Painting my wooden window frames last week and gloss was dripping
everywhere. "No problem" I thought at the time, I can scrape it off the
glass with a blade.
This worked for my windows, but when I was standing baclk to admire my work,
I noticed that some paint had splattered onto our neighbour's window...
They hve double glazing and I suspect it has some kin of film or coating on
it as the glass doesn't look quit as clear as my old fashioned single glazed
Any idea what I shpuld remove it with? Fortunately they are away at the
moment so I have a little bi of time to spare to get the best solution. Not
sure if I should be putting a blade to them!
Could be self-cleaning glass, which has what looks like a film and also a
slight blue tinge. If so, scraping will wreck it. The only non-scraping
solution I can think of is paint stripper but I don't know whether that will
damage the film.
To test for self-cleaning glass, throw a cup of water over it and compare
same with ordinary glass. If self-cleaning the water runs off differently,
like a complete sheet, and doesn't leave droplets as with ordinary glass. I
don't know whether the self-cleaning process applies to dried on paint.
