Learn how to easily get spray paint off of glass

This quick and easy post came about when we were updating our fireplace cover and painting our mantel. My husband decided to cover the glass with paper towels when spraying the brass on our cover…

I know…

You would think we have done enough paint DIY projects to know that the SPRAY PAINT WOULD LEAK THROUGH THE PAPER TOWELS. However, we needed a quick and easy way to get the silver spray paint off the glass.

As you can see, we had a nice little line of spray paint in the middle of our fireplace cover that needed to be removed. If you are looking for more spray paint projects, be sure to check out this list of ways to use spray paint.

Simple steps to remove spray paint

  1. First, spray the glass with Windex or natural glass cleaner of your choice.

2. Next, take a small razor blade and hold it at a 45-degree angle. BE CAREFUL! You do not want to scrape the glass. Make sure that the glass is always wet when using the blade. As you can see in our picture, there is a lot of Windex on the glass cover.

3. Wipe areas with a paper towel and you should be all set!
