We all want our mirrors to give the best possible reflection. Depending on the quality of your mirror or its placement in your home, the likeness reflected back may not be the most accurate. Thankfully, there are simple ways to ensure your mirror is always in peak quality. Follow these steps to get the best mirror possible.

Keep it clean

Keeping a mirror clean is super easy—just give it a swipe with a water-dampened gentle rag. A quick follow-up with a soft, lint-free cloth dries the mirror and avoids particles left behind by paper towels. Dust the mirror’s frame or rim with a microfiber cloth, and your mirror will not only look fantastic, but it will also improve the reflections.

Light it up

Good lighting changes everything, and that is especially true when it comes to getting your best mirror reflection. If your mirror is in a dimly lit or light-challenged environment, start by changing your bulbs to something brighter like cool, white light that mimics daylight. Adding another light source—like a lamp—to the area will help. Swap out heavy, light-blocking window treatments for sheer curtains or Venetian blinds.

Go for quality

The glass in your average mirror is probably fine, but who wants to be basic? Upgrade your glass and your mirror will be clearer, brighter, and whiter. Better glass equals a truer reflection.

Love your reflection

Appreciate the things in yourself that don’t show up in a mirror. Positive self-image is everything, so encourage yourself with daily affirmations. Stare in the mirror and keep loving what you see.
