Mirrors on pictures

Does anybody know how to take the pictures of a room that has a mirror or multiple mirrors in order to create an spherical image or panorama without actually the tripod and camera showing in the resulting image. As an example, lets say a master batchroom with mirrors or even the glass of the shower area and you are taking the pictures rotating your pano head. How do you avoit having the tripod showing in the pictures? I hope you can give me direction on this. Thanks!

Self timer so your not in the shot.

Strategic positioning and cloning and healing in Photoshop.

In Terminator 2 in one scene they used Linda Hamilton's twin sister Leslie for the mirror shot (not an actual mirror).

You can eliminate almost all of the tripod by taking two pictures one at 0 degrees, then rotate your camera 180 and take the second pic (of course for this you must have a lens that takes a picture with at least 180 degrees of viewable area) by doing this youve eliminated most of your tripod. After you create your panorama, cube it and then edit the rest in photoshop... simple as that.
