Care & Maintenance
ALWAYS apply cleaner on a soft, lint free cloth then wipe the mirror
DO use cleaners that are alcohol based, rather than ammonia or other strong chemicals
DO Keep your mirror dry in high humidity areas such as bath or shower areas to extend the life of your mirror
In bathrooms, installing a quality ventilation fan with a timer will not only extend the life of your mirrors, but it will also prevent moisture from attacking your fixtures, paint, etc. Make sure to dry the mirror thoroughly, especially any exposed edges or seams.
NEVER clean your mirror with abrasives, steel wool, acid or alkali, vinegar
Avoid cleaners that contain ammonia, chlorine bleach, powdered cleansers, dirty or gritty rags. Again cleaners must be applied to a soft clean lint free cloth and then wipe the mirror.
NEVER spray any cleaner directly on the mirror's surface
Unless you can guarantee that the cleaner does not run behind the mirror or over a seam where it can get behind the glass and deteriorate the mirror backing. Most glass cleaners will run down the glass and penetrate seams and edges damaging the mirror backing.
