    I recently repainted my window frames but, like an idiot, I left the masking tape on the window too long (we're talking days here) and when I tried to take it off most of it stayed on the window. I know there's no easy way to get it off but does anyone have any tips on what I can do to get it off? Hot, soapy water and scraping barely touches it.

    i would use a type of scraper that has a razor blade in it as its very sharp you could try gently using a hair dryer to warm up the paper then it should loosen the glue any glue left will come off with turps on a wrag
    ive done it myself so your not the foirst i left mine on for 2 months once but it did come off
