Default glass cleaning

Need some suggestions guys! We removed wallpaper in a bathroom. We used diff. After finishing we have a residue on the mirrors that won't go away. When first cleaned the glass looks fine. When it drys the streaks/runs are back. Nothing can be felt on the glass like glue residue that could be scraped off. I've tried glass cleaners and it just keeps coming back. We have removed alot of wallpaper and Ive never experienced this before. I was thinkin about trying krud kutter or something along that line on Monday. Any suggestions?

Did the solution run behind the mirror, damaging the foil backing?

Not sure, that's on my list of things to check. It just seems weird that when you get the glass wet it looks fine

Try vinegar. If that does not work try a sample spot of Barkeepers Friend (be very, very careful if you use this as it can scratch). Always need to be extra cautious around glass, most folks don't realize that its permiable and once something penetrates it is very unforgiving.

Were the mirrors attached to the wall?
I've not run into what you are describing, but I always remove wall mounted mirrors for this type of project

Yes mirrors are glued. I am going to try a green scotch pad and Krud Kutter. I have a feeling its the backing though. I'll keep you posted!

I agree with trying the steel wool. We use it everyday on window cleaning jobs.

Use some Bob-Ami. The Scotch Brite will scratch. I have never tried the steel wool.

If that doesn't work try just Scotch; Glen Levitt works wonders.
