Objects in the mirror may be dirtier than they appear. Shine them up with this routine from realsimple.com:

Fixtures

1) Wipe down the towel racks, toilet-paper holder, hooks, and other fixtures. Wet a cloth with water, and squirt dish washing liquid onto it.

2) Work around wall mountings, if necessary. A wet toothbrush will do the job.

3) Dry with a clean cloth. This will prevent mineral deposits.
