Julie sent in a question for the crowd: I recently moved into a lovely old New Orleans apartment. The bathroom has has a wonderful window that fills the room with soft, warm light, but as you can see, it was painted sloppily and needs some cleaning up. The glass is textured with a raised pattern that makes it impossible for me to scrape using a razor blade. Can anyone recommend an effective way to remove paint from a textured windowpane? I have included photos of the bathroom and a close up of the window. Thanks for your help, AT!
