I’ve got 25 of these locations, 18"by 48" mirrors. They all have to be nose to glass 2x a year maybe quarterly. Which means from a step ladder and shop vac the ledge above. Where would you be on price. Per pane? I’m thinking like 5 bucks, for some reason, mirrors seem to be way harder to get right over Windows.
Edit: pics…

Mirrors show blemished cleaning way more than windows do; that whole reflection thing.
So vacuum top edges, probably best to Sprayway, squeegee, towel detail the mirrors…Might bump a wee bit more than $5?

I clean close to 60 mirror surfaces per week and I spray them with 3M Glass Cleaner, wipe with applicator then squeegee. That product builds an anti/fogging seal with repeated applications, maybe best to apply heavy the first time.

I think mirrors are easier to clean than Windows due to no delayed seepage from seals and minimal frame wiping.

Thanks for the quick replies guys as always.

This. I wish. These are like 30 40 years old and have a top trim piece of polished stainless that has a gap. And it does do the prolonged seepage thing. Nightmare compared to Windows. Is sprayway available retail? I don’t have time to wait on shipping.

Sprayaway is on the shelf at Home Depot and Lowes. They also carry a couple other foaming glass cleaners. Not sure if there is much difference in any of them.

Sprayway is at Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, even Publix Grocery and Dollar General carry it.
I like it for mirrors because it is a foaming cleaner and greatly reduces the risk of getting moisture into the edge of the mirror and behind the glass where liquid can corrode.

I just use my normal solution and have never had problems.

Forgot to mention they all have spots of overspray on them. Might mention that it took 2 hrs and 45 minutes for 11 pieces.

I get them at Costco. 3 pack of Sprayway for $8-9.

Enough said. Thanks but no. For anyone interested, I ended up invoicing at $5. per. I get a lot of work from these folks and I’ll take a fair price for all of the work instead of scaring them off.


Work solid, and charge HOURLY, particularly when a manager is in house. If they become regulars, charge the median… this will become the ‘per clean’ price.

I wasn’t implying you should use it on this job. Just replying to where you can get it at a cheaper price and not have to wait on shipping.

wait i just read an earlier post from you that said you found the 3m costly and not that effective. have you changed your mind or what’s up? i have some on hand but stopped using it with the unger pads i got.

I have been using 3M Glass Cleaner on my bathroom mirrors every day since that post and have observed the anti-fogging after I shower. I will keep testing at the buildings I clean then post findings in a couple of weeks. @cactus27

@HBM so right now you spray, scrub with t bar and squeegee?
if you continue using it you should check out the concentrate version $50 for 42 gallons.

that is the best way, prices should always be “fair” in any "good business deal big or small both should be happy.

Where can I get this? All I found so far was the 12 pack on Amazon?
