If you have put up a decorative mirror in your hall or bathroom, but over time it has started to lose its shine, then do not fret as you will soon be able to have it gleaming again. When you go about cleaning the mirror to remove the dirt and any discolouration you need to use the right procedure, avoiding spoiling it further. Once cleaned, in the correct manner, you will be able to admire its beauty for many more years yet. Elsewhere you will be able to find advice on how to actually go about cleaning the mirror, but it is important to consider a few things first. Firstly, the frame itself needs to be cleaned differently from the way you go about removing dirt from the surface of the mirror itself. It is also worth pointing out that ingredients such as acids, alkalis and abrasives, should not be used at all during the cleaning process. Do not spray any cleaning solution directly onto the mirrorÂ’s surface. The type of mirror you have will determine the cleaning method most suitable for it. Afterwards, you can tell that the mirror has been cleaned in the appropriate manner by the fact that it now sparkles again, without any streaks being present.
