Removing lace window treatment with cornflour / cornstarch

Just a quick post to update you on how it went when I removed the lace window treatment with cornflour / cornstarch.

When it came to be time to move out, I sprayed the lace down with water and just pulled it away. The lace came away really easily but there was a lot of residue on the window. It took me a few tries to work out how to get it clean but what eventually worked best was a scrubby sponge and VERY HOT water (so hot you need rubber gloves). Vinegar also seemed promising but the hot water worked best.

    This is a great idea and I think it would work in a bathroom if you use spray sealer as the last layer making sure to seal every side and corner totally.

    Pinned the original post – nice to know it was easy-ish to remove. I would’ve used my steamer but then I’ve also removed 6 rooms worth of horrible wallpaper from the 70’s/80’s/90’s (lots of sanding required as well as steam). Fun times.
