Before starting cleaning with products, water or any other material, it is necessary to remove the accumulated dust. Mirrors are items that are exposed and end up accumulating dust, grease and dirt. Remove excess dust with a duster or a dry, soft cloth, or dirt will stick to the mirror and make cleaning difficult.
When applying any product, never apply the solution directly on the mirror surface, first apply it and a cloth and then wipe the product so that there is no risk of the mirror staining or something like that. This prevents stains or the product from slipping to the back of the mirror causing damage or peeling off the wall. The most suitable products for cleaning mirrors are water and mild soap, but do not overdo it. Make a mixture of water and mild soap or water and alcohol, but be careful not to use too much soap or alcohol in the mixture. Just four drops of neutral detergent or 1 measure of alcohol for half a measure of water. Apply the mixture with a spray bottle over the entire surface of the mirror and avoid wetting the edges or frames, as they may stain.
If the frame is made of wood, use a specific product to clean wood and if it is made of plastic, wipe with a damp cloth. You should work fast, because as the liquid dries on the mirror surface, it will create spots. To remove stubborn stains, rub the surface with a soft sponge dipped in a mild soap and water solution. You can also use hot water to enhance cleaning. If the mirror is not so dirty, a cloth soaked in alcohol is enough to clean and shine your mirror leaving it looking like new. Use paper and a soft cloth to dry or paper towel so that it is lint-free. If the mirror is too big, clean it in parts so that the applied products do not dry out and create stains as we have already warned. Both to clean and to dry the mirror, make circular movements, so the end result will be better.
