Mirror cleaning is easy. Use the regular glass cleaning products, and wipe with clean old newspapers. If it doesn't help, ask for more tips.

Miror, big or small, must be cleaned with paper and not any cloth.

Eh, I've always done fine with a clean, pref low-lint, cotton cloth. I was taught to wipe the mirror only in one direction and I like to use non-ammmonia alcohol based cleaners or vinegar. Haven't done any humongous mirrors in a very long time, but never seemed to have a problem with basic cleaners and rags.

i couldn't agree more. People fuss too much with cleaning methods I think and usualy the old fashioned ways seem to be the best. A cloth and a window cleaning chemical or just a damp micro fibre cloth can do just as well.

So, what shouldn't we use when cleaning a mirror? I'm afraid of scratching it.

Microfiber, yeah, that's a good material. Almost forgot about that. Worked for a guy who swore by them for glass. I can take them or leave them, though they are a little better than regular rags and never leave lint behind.

I don't know if scratching a mirror should be any kind of worry. CLEAN cloth or paper won't ever scratch (but something with a grain of dirt on it sure might). I think as long as you don't fling things around, slide your spray bottle acrosst it, or go at it with something scratchy like a scrubby pad or something, you'll be OK. (Best way to get grime and stubborn dirt is to saturate it and leave it for a few minutes and wipe it off. Or Goo Gone or somesuch. I've used single edged razor blades to get tape and the like off with nary a scratch, though you may not want to do that if you're deathly afraid of hurting a mirror.)

try newspapers - they do really good job. Just apply a window cleaning solution (bought from the market or homemade one) and then wipe with the wrinkled paper. That's it

When you are going to clean up a big mirror then care must be taken because there is chances that it can break. So you have to clean up it very smoothly. You can also take help from professional cleaner who are doing this job very effectively.

Microfiber cloths made specifically for mirrors and glass do a fantastic job. If it is a really big mirror I would use the same method as professional window cleaners use.

If you want to clean a big mirror then you can use the chemical which are available in the market. With this chemical you can easily make your mirror more clean which looks like beautiful and nice.

Big mirrors usually require very light tools to clean them as whatever precaution we take there is the possibility to leave scratch because of any heavy cleaning item. Moreover the solution should be smooth with which you are cleaning the mirror so that it can be wiped in one time itself.

Although there are a number of products or solutions available to clean mirrors or other glasses you can do it yourself too. Take a piece of newspaper and wipe the mirror in one direction. You will see it is cleaned within minutes.

I agree, newspapers are very good and effective for cleaning mirrors. Newspapers clean all types of mirrors with ease.

I got a tip for cleaning mirrors; use a three step method and a squeegee.
Most of the cleaner like vinegar, amonia, dish soap and window cleaning solutions all aret great for the first step in the cleaning process, but the second step should be a squeegee.

The rubber blades wip the surface clean from debris to the direction of squeegee. The third step is to wipe the surface with a dry cotton or micro fiber towel, the idea is to litely buff in a shine.

Try it, let me know it works for you.
