Recently moved into a home in Florida which had the rooms painted about a
year ago. The windows have a film on them to cut down on UV light. Problem
is that when one of the rooms was painted about a year ago, there is an area
about the size of a quarter of paint on the window.
Anyone have any suggestions on how I might remove the paint? (Initially I
was going to use a safety razor blade, but I am afraid it might damage the
film on the window.)
Have a great day, except you spammers

It depends on the type of paint used and the properties of the film. Goo
Gone or denatured alcohol will remove latex paint. I don't have a clue as
to what it might do to the film.
If an oil based paint was used scraping or replacing the film are the only
options I can think of.
Great solution. I often try to get off easy with solutions like that, but
the wife goes thru the roof when I even suggest things like that.
Glad to see I am not alone in devising labor-saving ideas.
You can also cover it up with a tiny decal. They are sold in the 5&10 as
decals for attaching to patio doors to make them visible and stop people
from walking through them. Quite attractive, flowers, butterflies etc. Self
