On my house I have some double pane glass on a couple doors and the side-lights at my front door. There is an unpainted yellow (ugly) plastic grill on each (to simulate separate panes). What do you use to clean that stuff and what type of paint do you use on them?

Hey Rocky
Mr clean has these things called cleaning erasers try those I’ve had good luck with them. Krylon makes some spray paint in rattle cans that’s made just for plastic.

A small angled sash brush, a steady hand, and time. I have seen people tape the glass first and then paint. If you get paint on the glass, after the paint has dried but not hardened, use a one sided razor blade to gently scrape the paint off the glass.

I am just using a glass cleaner and a wiper like the one we use in car glass shields.
