Cleaning Instructions

Riofoto mirrors are coated with Rhodium, a durable metallic finish. Care should be taken to ensure both proper cleaning and longevity.

The recommended method for cleaning mirrors is steam autoclaving using the following procedure:

  • Hand wash the mirrors with clean gauze and germicidal soap containing 2% chlorhexide.
  • Dry mirrors using gauze sponges or a lint-free surgical towel. Wrap the mirrors in the surgical towel taking care to separate them with layers of towel.
  • Place in a steam autoclave unit and process.

Chemical sterilants — We do not recommend the use of chemical or cold sterilants. These chemicals may leave permanent streaks on the surface of the mirrors.
