Question answered by hollywoodmelody
Try in a corner of one of the walls (at the bottom). Take a hair dryer and put it on high and aim between the wall and the mirror. There may not seem as if there is a space but there is. Get it good and hot and take a screw driver to try a lift it up a little. Not to far to break but to see if it will move. Some builders use a product called Liquid Nails to put up those mirrors and then some use construction adhesive so it depends on that issue. When Liquid Nails becomes hot it tends to liquify and be more pliable. Construction adhesive tends to harden and needs to be actually broken into pieces, see what I mean about the difference?
You may end up having to break the mirror into big pieces that you can remove but always wear safety goggles and heavy duty gloves.

had to do exact same thing.Rent or buy a hand held glaziers(glass worker) suction tool.Starting at one of the top corners,attach the suction device 6" from the top and 6" in from the side.then place a small flat pry bar on the top edge 4" from the side.GENTLY pry the mirror out 1/8 to 1/4 inch.move suction over 6" and with pry bar centered above suction device,repeat.Continue across top of mirror.then go back to starting point and this time pry mirror away from wall approximately 3/4 to 1 ".Continue across top of mirror.Then move suction device down approx. 10 " and repeat.The mirror is attached to the wall with a silicone based adhesive and you are trying to break the bond.As you are prying the mirror,you will "feel" where the silicone spots are.Just work slow and gently.
What is the resolution (dpi) of a glass mirror?
If a smooth glass mirror were the size of say a 22" monitor, what would the reflective 2D resolution be? i.e. how small are the reflective particles in the glass?
Question answered by MT
Technically its not applicable however i see what you mean.
Perhaps the the number of photons that can fit of the surface of the mirror makes sense, the answer to this is probably infinite

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a plain mirror in the bathroom look more interesting?
I have two very large plain glass mirrors on my bathroom walls (builders standard issue for bathrooms here in FL). They have no casing or framing around them and are soooo ugly. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on how to make these look nicer without totally having to remove them?
Harold P has a good idea, can you please explain how to do this? Do you put it directly on the glass or wall or what? Sorry but I am clueless. Thanks
I want something thats going to make it look more upscale.

Go to an art or hobby store such as Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Ask if they have a glass frosting or glass etching kit. It'll contain decals with designs cut out of them, chemicals to put on, and some other accessories for doing it. When it's finished, it looks *really* nice.
What are some unique trait's or characteristics I can give an angel in my novel?
He is a evil and fallen angel. He has black eyes and wings, pale skin and has no reflection in water, glass, mirrors etc. I want him to have unique but appealing features unlike other angels. He has to be dark and mysterioius.
Question answered by ?
You should make him walk on water.
That would start some sweet and interesting controversy
What about instead of pale skin, he has no skin, just tissue thats left from being burned in hell. Still strong enough to move though...Fire ain't got nothing on his muscles ;)
What are some natural cleaning chemicals, and how do I use them?
I know baking soda and vinegar is one, but I don't know how you would mix it, or what to use it on? Also I need to clean a greasy stove, and glass mirrors and windows, but I don't want to use harsh chemicals.

I've heard of a few eco-friendly products that might do the job. Try this for the oven, Easy Off Fume Free Max. Also, Free & Clear makes a Natural Glass and Surface cleaner. Simple Green makes a degreaser that is supposed to work well too.
How long does raw bread, muffins, cinnamon rolls take to cook in a cardboard shoebox solar oven at 190-200 oF?
This is what I'm wanting to cook:
1 bread loaf
6 cinnamon rolls
My solar oven has 2 glass mirrors and 1 tampered glass sheet from an inkjet photocopier. However, it hasn't been temperature tested yet (due to cloudy and rainy days).
Please estimate the appropriate cooking time.
Question answered by dakinijones
Average shoebox cooking times for small bread items like rolls and muffins is a couple hours, half a day for a loaf.
How can I seal a pastel drawing on glass?
I drew a sketch on a glass mirror with Cray-Pas EXPRESSIONIST extra fine quality oil pastels. I can easily wipe it off the mirror, but I don't want to. Is there any way I could seal this, so the image wouldn't rub off?
(I cant really frame it because its on a framed mirror already.)
Question answered by jollioutcast
Cheapo way: Hairspray will fix it to the mirror without distorting it (like brushing it with something would.) If you scratch it with your fingernail it will flake off.
Nice way: Go to the craft store and get the clear epoxy resin mix that you can cast with. Mix it up and pour the mixture over the mirror up to the frame. Tap it gently to dislodge air bubbles. You could even embed something like a photo or flower petals and get a 3d effect.
