Apply steady pressure pulling the mirror away from the wall. The trick is to apply enough pressure so the tape will start to release, but not so much as to break the mirror. (unless you don't want to save the mirror, then pry with a wonder bar or the such.
Be Sure to wear goggles and gloves!
It may take several minutes for the tape to start to release. Also the warmer the tape the better, so if you can warm the room to 80 to 85 degrees for a couple of hours before you try would be good.

Hi jmonge413,

You can try a hairdryer on the mirror side and apply heat to it where the tape is on the other side. Or, you can try to get the heat directly behind the mirrors by holding the hairdryer along the edges of the mirrors. Just be CAREFUL you don't apply too much heat to the point where the mirrors crack/EXPLODE on you.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
