Tips to Keep Your Bathroom Mirrors Looking Like New for a Long Time


Bathroom mirrors aid in daily grooming routines, but can also accentuate the beauty of bathrooms in a big way. For homeowners with small bathrooms, mirrors can be an effective way to create the illusion of a bigger space.

If you're looking to add mirrors to your bathroom, you should know that proper upkeep is essential to maintaining the functionality and aesthetics of the mirrors. Well-cared-for mirrors also last longer.

Here are some useful tips on how to take proper care of your bathroom mirrors. 

Keep your mirrors as dry as possible

Bathrooms are high-humidity areas, and keeping your mirrors dry is essential to avoiding seeing blurry reflections of yourself when you stare in the mirror. Make it a habit to wipe your mirrors with a clean and dry cotton towel or lint-free cloth after each bath. Avoid using paper towels or newspapers because they may leave small flecks of residue behind. 

It's also a good idea to invest in a mirror defogger. This devices can be placed at the back of your bathroom mirrors to help clear fog and keep your mirrors dry and clear.

Keep your mirrors clean

You need to clean your bathroom mirrors regularly to get rid of the gunk that builds up on them over time. But do you know how to do the cleaning the right way? Many homeowners struggle to keep their bathroom mirrors clean and clear because they're using the wrong cleaning products and supplies, aren't using the right cleaning techniques, or both.

For best cleaning results, pick alcohol-based cleaners over ammonia-based cleaners. Rubbing alcohol and a soft, lint-free cloth can deliver the cleaning results needed to keep your mirrors looking pristine. All you need to do is to place small amounts of the alcohol to your cloth and gently rub against the surface of your mirrors.

Steer clear of ammonia-based cleaners because they may leave a haze over the mirror once the cleaner dries up.

Avoid splashing water on your mirrors

Many homeowners like to install their bathroom mirrors just above the bathroom sinks. If you're like these homeowners, you should make sure your mirrors are placed high enough so they don't come into contact with splashing water. Direct contact with water can cause your bathroom mirrors to look smudgy and wear down faster.

With these tips, you can keep your bathroom mirrors looking like new, longer. For more information on how to care for your bathroom mirrors, don't hesitate to consult a glass care specialist.
