Even the most elegant home decor accessories need to have a cleaning and maintenance routine. For any décor accessories especially those that are of reflective surfaces a lot of cleaning needs to be done because such pieces are bold. In the case of a sunburst mirror there needs to be regular cleaning in addition to maintenance routines that will ensure the décor accessory remains sparkling. With this type of mirror it is not easy to clean it because most of its designs come in intricate designs that can be difficult to wipe. Despite this there should be frequent cleaning of all surfaces from the circular mirror to the surrounding framing.
Depending on the position where a sunburst mirror has been placed it can easily get smudges, if it is used mainly as a functional piece this is even more likely. With this type of mirror it is easy to notice accumulated dirt say in the form of dust or finger prints. These can instantly bring down the appearance of the mirror and they calls for frequent wiping. It is important to note that cleaning of this type of mirror does not us just any materials.
When one is cleaning a sunburst mirror, there are three elements that should never be used. These are acids, abrasives, and alkalis. With this knowledge one should ensure that the choice of cleaning detergent does not contain any or all of the three elements. This is because they can remove the silvering on the mirror as well as the polish on the surrounding framing. Such chemicals should therefore never be used in any instance.
A preferred liquid when cleaning a sunburst mirror is white vinegar, this is not used alone but it is mixed with a little amount of water. During the cleaning process it is not wise to spray the cleaning solution directly on the mirror; instead one should do the spraying on a piece of cloth before the contents are transferred to a mirror surface.
The cleaning of this type of mirror should be done with care so that no excess liquid is used and no rough pieces of cloth are used. Too much liquid on the sunburst mirror can seep into the framing and this can be very damaging if the mirror is enclosed in a wooden framing. Even in the case of metal framing less cleaning liquid should be used so that polish on the frame does not chip.
