In its simplest form, a window scraper is just an old-fashioned brush with bristles that can be used to clean windows. However there are many types of these tools on the market today and you should look for one designed specifically for use against glass if possible because regular household sponges may scratch or damage it when rubbing up against your panes too aggressively while trying remove pesky sellotape residue from them!
The other tools we have listed above are meant for cleaning the windows as a whole. After you’ve completed the task of removing sellotape marks from glass, give your window an overall thorough clean with soap and warm water to remove any old glue or dirt that may be left on it after use by previous tenants who might not have respected this property’s appearance in its original state when new owners moved-in!

How to Remove Sellotape Marks From Windows with a Chemical Solvent.
Window cleaning solutions are many and the options for getting your windows clear can be overwhelming. You should not only consider water-based products, but also chemical solvents like ammonia or alcohols to strip away any buildup on the outside of each glass pane before wiping down with them as well!
Expensive? Maybe – unless you want dirt cheap window appearance that will last one summer at best (or maybe longer if they’re inside).
The types of products that you can try:
Products that contain petroleum – mineral spirits, liquid naphtha, and paint thinning agents;
Isopropyl or a shot of strong alcohol;
Acetone or just plain nail polish remover;
Degreasing products with d-Limonene;
Penetrating oils such as WD-40;
Store bought furniture polish – the aerosol type.
Here is how to properly use chemical solvents to get rid of the sticky substances:
Fill the bucket with lukewarm water. Add some cleaning detergent for later use, then leave it to soak while you do other tasks around your home or office space!
Pro-Tip: Save yourself time by making sure that all surfaces are free of dirt beforehand so they don’t get stuck in places where there is no access anymore; this will reduce repeated scrubbing sessions significantly because anything attached can be pulled off easily once cleaned thoroughly using forceps (a tool used specifically during dental hygiene).
Apply the chemical solvent of your choice.
It’s always a good idea to wear protective gloves when in contact with chemical solvents. Spray it directly onto the residue or apply with an old cotton cloth dipped into your product of choice- this will help you avoid any harsh chemicals getting on its delicate fabric surfaces, which can cause permanent damage if not cleaned properly!
Use the scraper.
Gently scrape what is left from the sellotape. Do this very carefully, otherwise you may scratch your window! Scrape until there are no more marks and if needed apply some more solvent to remove all residue of glue on its surface quickly before drying with a cloth or paper towel
-or anything that will get rid off those pesky drips without scratching surfaces like vinyl siding (though we don’t recommend doing this).
Wash the window.
Here at the office, we’re all about keeping things clean and neat. So when one of our employees came in with dirty windows that needed scrubbing – there was no other option but for them to get wet! You see, if you have hard water or mineral buildup on your panes than soap can’t do much more than make it slippery again; however these types are easy enough to remove when thoroughly cleaned regularly (every two weeks). If not? Well let me tell ya from personal experience…you’ll never want ‘ole Mr Clean’s Window Washing Machine ever again once someone takes their first glance outside upon seeing what he/she has done.”
Dry the window frames.
If you’re in a hurry and want to dry your window quickly, use the tissues. If not then let it sit without wiping because that usually leaves smudges on windows which can be hard or impossible to get off later!
Use paint thinner to remove the residue
Strong, huh? Well it’s stronger than plain old sellotape. You can apply this directly on the sticky glue and wait for a couple minutes before wiping away any mushy residue with something like cloth or paper towels (or your expensive clothes as well!). As an added bonus…it smells really good!
Apply nail polish remover to erase the marks
With all of these dissolving properties, it’s no wonder that nail polish remover has such a strong smell! Pour some into your clean cloth and wipe away the glue. If at first you don’t succeed try razor blade – just make sure to use an unused one because like paint thinner this stuff stinks really bad (literally).
How to Remove Sellotape Using Household Items
If you don’t fancy the idea of going through a chemical process to clean your windows, there are a few DIY solutions that can do the trick. Some people use dish soap and brightener as an alternative!
Place the gummy stuff against a flat surface, preferably one not containing an object you don’t want to melt. Hold it there for about 45 seconds while using your hairdryer on high heat until all signs of glue have disappeared and then remove any residue left behind by wiping down with wetted wipes or rinsing off in some water if necessary before letting air dry- this should do away with most adhesive substances!
Soak the tape away with a little help from Mother Nature. Boiling water and heat is what you need to remove any sticky residue, so put some in your sink first! Let it sit for about half an hour before wiping off all traces of glue or adding soap depending on how dirty it got because that will soften anything up really good between washes eventually anyways 🙂
Get rid of duct tape with cooking oil, we hear you say? Yeah it sounds downright bonkers and we know because we’ve tried. But just keep reading to find out why this crazy idea works! Duct tape sticks too well for its own good – unless there’s a way to get at those pesky little hairs under the surface that have been gently soothing us since grade school glue-time (so not fun). Well now our prayers have been answered: Put some olive/canola/etc., whatever suits your fancy in between two pieces then set on kitchen table until needed; leave overnight if need be but don
