It would likely work somewhat, but it will definitely have a large loss in sensitivity.  The sensors send infrared light up, and look for reflections back.  If it’s dark enough to look mirror-like to your eyes, it’s likely passing less than 1% of the light through, and there are two passes through it.   Obviously, you’d have to try the specific material to see how well, if at all, it would work.
