Bathrooms mirrors (and their frames) go through a lot of daily wear and tear. Water, spit, fog, toothpaste, fingerprints, hairspray, human/household grime (ew!) and dust really start to add up for a murky and dirty reflection. Follow the shortened instructions below from to make your mirror pop!
What you will need:
  • Soft Cloth
  • Old Newspaper
  • Foam Shaving Cream
  • White Vinegar
How to wash your mirror:
  • Pre-clean the mirror by wiping it with a soft cloth. This will remove heavy dirt and dust
  • Use newspaper and water to get a streak-free shine. Crumple up newspaper in usable sizes. Dip into water and rub in slow circles across the mirror.
  • Go over wet areas again with dry newspaper to prevent drip marks. (Tip: If you still have streaks, just repeat steps 2 and 3. A residue may have built up from using commercial cleaners in the past.)
How to avoid damaging your mirror:
  • Avoid using commercial cleaners with acid, alkali, or ammonia—they are too abrasive.
  • Keep liquid away from the edges of your mirror.
  • Never spray cleaner/vinegar/water directly onto the mirror.
  • Don’t use newspaper with a soy-based ink.
Now that you built and installed your own bathroom mirror frame with ease, following these steps for a cleaner mirror should be simple!
