Default Cleaning plaster off of metal

The plaster guy decided to splat it all over everything, during my cleaning spree i found that i got the plaster off of the metal on the bathroom mirror but it has seemed to leave a stain.

Does anyone have any ides what i can do to get this off? I tried every cleaning solution along with nail polish remover. Thanks

No, for the life of me I couldn't find anything to clean it. I just switched the side the door swings from to hide it

Hydrofluoric acid is used in cement and plaster to add better bonding, it is also used to etch glass. So there likely isn't a fix for it.
You might try polishing out. http://home.howstuffworks.com/home-improvement/repair/how-to-remove-scratches-from-glass.htm
