Some stoner clearly painted here before and painted most of the windows on his mission.
Would turpentine or white spirits remove his work?

Baby wipes got a lot of my plaster off. Not sure about paint.

Snowballs Was fumbling for the words to describe exactly this.
By what wizardry do you get that image to appear?

MyOriginal this is the bees knees, available at a buidets merchants near you. Also useful for tidying up a paint edge, gigiving a nice clean line on edge of glass.

Snowballs seriously, how?

Builders merchants, giving a nice edge

Scraper and a scrub.

Or you can just (carefully) use a blade taken out of a craft / Stanley knife.

Sorry, posted too soon. I googled window scraper, found an image, saved it and uploaded as an attachment by clicking on the paper clip below this box.

You can get windowscrapers like the one in the pp at b&q/homebase etc too. They really are good.

the window isn't sheer - it's sort of little raised squares. will try a scraper.
