Perhaps you've moved into an old house and the window frames have been painted and repainted many times, leaving paint marks on the glass. Or perhaps you've taken an afternoon to paint your window frames without taking the time to properly tape around the glass, leaving overspray or brush marks on the glass. Whatever your reason for needing to remove paint from windows, the following instructions can help. You'll need dishwashing liquid, water, a bucket, a six-inch razor blade, clean rags, a squeegee, and a Dobie Scrotch-Brite cleaning pad, or similar pad that won't scratch when scouring. Here's how to remove paint from windows:
You can allow the windowpane to air dry, or you may choose to use old newspapers to dry away the remaining water. If you need to remove old paint from a window frame, use a putty knife and paint scraper to scrape away the paint, taking care not to mar the surface of the wood or aluminum window frame. Clean gently with a clean rag and your cleaning solution, and allow to air dry.
