This article shows that cleaning mirrors and glass surfaces is not difficult. You just need to know how to go about it. The described procedures can be applied to both glass and mirrors.

Mirrors and window panes are a magnet for dirt, even if you often clean them. What’s more, no matter how hard we try, cleaning does not always bring satisfying results. The glass is never completely clean. There are always stains or streaks. That’s why you should use the right materials. Yes, a cloth with water does not guarantee a mirror free of dirt. Consider whether a regular cloth or paper towel is suitable for cleaning window panes, glass furniture, shower cubicles or mirrors? The answer is no, because it involves leaving streaks that will later be difficult to remove. That’s why you need a microfiber cloth, squeegee for water or chamois.

Let’s go further to find reliable ways to clean mirrors and glass surfaces. You can easily do it on your own.
