Sometimes when you clean a mirror with normal glass cleaner, streaky residue is left behind that makes the mirror look atrocious. Every time you look into the mirror, you see cloudy streaks and they will can you until you figure out a way to remove them. Instead of using commercial cleaners, toss your normal glass cleaner and turn to a homemade cleaning solution that cleans the mirror without leaving streaks.
Things You'll Need
- Spray bottle
- Rubbing alcohol
- Apple cider vinegar
- Microfiber cloth or paper towels
Mix 1 cup apple cider vinegar and 1 cup rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle.
Spray the mixture over the mirror, spreading a thin mist over the whole mirror.
Wipe off the mirror using a lint-free microfiber cloth. Paper towels work well, too, but the lint-free cloth won't leave behind the paper towel specs that are often an issue.
