It may come as a surprise to discover that the majority of homeowners do not know to clean their mirror for a streak free finish. In fact, this premise is even more decisive when it comes to high-end, luxury designs that have been made-to-order as the last thing you’ll want to do is damage the frame with harsh store-bought cleaners. Here is the William Wood Mirrors guide to cleaning your mirror the right way…
What you will need:
- A microfibre cloth
- Rubbing alcohol
- Vinegar or lemon juice
- Firstly, it is important to assess the grime on your mirror and select the appropriate cleaning materials that are best suited for the job. For instance, it is often thought that diluted vinegar is an effective cleaning product as opposed to store-bought cleaners because there are no chemicals. In the same way, warm water and a microfibre cloth will help you buff out streaks in the mirror.
- Next you will want to begin the cleaning process by taking your chosen cleaning product, whether it be newspaper or a microfibre cloth, and use small circular motions in the top, left hand corner. Add more cleaning products as required and work your way across the mirror, continuing the circular motions as this will help prevent streaks and leave the mirror with a gleaming reflection.
- Finally, dust the frame using a dry microfiber cloth. It is important to avoid using vinegar or polishes at this point as the ingredients may be too harsh for the frame and could lead to damage and staining. Instead, focus your intentions on removing dust and buffing the mirror for a grime and streak-free finish.
