What’s the secret to keeping mirrors sparkling clean? The answer lies in your liquor cabinet.
Cleaning mirrors can be a hassle at the best of times. Despite attempting to wipe clean with a solution spray and cloth using sweeping, circular motions, you’ll find that the greasy fingerprint smear you’re attempting to get rid off isn’t quite disappearing and the residue is just spreading across a larger section of the glass.
But it turns out there’s an easy way to see a clear reflection when you look at yourself in the mirror, and all you have to do is steal a trick from the 1940s — by using a spritz of gin!
In research commissioned by Marigold to celebrate its 70th birthday, they found that a spritz of gin will rapidly restore your mirrors to its sparkling best.
If dull and smeared mirrors are ruining your reflection, mix equal parts of gin and water in a spray bottle and spray onto mirrors. Then all you have to do is buff off with a clean, dry cloth for smear-free mirrors and admire yourself and your handy work.
Who knew?! It turns out gin isn’t just your favorite tipple but now your favorite cleaning hack too.
