Mirror, Mirror, Go Away
To get rid of the mirror tiles that covered a wall in our kitchen, I first covered them entirely with sections of carpet protector, a thick, adhesive-backed plastic that comes on a roll. Then I went at the tiles with a hammer, breaking them into small pieces. When I peeled off the sticky protector, most of the slivers and shards came with it. I just rolled up the plastic with the shattered tiles inside and dropped it in the trash. The remaining bits that stuck to the wall popped off with a putty knife. For both steps of the process, I made sure to wear safety goggles, leather gloves, long sleeves, long pants, and work boots.
