Care
Traditional Peruvian mirrors are created using a traditional technique where gold leaf is applied to a hand carved wooden shape. This inherently makes the mirrors delicate but beautiful. Clean with a soft cloth or duster. The mirror can be clean by applying a small amount of glass cleaner to a soft cloth or paper towel and cleaning in a circular motion. Avoid using chemical cleaners on the gold leaf.
