Love hot showers? Here’s why your mirrors don’t!


Everyone loves the rejuvenating feeling you get when you step into a hot shower. Whether you begin or end your day with it, you’re sure to feel good afterwards. You step out, wipe the steam from the mirror and suddenly see BLACK SPOTS?!

Not on your freshly cleaned face, but on the edges of your mirror. They weren’t noticeable before, but now they’ve grown and make your otherwise refreshed face seem dirty. Why?

Your poor mirror suffers from a very common problem known as de-silvering. It happens from repeated steam buildup, where moisture penetrates the silver coating on the back of your mirror, causing it to separate from the glass.

What can you do about it?

You could replace the mirror, but that can be quite expensive and most wall-mounted mirrors are glued in place and very heavy. Removing the mirror is messy and can be dangerous making replacement a logistical challenge to say the least. So do you have to give up your steamy showers? Of course not!

Luckily, there is an easy, cost effective solution. A DIY custom mirror frame! It will not only cover the unsightly black edges, but add a touch of elegance to your bathroom.
