Stained glass windows are beautiful pieces of artwork admired by most people, yet when paint gets smeared or splattered on glass when it should not be there it is more of an eyesore than a masterpiece. My last experience with painting a room I ended up with just that—a paint splattered widow that I did not seem to notice until it was too late. The roller had thrown small dots of green paint all over the window as I pushed it up the wall and pulled it back.
Small dots are not very noticeable and quite easy to remove, but what do you do when the paint covers a large area of glass or maybe someone was careless while painting a window and it goes straight from the side of the window onto the glass. These problems can actually be taken care of in the same manner I took care of mine.
This method should work on most water-based paints like latex and acrylic, it will not work for oil based paint. For removing oil paints you will need turpentine or paint thinner instead of water and a lot of paper towels to wipe off the paint as you go so that it does not get on anything else. Whether you are cleaning small spots on a window or a large spill on a glass table take your time and be careful not to damage your glass, after all once you get the paint off you do not want to have to look at a bunch of scratches.
