🧼 A few simple steps before cleaning your mirror !

Dust off your mirror

Before you start your cleaning session, always remember to dust your mirror first. This will ensure you have a healthy surface ready for stripping !

We recommend using a microfibre cloth, but if you don’t have microfibres, you can simply use a soft cloth. The techniques I’m going to give you today are simple, effective and healthy.

Prepare your equipment

The most important step is to prepare your equipment. To carry out all these tips, you’ll need :
  • Lemon juice
  • A potato
  • White vinegar
  • Soap
  • Hot water
  • A spray bottle
  • A few clean rags

And now you’re ready to fight the streaks on your mirror !

🧼 4 easy ways to clean your mirror

  • Tip 1 – Lemon juice 🍋

Mix lemon juice and warm water in a spray bottle. Then spray your cloth with this mixture and rub your mirror using up and down movements.

  • Tip 2 – Potatoes 🥔

Cut a potato in half and rub its flesh into your mirror. Use a soft cloth with a few drops of white vinegar. Then rub your mirror in an up-and-down motion to remove any marks.

  • Tip 3 – White vinegar 🍇

Take a spray bottle and fill it halfway with hot water, then add white vinegar. Use this mixture to wash your mirrors, using an up-and-down motion with a microfibre cloth.

  • Tip 4 – The white of Meudon ⛏

This technique is a little stronger than the others, so it’s certainly the most effective !

You can also use blanc de Meudon to clean your mirrors. Mix Meudon white, soap and warm water in a container. Soak your cloth in this mixture and wash your mirrors. Finally, dry with a clean cloth.

This type of stainless steel is an almost perfect imitation of the mirror we all know so well. Mirror stainless steel is much sought-after for its more noble appearance than glass. Thanks to the properties of stainless steel, it adapts perfectly to humid and food environments without the risk of shattering into a thousand pieces like its cousin. So you can use it to decorate your bathroom, kitchen or living room.

What’s more, we can make cut-outs up to 2980 x 1480 mm, so you can cover a wall from floor to ceiling, for example. This type of stainless steel can add a chic, trendy touch to your home’s interior design.

With these superb tips, you can now forget about fingerprints, rags and grease marks on all the mirrors in your home !
