How do I remove shoe polish from my car window?

I used shoe polish to write a congratulatory message on my car for my son's graduation—and I just realized that it might damage the car. How do I remove shoe polish from the window without any issues?

Big congratulations to your son—and no worries! The best way to get rid of shoe polish on your car window is to use an aerosol glass cleaner.
Simply spray the glass cleaner on the window, let it soak in, and then use a razor blade at a 45-degree angle to scrape away the polish without damaging the glass.
Make sure to take care when doing this, as your extended warranty likely won’t cover scratches on side or rear windows!
If you want to make sure your car stays in good shape no matter what, you may also want to review your insurance policy. To easily make sure you’re getting the best deal on the coverage you need, check out the Jerry app! We’ll get you customized quotes from top insurers in seconds, so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you.
Best of luck with the repairs—and congrats again to your son!
