Are Newspaper a Good Mirror and Glass Cleaning Tool?
You’ll hear it in a lot of places…the idea that newspaperscan be used to polish up a mirror or glass. You can recycle the paper and getyour glass clean at the same time. But does it work.
It does work, but it’s not usually the best option, andthere may be some serious drawbacks. Many people swear by this method, buthonestly, I’ve never been a huge fan. It works in a pinch, but I much preferother methods of cleaning glass and mirrors.
The truth is, that the newsprint ink can smear on the glass,and more especially on the frame of mirrors and windows. Newspaper doesn’t holdtogether very well, when wet. And given the opportunities to recycle newspaperthat we have, it seems to make more sense to repurpose the paper instead oftossing it into the trash after wiping down a mirror.
