How do I clean the rearview mirror?

A dirty rearview mirror is not only a nuisance to drivers, but a potential hazard. Do not spray any chemicals or glass cleaner directly onto the mirror. Instead, spray a gentle glass or household cleaner onto a soft, clean, damp cloth. The water on the cloth will dilute the cleaner and protect your rearview mirror from scratching or wearing.
