The usual line is: Unless it's REALLY dirty leave it, but if you want to do it there are lots of resources here

Oh! I thought you meant... :insects1:

I/m really not comfortable with using Isoprop on coated surfaces, or anything that has plastic near it. Doesn't the manufacturer give cleaning instructions? I cleaned my mirror once with a few drops of dish detergent in a lot of water, and ran it under the tap for a while to wash it all off. Used a cotton ball to wipe it. The mirror survived in fine shape. I needed an IPA, though.
