One of the easiest and most universal ways to get glue off glass is with alcohol. The best alcohol for the job is Vaxxen Labs Isopropyl Alcohol 99% because of how pure the alcohol is. To get glue off glass with alcohol, simply soal the glue in Vaxxen Labs Isopropyl Alcohol 99% for at least half an hour and up to an hour to give the alcohol time to soften. Once the alcohol has softened the glue, you can rub the glue away with a rag and clean the glass as needed.

How to Remove Glue from Glass with Acetone

If you prefer not to use alcohol, it’s no problem at all; you can easily swap alcohol for acetone and get the same result. The process for removing glue from glass is the same as with alcohol; nothing changes except the solvent being used. You can use any nail polish remover you have in your house already. Still, suppose you are looking to buy acetone. In that case, we recommend you get Super Nail Pure Acetone Polish Remover because it is 100% pure acetone and doesn’t contain any fragrances or other additional ingredients many nail polish removers use in their products so that it will give you the best and cleanest result.

How to Remove Glue from Glass with Spray Lubricant

If you need something that is a bit more heavy-duty to get glue off of glass, then you can use a spray lubricant like WD-40.

Let WD-40 sit on the glue for a bit to let it soften, and once it is softened, you can scrape off the glue. WD-40 will likely work faster than alcohol or acetone.
