Cleaning Mirrors

We love mirrors!  Mirrors over fireplace mantles, console tables, buffets and chests, framed mirrors in bathrooms and even over headboards.  Mirrors are used to reflect your surroundings, make a room appear larger and to complete a room.  Cleaning mirrors is not always easy.  You want to keep mirrors looking dust free and with a shine.  You also want to be careful not to damage frames with harsh chemicals.  Here are some tips:  Get a spray bottle, fill it with a mixture of distilled water and a small amount of vinegar.  Use a clean paint brush to dust frame first.  Never, ever spray mirror directly.  Spray  your mixture of water and vinegar on a clean cloth and start wiping.  The trick is not to let any water or chemicals run down your frame, this will in time cause damage to your frame.  For a better shine, you can finish wiping with a small sheet of newspaper.  Following these tips will guarantee your mirrors will look beautiful for a lifetime!
