It would be a shame to invest so much in an exquisite mirror design for your lounge or sitting room, only for it to lose its shine due to years of neglect. With just a little bit of care and attention every now and again you can keep your mirror looking at its best all the time. To restore your household mirrors to former glories, you just need to have the right equipment to hand. The following is a simple tip to making your mirrors sparkle again like they did in the past. The restoration of your mirror surface can be achieved by dipping a clean cloth in a 50/50 mix of water or denatured alcohol and borax. Then all you need to do is wipe the mirror using the cloth and finish off by polishing it with a paper towel or lint-free cloth. By doing the above, this should help you to achieve the shine you were hoping for and bring your mirror back to life. When your guests come round to visit they will surely notice the difference in the reflection within the mirror as it can really change its appearance for the better.
