Cleaning Paint From Window Panes

Shannon Lush shows how to remove the paint from window panes.

1. Wipe the window panes with white spirits and use a razorblade to lift the paint (which should peel off reasonably easily).
2. If the windows have been painted in water-based paint, replace the white spirits with methylated spirits. Both these products are spirit based solvents which break down the molecules that hold paint together.
