    Hi, I would suggest you ask a Glass Shop as they may have already sorted this problem before. My only thoughts would be to use a scraper or acid, but both would damage the clear glass.

  • It depends on how the design was applied. If it's a sticker, it may come off with a razor blade. If it's etched, it's permanent.

    See if you can scrape it off with a single edged razor blade. Etchings are permanent and you may want to replace the glass.

    Most designs can be removed from glass, If not etched in, by applying a small amount of any type of oil. Vegetable oil or coconut oil will work, then scrape gently using a razor blade on the side of the glass where the designs are located. Wash well with a degreasing cleaner and rinse.

    Hi! It depends on how it's been applied. A razor blade scraper will quickly show you if it can be removed. Good luck!

    Most designs are actually part of the glass so your best bet is to have another piece cut and replace it. You could take it in and have it looked at in a glass shop to make sure. If it can't be removed, you can get a new piece cut. If that isn't an option, add a cling film to it and change the appearance.

    A picture of this would be helpful.

  • I think you'll probably need to have new glass cut, unless as others have said, it's a decal that can be scraped off.
