What mirror cleaning techniques are the fairest of them all? The organic and eco-friendly ones, of course! Here are our healthy tips to clean the mirrors in your home.
- Vinegar and Water Solution:
- Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on the mirror and wipe it off with a lint-free cloth or newspaper. Vinegar helps remove streaks and leaves the mirror sparkling.
- Lemon Juice and Water:
- Combine fresh lemon juice with water in a spray bottle. The natural acidity of lemon helps cut through grime and leaves a fresh scent. Wipe the mirror clean with a soft cloth.
- DIY Glass Cleaner:
- Create your own eco-friendly glass cleaner by mixing 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Shake well before use, spray on the mirror, and wipe clean with a cloth.
- Microfiber Cloth:
- Use a microfiber cloth for cleaning mirrors. Microfiber is effective in capturing dust and grime without the need for additional cleaning solutions. It also reduces the chances of streaking.
- Baking Soda Paste:
- Create a paste by mixing baking soda with water. Apply the paste to stubborn spots or stains on the mirror, gently scrub with a soft cloth, and wipe clean. This is effective for removing residue without using harsh chemicals.
- DIY Steam Cleaner:
- Fill a bowl with hot water and place it in front of the mirror. The steam helps loosen dirt and grime. Wipe the mirror with a clean cloth or use a squeegee for a streak-free finish.
- Avoid Commercial Glass Cleaners:
- Many commercial glass cleaners contain chemicals that may be harmful to the environment. Opt for homemade solutions or environmentally friendly glass cleaners.
- Open Windows for Ventilation:
- When cleaning, open windows to ensure proper ventilation. This helps disperse any fumes from cleaning solutions and contributes to a healthier indoor environment.
