Removing a Large Mirror Glued to the Wall

We have a large mirror on the wall in our bathroom. It is about 3 feet tall and 5 feet long. It is attached with glue or some kind of adhesive. Does anyone know how to remove it? Especially without having to break it? I want to put my stackable washer/dryer where one of the sinks is, and the mirror will be behind it if it can't be removed.

Hopefully you have sheetrock. The easiest way is to cut it out and replace the sheetrock. Your walls will have less damage and your mirror will remain intact.

If you can't pry if off with some tools, you'll need it removed professionally. Try these instructions for prying. Be safe:

Have you tried spraying vinegar or rubbing alcohol on the adhesive? Depending on what the adhesive is, either one works to break up some common glues.

Use a spray bottle if possible to spray behind the mirror. Be sure someone is holding the mirror so it doesn't fall.

Do not use this method if there is an electric outlet on the wall. You don't want to risk the outlet getting wet.

This is one job that will require at least 2 strong people as most likely that is a heavy mirror. There are several ways you can do this but some will depend on what type of wall it is adhered to and also if you wish to damage the wall??

If you Google your question you will find several YouTube videos that might help (I have not watched any so check them out for relevance).

I did find a couple of interesting sites that sound like what you are wanting to do might not be too difficult - dangerous maybe but hopefully you will think about safety before you start.
