Does anyone know of a good non-abrasive cleaning product that will remove dirt and hairspray build-up off vinyl floor tile in the bathroom?
Sunny, I have no idea whether or not this would be a good solution but, for the floor, think I would combine a very weak nail polish remover solution and vegetable oil, shake well, spray and wipe. Rinse and then do it again and check if it is doing the job...
No doubt, someone will be along soon to suggest a better solution and for the mirrors? A vinegar solution should work fine - be sure to rinse and wipe dry immediately....
Interesting idea, Idaho. Personally, I wouldn't use either of those two items on a floor. In particular, the veg. oil, combined with a b/r's moisture, could be very dangerous, IMHO.
Sunny, when I saw your post earlier, I immediately thought of a vinegar solution. (We're thinking alike there, Idaho!) For general cleaning, try a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar. That, combined with a little elbow grease for the dirt, should take care of it.
If you need something stronger (I doubt it, BTW), numerous recipes are also available for a version of vinegar windex. Typically, it's less vinegar plus 1/2 - 1 tsp. of liquid dishwashing soap, depending on the quantity desired. If you'd like one of those recipes, post back. Or, you can find tons of them and other info on the web.
Incidentally, the white vinegar's extremely cheap (by the gallon) at big box and warehouse-type stores.

LA's AWESOME is a great product, available at Dollar tree, Dollar General, WM, etc. Cheap and good.
Had a couple more thoughts about this, Sunny.
1/2 & 1/2 would be for your (current) big job. You'd probably need less vinegar for maintenance, going forward.
After cleaning, evenly mop floor with warm water to prevent streaks and open windows to air out.
My DD's would get it on the painted bathroom door, and the thing that took it off was a Magic Eraser. Obviously this was not a large build-up, but nonetheless it did the job!
I am pretty sure I cleaned it off with Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner. (Back when DD used it in her bathroom)
Most general cleaners (even shampoo) I think can clean it on vinyl flooring? Careful with the use of Mr Clean eraser if you have a gloss finish on your vinyl, as it is prone to dull/abrade some plastics!
I moved into a house once formerly occupied by a "big hair" woman; regular (blue) glass cleaner removed the (way)overspray. The main ingredient there is ammonia.
