    What is the object? What is it made out of?

    Acetone, better know as finger nail polish remover. Wet the offending thing real well with the acetone. Let it soften up real well then scrape off as much as you can. I would use a sharp, thin bladed knife. Be careful. Don't slip and cut yourself. Apply more acetone and repeat till it is all gone. Wash any residual acetone off mirror. Do not smoke while using acetone. It is highly flammable.

      Yes she’s right I’ve been there done it and it worked perfect

  • Using acetone and a qtip, begin working away at the glue

    Tape cotton balls all around the object. Keep saturated with acetone - maybe an hour, maybe longer. Eventually it will soften enough to scrape off with a razor blade. Use acetone to remove any debris.

    THEY make a SUPER GLUE REMOVER. It comes in a tube like super glue. Take the tube & squirt some on the top of the item & let it run down behind it. Wait a bit & with a sharp knife point, try & pry it off. If it doesn't come off right away, let the remover sit on it a bit longer & try again. When removed, clean your mirror (that spot where it was) with the remover. Once that's done, you can clean your whole mirror with some window cleaner. I believe they originally made this product for people who glued their fingers together. Good Luck

    Not all finger nail polish remover contains acetone. Check the labels if this is what you are looking for.
