Removing Paint from Your Windows
How to Remove Paint from Windows?
Have you been remodeling your home or just giving it a fresh coat of paint? New looks are exciting! On the downside, paint can splatter on many surfaces when you are applying it to your walls, and glass is one of them.
Cleaning windows is already enough of a heavy chore —particularly if your home has a lot of windows of varying heights. But removing paint from them, that’s next-level hard. Out of the many things that could possibly stick to your windows, paint is, arguably, the hardest one to remove.
If you decide to take on this project by yourself, you’ll need some supplies:
- Dishwashing liquid
- Spray bottle
- Clean cloth, preferably cotton
- Utility knife or razor blade
- Glass Scraper
- Window Cleaner
- Drop Cloth
Steps to Remove the Paint
- Fill up the bucket with a mixture of water and dishwashing liquid to create suds.
- Soak your cleaning cloth in this solution.
- Get rid of any dirt or grime off your window surface by scrubbing it with the cloth and then rinsing the window.
- Pour some more sudsy solution on your window.
- Use your utility knife and scrape the paint at a 45 degree angle. While you do this, make sure your window remains wet, to avoid scratching the surface with the utility knife or razor blade. You can also use glass cleaner instead of suds, and then scrape off the paint.
- Grab a clean and dry cloth to wipe the window dry.
- Check your window to make sure the paint has been removed. If not, follow these instructions until you get rid of all those paint stains.
