Acrylic sheet is incredibly easy to work with and install, so it’s great for a variety of applications in and around your home, or for commercial spaces. With the right care, acrylic mirrors can last in great condition for years.
To maintain the appearance of your acrylic mirror finish and ensure that it stays looking its best for years to come; here are a few tips for keeping your mirror clean.
- Firstly, remove any dust from the surface using a lint-free cloth – micro-fibre cloths are great for cleaning acrylic. You can add a splash of mild soap to warm water and use this to clean the mirror too, wipe it afterwards with a chamois leather cloth to avoid any streaks. This will help to remove any static charge from the sheet, particularly right after you’ve removed the protective film after installation and will help to avoid attracting more dust.
- Don’t be tempted to use solvents, such as turpentine, spirits or harsh chemical cleaners, as these will cause irreversible damage to the surface of the mirror. If your mirror develops any light scratches, these can be removed easily using a good quality plastic polish and a soft cloth.
- Follow the instructions on the container and gently buff away the scratches using small circular movements. Finally, remove any residue with a clean soft cloth and your mirror should be looking good as new once again.
The opportunities for creating a unique and stylish mirror are practically endless – you can create a mirror from design to give a fun and modern element to your home or Office.
