3 Tips for Cleaning Bathroom Mirrors

Want to know how to get your mirror gleaming? Keeping mirrors sparklingly clean seems like a hassle, but it’s not that difficult to keep those surfaces shining. Here are 3 tips to consider in cleaning bathroom mirrors.

Considering Solutions
Use VINEGAR! First, thoroughly clean the mirror with your favorite product or homemade solution, and then wipe it dry. For an anti-fog treatment, dip a cloth in a mixture of one quart hot water and 2 tbsp. vinegar, and use it to wipe down the mirror. Then, let it air dry (versus drying it with a cloth). It should last a couple of weeks before you’ll need to do it again. Source: ApartmentTherapy

Using Shaving Creams
Shaving with a foggy mirror can lead to cuts, nicks, and death…Don’t die on your bathroom floor, naked and without dignity. Spread a thin layer of shaving cream on your mirror before showering. Afterwards, wipe it off with a paper towel. Your newly clean mirror will stay fog free for a few weeks…more if you hardly bathe. Source: HowToCleanThings

Avoiding the Damage

  • Avoid using commercial cleaners with acid, alkali, or ammonia—they are too abrasive.
  • Keep liquid away from the edges of your mirror. This can cause “black edge,” which damages the backing. If you do accidentally get liquid on these edges, wipe up immediately!
  • Never spray cleaner/vinegar/water directly onto the mirror—this helps avoid “black edge.”
  • If you have several wall-mounted mirrors next to each other, do not clean across their joints. Liquid can collect in these areas and cause damage. Instead clean each mirror separately.
  • Don’t use newspaper with a soy-based ink. Source: HowToCleanStuff
