Labels should release from the glass cleanly and easily.

New Marvin windows and doors will bear a Marvin label. Labels and adhesive residue should be removed from glass as soon as possible after installation.

If a label does not release from the glass easily, use the methods described below to remove it.
  1. Soak the label thoroughly with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Rub the alcohol into the label with a gentle motion until the adhesive and label are removed.– OR –
  2. Soak the label thoroughly with acetone (nail polish remover) and peel the label off after a few minute

Remember:

If a label does not release from the glass easily, following these instructions can help you avoid a sticky situation

If a label does not release from the glass easily, following these instructions can help you avoid a sticky situation like the one above.

  • Do not remove labels when exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Cleaning agents must not come in contact with weatherstrip or finishes, as damage may result.
  • Use of razor blades or knives is not recommended on any coated glass such as Low E II. However, if paint or other construction residue cannot be removed from any non-coated glass surface with normal cleaning, a new 1″ razor blade may need to be used on small areas only! Scraping should be done in one direction only. Never scrape in a back and forth motion, this will only trap debris under the blade and permanently scratch the glass. 

WARNING: Do not use scrapers for cleaning glass. Glass scratched by a scraper is not covered under the Marvin Window and Door warranty.
