Using the wrong tools can result in increased smudging and extra work! Use these tools for sparkling clean mirrors and windows to brighten up your home.

Step Three: Cleaning Method

As important as the tools are to cleaning your mirrors and windows, the end results will be better with the right technique!



  1. Dampen your cloth with your cleaning solution
  2. Start from the top left corner and rub clean each bit of dirt one by one
  3. After the stuck on bits of dirt have been wiped away, clean the entire mirror/window using a zig-zag stroke
  4. Using a microfibre cloth to clean your mirrors and windows usually dries it whilst cleaning, if you want to give it an extra dry, use a newspaper as this also helps to polish it
