Keep reading to learn how to clean a bathroom mirror without leaving streaks.

Start By Spot Cleaning the Mirror

Bathroom mirrors go through a lot.

For this reason, it’s not unusual for water spots, toothpaste, or hairspray to build up on the surface. To get rid of those spots, you’ll need rubbing alcohol and a few cotton balls.

To clean it, scan the mirror and identify any unwanted spots. Then dip a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and rub until it comes off.

Spray the Mirror With Glass Cleaner

After the spots are gone, it’s time to clean the rest of the glass. You want to use a glass cleaner for this, not a multi-purpose cleaner. You can use either store-bought or homemade glass cleaner.

Take your spray bottle and spray the mirror evenly with a light coat. Then, use a microfiber cloth to wipe the mirror. These are much better than paper towels because they prevent streaks.

When cleaning the mirror, start in the top corner. Wipe the cloth from one end of the mirror to the other. Flip the microfiber cloth and repeat this until you’ve wiped off the entire mirror.

And if your mirror is circular, never wipe in circles! Doing this can cause streaks on your mirror. Just do your best to wipe from one side to the other.

Pro tip: don’t have a microfiber cloth? You can also use crumpled newspapers to clean the mirror.

Clean Corners With a Toothbrush

When wiping down your mirror, the corners don’t always get cleaned.

To fix this problem, you’ll need a toothbrush and rubbing alcohol. Take your toothbrush, dip it in the rubbing alcohol, and scrub the corners of the mirror. And soon after, you’ll see some shiny corners.

Keep Your Bathroom Mirror Clean

Going forward, try to clean your bathroom mirror at least once a month. Doing this will prevent a build-up of dust, dirt, and unwanted spots on the mirror.

To make this task easier, incorporate it into your house cleaning routine! That way, when you mop the floor and dust the shelves, your mirrors get some love too.
