This TikTok hack for cleaning your giant bathroom vanity mirror will have you saying, “why didn’t I think of that?” TikTok user Mai Zimmy (@MaiZimmy) shared her favorite way to clean her bathroom mirror, and you’re never going to look back.

“All you need is the Swiffer mop, the glass cleaner of your choice, and a microfiber polishing cloth,” Mai says in her video. First, you spray your mirror as usual. But instead of wiping with paper towels or a cleaning cloth, you cover your Swiffer head with the microfiber cloth (using the four-corner grabbers to hold it in place) and then you go at your mirror just like a professional window cleaner.

“Great idea for a short person,” one commenter wrote. Another added, “37 weeks and 5 days pregnant, this is so helpful so I don’t have to try and climb on the counters.”

And others were adding even more helpful tips. “The best glass cleaner is in the automotive section,” one person wrote. “I like the can, no foam, no drips.” And another TikTok user said that using plain water has worked great for them — “no streaks,” they said.

This hack is awesome for bathroom mirrors, but it can also be used to clean your sliding doors, hard-to-reach paneless windows, and even your car. “This gives me an idea for the back window in my car,” one person wrote in the comments. No more having to contort yourself to get that back panel clean from the inside!

Over 103,000 TikTok users gave Mai’s video a like and it looks like we’re all feeling a bit more enlightened.
