot of particles that can collect on glass. If you’re trying to figure out how to maintain your mirrors, these tips might help.
Before you get out the water, wipe down the mirrors with a dry cloth. This will get rid of any dust or dirt on the surface.
Many people swear by old newspapers to clean windows. You can dip the newspaper into some water and rub it in circles over your mirror. If you want to use a stronger solution, you can add vinegar to the mix. Some people even use a recipe of borax, rubbing alcohol and ammonia to create a polish.
Avoid Abrasive Cleaners
Commercial cleaners are often too strong for mirrors and can damage the glass. Also, you want to keep the cleaner away from the edges to avoid damaging the backing.
Maintaining your mirror doesn’t have to be difficult. You can enjoy your mirrors without having to worry about them getting foggy or dirty. For more information on custom mirrors for your home, call City Glass of Bloomington, Inc.
