To maintain the appearance of your acrylic mirror 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 – microfibre 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, methylated 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.
