How to Clean Mirrored Acrylic

To maintain the shining appearance of your acrylic mirror you need to clean it with care and follow our instructions below:

  1. Add a splash of mild liquid detergent to warm water,
  2. Begin by removing any dust particles and stubborn debris using a lint-free cloth and water.
  3. Using a dry soft cloth, gently wipe the mirror dry.
  4. For added protection, with a new dry cloth generously spray your acrylic with VuPlex Plastic Cleaner and Anti-Static Polish Spray and wipe down

Remember – Do not use solvents, such as methylated spirits and turpentine; use of such materials may cause irreversible surface damage to your acrylic mirrors.

Some cleaning products are deemed as ‘safe’ to use on acrylic mirrors, but why pay more when a simple soap and water solution will suffice.
