Tip: If you need to use more than 1 curing film to cover the crack, add a drop of resin for each film that you need to place. Make sure you cover the entire crack! This article was co-authored by our trained team of editors and researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
Together, they cited information from 10 references. Categories: Mirrors. Learn why people trust wikiHow. Learn more Clean the mirror with soap and warm water. Take a sponge or a clean cloth and soak it in warm water. Apply a drop of dish soap and work the sponge or cloth into a lather. Wipe the cracked area clean to remove dirt and dust from the surface.
Remove any loose fragments of glass from the crack. Remove the adhesive backing of the stabilizer film. Take the clear stabilizer strip and locate the edge of the adhesive backing. Use your fingertips to peel off the backing to expose the adhesive. Be careful not to allow the film to stick to itself or it may no longer be effective. Press the stabilizer film over the crack. Place a corner of the stabilizer film onto the mirror at the edge of the crack.
Apply the film over the crack by rolling it over the surface from the corner so no air gets trapped beneath the film. Use your fingers to smooth out the stabilizer film.
Run your fingertips from 1 end of the stabilizer film to the other. Work to push out any air bubbles that may be trapped beneath the film and create a tight seal over the crack. Fill the syringe with the epoxy resin adhesive. The epoxy resin adhesive comes with a plastic syringe. Slowly pull the plunger to pull out the resin and fill the syringe.
You may need to cut the tip of the syringe with a pair of scissors in order to use it. If the resin did not come with a syringe, you can find one at an auto supply store, department store, or online. Insert the tip of the syringe through the stabilizer film. Place the tip of the syringe over the stabilizer film roughly at the center. Use gentle pressure to push the syringe through the film and into the crack. The tip of the syringe should be inside of the crack. Push down the plunger to fill the crack with resin.
Keep the syringe still and slowly push on the plunger. The resin will leave the syringe and fill the crack. The stabilizer film will keep the resin contained in the crack. Add a small amount of resin at a time. If you apply too much too quickly it could form an uneven bulge under the film.
Wait 20 minutes to allow the resin to harden.
The new stage show is based on a classic Agatha Christie novel
After you apply the resin to the crack, slowly pull the tip of the syringe out of the stabilizer film. Leave the resin undisturbed for at least 10 minutes so it can start to set and harden in the crack.
If the servants that cleaned these mirrors were to break one, well, let's just say it was a lot easier to replace a human being back then than a mirror. Also, if a more middle-class family were to buy one and then break it, it would probably take quite a while to scrounge up the money for a new one--say, around seven years. So the warning to clumsy children wasn't so much about "bad luck" for seven years if they broke the mirror, but rather "continuous beatings.
Xandria - When The Mirror Cracks Lyrics
This Irish symbol is possibly the most well-known good luck charm in the world, which is somewhat odd considering the whole "luck of the Irish" thing is a bit of an oxymoron historians say it originates from the fact that the world just seems luckier when you're inebriated.
The simplest reason the four-leaf clover is considered lucky is because they're so rare, with only around one in 10, clovers sporting four leaflets. At least they were rare, as these days there are numerous places to buy your very own four-leaf clover online. The use of clover as a lucky charm dates back to pre-Christian times when Druidism was the religion of the day in Ireland.
The four leaves also have a fairly obvious cross-like appearance, which was a revered symbol even before Christianity. Clover is also edible and, in fact, quite nutritious. So much so that some people think it even helps fight cancer. The Irish probably considered finding a patch fortunate, if only because it was a change from all the goddamn potatoes. Oh, and the four-leaf clovers are totally the best marshmallow shape in Lucky Charms.

Now with a chocolate version, for those who don't have the time to wait to develop diabetes. Millions of people each year buy rabbit's feet keychains and such hoping they'll bring them good luck and prosperity. While not particularly lucky for countless bunnies left dragging bloody stumps around, they're still getting a better deal than the kangaroos whose scrotums wind up as souvenirs in Australia. Ever wonder how rabbits wound up among the Easter decorations? Back in the days when fertility was everything, people envied rabbits' extraordinary gift for breeding.
Since there were no Discovery Channel documentaries to prove that they earned their copious offspring with a steady diet of non-stop boning, folks just assumed that rabbits were really lucky. So rabbits became sacred, and were associated with things like childbirth. When Christianity was rolling up all the pagan symbols into their holiday iconography, they decided to stick rabbits on the holiday celebrating rebirth , since there was no stopping the adorable little bastards at just one birth. But why is the back foot specifically lucky?
Well hares, which are often confused with rabbits, are one of the very few four-legged animals whose back feet hit the ground before their front feet while running. The strange tracks hares left were enough to convince people the back foot must have magical qualities. And in that, you can see the real root cause of all of the beliefs: The bar for convincing people something was magical back then was just set really goddanmed low.
