  1. Hey Akanksha

    Just read your article about how to clean mirrors! Great stuff, loved the idea of using rubbing alcohol to get rid of toothpaste.

    BTW, do you use the same method on windows as well? I was just wondering since windows will have different kinds of debris on them.

    Anyways, just wanted to reach out and say hello. Keep up the great work!

    • Hello Jordan,
      Thank you for the comment and appreciation.

      Rubbing Alcohol is actually best for any kind of glass, even the window glasses. It is best to clean your windows afterward with the vinegar solution I mentioned in the post.

      Thanks for the support!!
