How To Dispose Of A Broken Mirror Safely:
Before you reuse those broken mirrors, you should take safety measures. After all, when a mirror breaks, it turns into sharp pieces. Even a single shard of glass ground down can become sharp powder that can cause harm.
To stay safe and do the job well, you need to take care of yourself. Use some tools to make things right. Begin with wearing safety clothes. It’s important not to have any skin exposed because a sharp piece of glass might hit you unexpectedly. Closed-toed shoes, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt are better choices than what you wear in the summer.
You can use something to protect your eyes unless you have to break the mirror more, then it’s really important. Make sure your hands are safe too – wear gloves that won’t easily get cut. Kitchen gloves that resist cuts, thick gardening gloves, or tough leather tool handlers are necessary to keep your hands safe.
Remember, taking precautions is like putting on a superhero suit to keep you safe and sound!
