How do you clean the bathroom mirror?

This is just plain frustrating house chore for me. My husband said newspaper will do the tricks but not it doesn't work. I then use lint-free cloth and windex, it's better but not as clean as expected. Every time I visited someone's house or even the mall, I could see their bathroom mirrors are not that clean either, but of course I don't go around criticizing them. So what do you use to clean the bathroom mirrors from dust etc? Do you actually get that clean, dust free surface?

You have asked the right person. I am a house cleaner and I have owned my own company for the past 6 years. I clean bathroom mirrors with a mixture of vinegar and water. I mix about 1/4 vinegar to 3/4 water in a windex bottle. I then just spray it on the mirror and I use paper towels to wipe it. Windex will work too, but the trick is after spraying and wiping with a paper towel, you need to take a dry paper towel and go over it again before the mirror dries. This will get all the streaks. I don't understand you about the dust because I have cleaned thousands and thousands of mirrors and I have never seen dust on a mirro. I think the only way a person can get dust on their mirrors is if they aren't cleaned often enough.

vineger like everyone is saying but i use coffee filters. they dont leave little pieces behind. it is great for eyeglasses too. coffee filters though dont shred like newspaper or paper towels. i mean think of how long it hold wetness and then when removed it still holds together. also dont have to use as much cleaning solution either. it holds it different then a paper towel does. so your products last longer.i also use a paper towel on the bottom of a plate and then put coffee filters on top for when i am dring like fried potatoes , hamburgers, okras etc. it leaves mositure in but doesnt dry it out to much.

I use newspaper to clean the bathroom mirror, I find newspaper is very effective in cleaning it. I atleast do once in a week. I agree with you that some of the people are not very particular about cleaning and they do not take care to clean their mirror, which shows their laziness. Good Post!

I do OK, but it takes a while, and a lot of effort. My mom uses newspaper, and she manages to get her mirrors looking spotless. I use a paper towel and Windex, using up and down motions. I think it gets really streaky looking when someone goes up and down, and then side to side, trying to clean it. It's best to choose one direction, I guess.
