    Just thought I would check how you all take concrete off the windows on a builders clean.

    At the moment we use sticky stuff remover on the whole window to help soften the concrete and then lightly use a scraper to try and not scratch the glass.

    acid

    if your using a scraper keep the area as wet (lubricated) as possible to avoid scratches.

    i usually rest the wfp up against the top of the glass and let the water sheet down the glass when scraping to prevent scratching

    acid on a window would have to make sure you don't get it on the frames

    If you dilute acid. Remember to poor the acid into water. And not the other way round.

    Never thought of that. Do you put it onto a cloth and hold it against the concrete?
