How do you clean a Venetian mirror?

1 Answer

Regular glass cleaners don’t contain that much vinegar. This means that these cleaners are good for mild cleansing, but for antique glass Venetian mirrors, which tend to get cloudy, a more thorough way to clean is to use only white vinegar. Dampen a clean soft cloth with a solution of white vinegar and water (one part vinegar to two parts water) and apply to your Venetian glass mirror. After you’ve cleaned your Venetian mirror with vinegar, clean the mirror with warm water on a soft cloth in order to get rid of the vinegar smell. Alternatively, if you have difficulty with the smell of vinegar, use rubbing alcohol instead (but be sure that you’re only applying these methods to the glass rather than the frame).
