by | Sep 4, 2014 | Business

Have you added decorative components to the windows and doors in your home by paying for bevelled mirrors in Sutton? If so, you will know that these clusters of glass reflect light beautifully, and add an elegant touch to any room. Available in three and four piece designs, bevelled glass boasts a wide variety of uses, and can be created with virtually limitless designs. When combined with stained overlay borders, the glass will give a room a retro Victorian or contemporary feel. To get your money’s worth, take the time to maintain the mirror with a little bit of tender loving care.

Pre-Treat the Mirror

Preventative maintenance is the best form, because it will save you time, hassle and money in the future. By pre-treating bevelled mirrors in Sutton, you can prevent grime from building up and affecting the mirror’s sheen. A clean, soft cloth can be used to do remove marks, or you can swipe the surface with dampened kitchen paper or newspaper to make the mirror sparkle. Remember to keep the room ventilated by opening the window when pre-treating the mirror, and lift stubborn marks with white vinegar and warm water.

Use a Homemade Cleaner

Sometimes, the ingredients you find in your kitchen cupboard will work better for cleaning bevelled mirrors in Sutton than cleaning products you find in the supermarket! A natural cleaner is rubbing alcohol, which when mixed with water, will make the mirror shine. Borax is also a good ingredient for homemade cleaners because when applied to glass, this white powder will remove streaks and leave a squeaky clean finish. Wash the glass with a clean sponge or piece of newspaper a couple of times a week for the best results. To prevent water marks from forming, use a squeegee to dry the mirror.

Refrain from Using Chemicals

You may think that using chemicals will result in a better sheen, but chemicals can actually damage mirrors in Sutton. Cleaning solutions made with alkali, acid or ammonia will dull the surface. If you really insist on using chemical-based solutions, water the mixture down first and always wash off with warm water. To prevent fog build-up from occurring every time you take a shower, invest in some anti-fog wipes, which are safe and effective for use on glass with all types of coatings.
