2 Week Spring Cleaning Challenge

Spring Cleaning Challenge - How to Clean Mirrors

Day 6, Mirrors and Glass

Sparkling glass and mirrors flood your home with light. From glass tabletops to mirrors on the wall, use a lint-free cloth to remove fingerprints and dust from their surfaces without leaving streaks. Believe it or not, a dry cloth works wonders when glass or mirrors are merely dusty and not actually grimy.


Spraying any cleaning solution directly on mirrors can wet the backing, ultimately damaging the mirror. For dirtier glass or mirrors, spray a microfiber cloth with your own glass cleaner made up of a tablespoon of lemon juice in a quart of warm water. A half cup of white vinegar will add extra cleaning power. Afterward, a weekly swipe with a dry cloth will keep the brilliant shine on your glass and mirrors.
