Cleaning sticky residue from a mirror can be trying. This is a guide about cleaning sticky residue from a mirror.
I bought a large wall mirror and after removing the label there's a sticky residue that I can't take off. I tried alcohol and nail polish remover. Thanks
WD 40 works to get sticky off also.
You can heat the label with your hair dryer and then rub residue off with alcohol. I use it all the time.
Vegetable oil. Rub on, let it sit, scrape off. Clean with soap to remove oil.
You can try the antibacterial hand gel that evaporates. If that doesn't work a product called "Goof Off" will. You can find it at Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
Any idea how to remove scotch tape residue from a mirrored wall?

The cheapest way: Use cooking oil. Rub it on thick with a rag. Dab it really well. Let it set then use a clean cloth or plastic spoon to scrape it off. Then use some vinegar and water in a spray bottle just like Windex to clean off the oil. Good luck. Tammie
For adhesive on anything, use lighter fluid on a small piece of cotton or p. towel, then clean with dish soap or whatever. If it's stubborn, some commercial adhesive is really think & dense, just let a little fluid soak it for a bit, then use the cotton ball soaked with lighter fluid. Just use a very small piece of cotton or paper towel, cause the bigger it is, the more lighter fluid you need. If it gets coated with the adhesive, use a new piece. It works better than polish remover or anything else I've tried. Haven't found any adhesive that can't be removed with it, have done it for over 30 years.
Use hand sanitizer. The residue will come right off and the mirrors will sparkle. ~Janette~
I use just plain alcohol with a cotton ball or tissue to remove tape residue from many things it works well on scissors too.
How do I clean tape residue off mirrors? Tape was used on the mirrors in china cabinet. The tape was removed, but residue remains.
Use rubbing alcohol to remove the stickiness. I use the swabs. Works great!
Any kind of cooking oil will resolve the tape residue. I put some on a cotton ball or paper towel and rub it around and soon the gooey tape residue comes loose then wash as usual.
Try using a dryer sheet. It will clean the sticky gunk left by fabric softener in your washer. And I used it to clean gum stuck inside the drum of my dryer. It might work on your mirror. Worth a try!
