Bath Mirror came loose, How to remove the Glue.......

2001 Adventurer 32v.

There are wall mirrors on each side of the vanity in the bath.
One mirror has come loose and we had to gently remove it from the wall.
(It was just about ready to completely fall off!!!)

It was held on the wall by three vertical strips of adhesive.
The adhesive is still on the wall....SO,
does anyone have any ideas how to remove the glue/adhesive from the wall???

I tried a hair dryer to soften the adhesive and was able to remove some of it but there is still a pretty good amount still on the wall.

Not sure if a Goo-Gone or any other type of solvent would be agreeable with the wallpaper ... or not.

I suspect that I may be reinstalling the mirror BUT with using the external "mirror clips" that are available in the hardware section.

SO, please advise if you know of a way to remove this 'glue' from the wall.

Thanks for the responses.

You might try a paint thinner solvent. I would find new mirror attachment strips and use clips as well. Safe travels!

After some consideration, here is where I am now:

Checked the other bath mirror and the very large mirror in the dinette.
The dinette mirror has 'mirror clips' on the top and bottom that helps to secure it to the wall.
I expect that this adds a little more 'Safety' to the installation.
The other bath mirror has no clips.

So, instead of trying to figure out how to remove the remaining adhesive strips from the bath wall, I plan to lay a bead of silicon adhesive to each strip (Winnebago Customer Service recommended) , AND use 'mirror clips' on the top and bottom of the mirror for additional safety.

In addition, i will also apply mirror clips to the other bath mirror for added safety. (AND to match the other mirror).

I have to do a little shopping to get a pack of clips that will fit my mirrors.

Just made a rather difficult job into a very manageable one.

I will advise how things went when I've finished the job.

Seems as you found your fix, but just to expand on the removal of any type of adhesive on the walls.....
we removed the wallpaper center border around the kitchen sink counter which left the adhesive behind. Tried Go Gone with slow but good results. A friend suggested spray Goof Off as a better product. Tried that. It took the ink/coloring out of the wallboard and left a plain white color base.
Beings as yours s same yr as mine, probably the same wall board.
Test in an area that will never be seen
