    I guess we all have a method. I just used water & white vinegar for mirrors & my windows & this works fine. O f course I got this tip from my Mom & she was right, it cleans it well. Thanks 4 sharing your idea. I always like other options I can use.

    You bet! My bathroom mirrors are horrible. I have tried straight alcohol on them, vinegar, but haven’t tried both together. Thank you! I cannot get streak-free mirrors, so I will try anything!!!
