Caring for your mirror.
The mirror is a high-quality Acrylic mirror with a vinyl cover for protection during transportation, and when removed you should reveal a clean, scratch free surface.
Your mirror will require no more than a gentle dust and polish and maybe the occasional clean with a proprietary cleaning product.
The most important part of cleaning you mirror is the cloth used, always use cotton wool pads or a clean soft lint free microfiber cloth. Do not use kitchen roll or tissue as this is often harsh and may scratch your mirror.
Occasionally there may be some residue left from the protective cover. There are many household products that will remove this, from simple Olive Oil to dedicated adhesive removers and even WD40.Then a clean with warm soapy water or a proprietary window cleaning product. A list of tested products can be found below. The use of solvents such as Acetone, methylated spirits and paint thinners are not recommended and may cause surface damage.
Fine scratches can be removed using an abrasive cleaner such as metal polish, cream cleaner or even tooth paste. For deeper scratches one of the many commercially available acrylic scratch removers may be required.
Take care when using any cleaning product and always read the instructions.
