Cleaning Bathroom Mirror

Use Paper Towels – Nothing Else!

  1. Spray glass cleaner on surface. Hold the cleaner 6″ away from surface. Hold the bottle near the wrist of your guide hand. Move the bottle left to right as you spray. You don’t need to spray every inch of the glass. Two or three squirts are enough.
  2. Get 2 or 3 paper towels. Unfold them so you can comfortably use your palm instead of your fingertips. Don’t ball up the towels!
  3. Start at an upper corner. Move from either left to right or right to left direction. Start at the top and work down. You can use your non-dominant hand as a marker (at the side of the mirror). After finishing cleaning horizontally, clean vertically left to right or right to left. This way the entire surface should be covered.
  4. After cleaning horizontally, turn over the wet side of the paper towels to the dry side or get some dry towels.

As you learn this method, you will be able to clean anything (windows, counter, doors etc.).

See the benefits of a pattern!
