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!

What's the cleaning agent to use in removing sticky residue from a mirror?
By Jackie from NY
Try rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't work, then use vegetable oil and then clean as usual. Hope this helps. (12/16/2009)
Lighter fluid will clean this off your mirror. The lighter fluid that you use in a Zippo lighter. (12/18/2009)
Eucalyptus oil will get anything sticky of any solid surface (labels of jars, etc.) (01/05/2010)
