Whether you buy framed mirrors online or pick up an antique mirror from a vintage store, black spots on the mirror’s corner or edges are bound to occur thanks to “mirror rot” or desilvering (you may have seen us cover the topic before on an earlier post). Silver nitrate is the responsible component for transforming plain glass to mirrors, and it’s safeguarded from damage with a copper-sulfate protective coating. Paint sealants also provide extra protection for the mirror’s back. But when these protective coatings are exposed to various elements, including air, moisture and cleaning solutions, dark spots appear or “desilvers.” Desilvering occurs thanks to the oxidation of the silver nitrate and copper sulfate, which is caused by the condensed moisture from splashes of water and other elements on the edge of the mirror. While these black spots are repairable, mirror restoration or “resilvering” requires professional help. It can be problematic because professional restoration services can be pricey and can involve the use of chemicals that are toxic to you and your environment. The good news is you can take preventative and eco-friendly restorative measures to keep mirror black spots at bay. Read More
