The Right Tools
You will need all of the correct tools before you can safely remove paint from your windows. There are scrapers that are designed specifically to remove paint from glass. If obtaining this particular tool isn’t feasible, a razor is often sufficient for paint removal. Ensure that the razor is new and sharp, because a dull razor may lead to scratching. You will also need to have some form of lubricant to protect the glass. This can be a homemade solution or some kind of glass cleaner.
The absolute first thing you need to do is lubricate the window. Failure to do so will likely result in the paint removal process scratching the window. After that, you will need to take the razor and push the blade towards the frame. Refrain from pressing it into the gasket to prevent it from causing damage to the seals of the window. Raise the razor after each pass, rather than dragging it back and forth.
