Quality Checking To know the quality of reflection on an Aranmula metal mirror, the following test would be sufficient. When you touch your finger on the surface of an ordinary mirror, a gap remains between the finger and the image produced. But, in the case of the Aranmula metal mirror, there will be no gap between the image and the finger. This indicates the fact that only a real, distortion-free image is produced on an Aranmula Kannadi.

Mirror Caring The mirror should be kept under room temperature and away from heat and dust. Do not touch by fingers on the reflective surface. Finger prints with moisture should be cleaned off immediately preventing corrosion.

Mirror Cleaning Sprinkle red oxide powder, blue or talcum powder on the mirror and hold it in a slanting position allowing the dust and other particles to roll off from the reflective surface. Use cotton wool and rub the surface very softly and smoothly in vertical direction. In case of any fungus formation just use few drops of edible oil on the affected portion with the fingers and rub it for one or two minutes and then clean it as mentioned above. The red oxide process of cleaning can be repeated continuously five times or until you get the original reflection. Avoid useing any other metal polish on the mirror.
