Wary about using isopropyl alcohol on aluminium mirrors

I have a sense that isopropyl alcohol reacts with aluminium, so would be wary about using it for mirror cleaning. There is some chemistry here that I don't understand, but when I used it once I was convinced that it left streaks that did not dissolve in distilled water.

Would be interested to hear from a chemist on this.
