The best way to remove glue from a mirror is with acetone. For this method, put some acetone onto a paper towel and then rub it on the glue until it dissolves and rubs off. After that, you can use any glass cleaner to clean the mirror properly. You can use any nail polish remover you have lying around your house, but if you need to buy new acetone, we recommend Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover. Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover is pure acetone and will be able to get the job done better than most other nail polish removers.

How to Remove Glue from a Mirror with Vinegar

If you prefer not to use solvents to remove glue from a mirror, then white vinegar is an excellent replacement. We recommend using Lucy’s Natural Distilled White Vinegar for its strength and purity. Removing glue from a mirror with white vinegar works best for tape residue, and to use it, you will need to rub it into the glue before scraping it up. When all the glue is gone, you can clean the glass normally.

After that, you can clean the mirror like normal.
