Doc

You thought cleaning a 10" mirror is hard....

Recommended Posts

I was quite fascinated to see that these things can (apparently?) be blast-cleaned with a CO2 jet. Apparently the CO2 "snow" has just the right hardness to dispose of insect suicides, random nocturnal gunge etc., without removing the surface coating! And, since it sublimates, there's no liquid smearing problems. Now where's m'fire extinguisher... ;)

Nah - no worries there - just dunk it in some warm soapy water and put it on the drainer till its dry - tut tut - men always make it seem so hard ;)
