How do you clean mirrors? Can this be done quickly and efficiently?

I use Method Glass cleaner with kitchen roll, never had a problem

I recommend Method Glass Cleaner. Use it with a non fluffy cloth. I find it is quick and smear free on windows and mirrors.

GG crossed posts. grin

I also use glass cleaner, and a Kitchen roll, again, never had a problem.

Spray of Pledge multi-surface on mirrors and glass doors throughout the house, buffed with a microfibre cloth.
Not the most environmentally aware method, but the way I've done it for years!

I'm another one who uses Method and kitchen roll.

Narta I am puzzled why you need advice on this matter. is there something hidden in the question that we are all missing, or how is it that you have never seen any mention of glass cleaning anywhere before?

I clean mine with a damp cloth dipped in warm water and white vinegar and dry/polish them after with a soft, old linen tea towel. We have mirrored wardrobe doors that get covered with hand prints (and dog's nose prints) and it brings them up a treat.

I use glass cleaner and a glass cloth, seems to work.

I used to use vinegar (and vodka, at one point, then I ran out) but read that it can corrode the silver backing to the mirror if it seeps under the glass.

Ah, I see.

Damp cotton cloth.

Use hot soapy water to remove the residue from previous cleaners.
Dry with a lint free cloth.
Now just use diluted white vinegar in a spray..

Clever though…..still not clicking the link.

I never use ant ‘product’. Just glass/mirror e cloths. Wet the first cloth with just water, dry off with the second. Sparkling!

MerylStreep Mon 15-Aug-22 21:55:16

how do you clean mirrors with my hands. Hope that helps, not!!!!

Sago Mon 15-Aug-22 23:53:00

No link clicking!
Nice try though!

Strange place to post about how to clean mirrors - the work/volunteering forum. I suppose cleaning mirrors could be classed as work though! ??

white vinegar and water in a spray bottle and an ecloth.
