1. Spatulas

A mirror should only be glued to intact, flat tiles. If your tiles show signs of damage, you should first repair them with filler. Note the drying times on the package!

2. Cleaning

In order for the adhesive to stick well, the surfaces that come into contact with the adhesive must be free of dust, dirt and grease. Therefore, you should first clean the tiles and the back of the mirror with a little warm water and a grease-dissolving cleaning agent (washing-up liquid, nail polish remover or similar).

Then rub the tiles and mirrors dry with a microfiber cloth. Do not use a fluffy cloth to rub dry!

3. Identify tiles

Since the position of the mirror cannot be corrected after gluing, you should definitely plan it carefully and mark it beforehand.

To do this, you can first hold the mirror against the wall and mark how high it should hang. Also mark the sides.

Then measure the mirror with a tape measure and check with the tape measure whether it is e.g.B. hangs in the middle above the sink. Correct the markings if necessary.

4th. Apply glue

Now brush the back of the mirror generously with glue. Make sure you apply glue to the corners and edges.

If you are using duct tape, be sure to cover all corners and edges with duct tape. However, it should not overlap!

5. Attach

Now press the mirror against the wall. Get help so you don't have to correct your position! This is not possible with adhesive tape and with liquid adhesive only immediately after application.

If you have used liquid glue, you should prop up the mirror during the drying time. You can e.g.B. brace an extendable shower stall rod against it.
