You’ll need:
A 1 gallon bucket
Ammonia (mine came from Dollar Tree)
1 Table spoon
Old cotton-shirt
Squeegee (mine came from IKEA)

Put 2 tablespoons of Ammonia into the 1 gallon bucket bucket.

Fill the 1 gallon bucket with water all the way up.
(If you need less – then 1 tablespoon Ammonia with 1/2 bucket water).

The above and below pictures are of my bathroom mirror. I took a picture with the lights on and off trying to show how streaky the mirror was. My husband used Windex and a paper towels – this is what it left behind.
This mirror is big so cleaned 1/3 of it at a time.
Put your wash cloth in the bucket of solution and squeeze it out. Wash your mirror or window.
Use your squeegee to slide top to bottom.
Wipe the squeegee with the cotton shirt. Also wipe up the drips at the bottom of your mirror/window with the shirt as well.
Continue until all your mirror/windows are done.


It looks so much better and my arm isn’t exhausted from rubbing so hard.
It’s inexpensive and easy, hope you’ll give it a try too πŸ™‚

    Chas, does using the ammonia and water with cloth and squeegee help with preventing the spots that occur when my spouse brushes his teeth and shaves and leaves a daily mess on the bathroom mirror?
    Or maybe I should have said instead of preventing, but helping to re-clean the mirror? My hubby is a slob. I have to clean up after him like a 3 yr old, in all ways in all rooms ! P.S. I love your bathroom mirror lights, did you make those?

    1. Hi Linda, I’m so sorry and feel your pain. I don’t think it’ll prevent the mess from showing up. Here’s what I do for quick daily cleans – I fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and spray the mirror spots and wipe them up with a microfiber cloth that I can wash. That usually does the trick. Let me know if that helps you, or if you still have questions. As for the lights… we bought those online when we re-did our bathroom. I liked how they looked like ice πŸ™‚
