Q:

How can I clean a cloudy mirror?

A:

Clean a cloudy mirror with a mixture of rubbing alcohol, ammonia and liquid detergent. A cloudy mirror can also be cleaned with a soft cloth and a thin layer of shaving foam.

  1. Gather the cleaning materials

    Measure out half a cup of rubbing alcohol, 2 tablespoons of ammonia and 1/4 teaspoon of liquid detergent. Pour these in a spray bottle or a container. Crumple a sheet of newspaper, to use for cleaning the mirror or use a soft, lint-free cloth.

  2. Apply the cleaning solution

    Spray the cleaning solution on the cloth or dip the cloth in the cleaning solution. Wring the cloth to remove excess moisture. For large-sized mirrors, apply the solution directly on the surface of the mirror. Alternatively, a thin layer of shaving foam can be applied to the surface of the mirror to clean it.

  3. Clean the surface

    Use a soft cloth or a crumpled newspaper to rub the mirror in a circular motion. Then clean the mirror using vertical strokes. Follow by using horizontal strokes to clean the surface. Continue to rub the surface until it is clean.

  4. Buff the mirror

    Use a soft toothbrush or a cotton swab to remove grime from the corners of the mirror. Remove residual moisture from the surface of the mirror with a dry cloth or a newspaper.
