Newspapers do not work for me. They left dark streaks on the mirror (maybe the ink). I use an ordinary glass cleaner - I prefer Cinch because it smells nice. I use a very soft cloth to clean a mirror. I agree - large mirrors can be tricky owing to size and weight. Just be very careful doing it.

We have the solutions to all your glass-cleaning woes. Windex and old newspaper is really the best shiner and is good on recycling. You can also try white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of baking soda! Baking soda is super awesome for cleaning. Hope, definitely it will help you.

If the large mirror was in a home (that is what I clean), I would use my Swiffer mop to reach the high areas. I dislike Windex intensely - the smell bothers me and it leaves streaks. I use a glass cleaning product called Cinch. I would spray that onto a damp white washcloth, put the cloth on the mop, and get to hard to reach places that way. Oh - also, mirrors DO collect dust, like anything else, so its probably a good idea to first dust it with a microfiber dust cloth.

Thanks advance!
I can suggest a DIY cleaner for streak-free mirrors. For the solution, you will require the following ingredients:
-16 oz. rubbing alcohol
-1 teaspoon dish soap
-1/2 cup ammonia
-1/2 gallon of water
Also, you will need a gallon jug and a spray bottle as supplies. All you have to do is to fill the empty gallon jug 1/2 full of water and add the above ingredients. Be sure to mix the dish soap last so that it won't lather too much when pouring in the other ingredients. Now fill the rest of the jug with water. Gently shake this mixture and transfer it into a spray bottle. I can assure you that it will make short work of the grease and grind and will save you a lot of time. This was something I used before. Now that I have hired a regular cleaning service in Mississauga due to my tight work schedule, they are the one keeping my mirrors streak-free.

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.

Sorry, but ammonia is not healthy for you or anyone to breathe in it's fumes. I am not willing to sacrifice my own health just to earn a living. I NEVER use ammonia, or bleach now. NEVER except when I wash my work rags. THOSE do get soaked in hot water, detergent and bleach for several hours.

Gather all the cleaning supplies such as white vinegar, water (preferably distilled water), spray bottle or a large bowl, microfiber cloth/soft lint-free cloth/newspaper, and cotton swabs/soft toothbrush.

In case you are cleaning a glass window, lay towels on the window sills. This is particularly important when cleaning a window with wooden windowsills.

Create a cleaning solution by mixing one part white vinegar and four parts water.

Spray it on your cleaning cloth, or simply dip the cleaning tool in this solution and wring out the excess fluid.

In case the size of the glass is too large or if you are using a newspaper for cleaning then it would be better to spray the solution on the glass itself.

Rub the glass surface in a circular motion to remove all the spots. Next, wipe with vertical strokes, followed by horizontal swipes to make the glass clean and shiny.

Clean the corners and edges with a cotton swab or a soft toothbrush.

Finish off with a quick buff using newspaper, or an old cotton t-shirt/cloth diapers to polish the glass.

That is a very good point, to cover the windowsill.
