Ah, nose art. Or as we call them in our family: Snot Dots
If you have pets then you are most definitely familiar with the streaks and smears of slobber your pet’s noses can leave behind on your windows and glass doors.
Unlike regular grease and grime, the icky residue your pet’s leave behind is really just a mixture of saliva and mucous (aka – snot). It is sticky, slimy and just plain hard to get rid of. Gross, right?
Luckily, getting your windows and glass back to a sparkly shine is not as hard as you think. Here are a few helpful suggestions to get your windows slobber free!
Clean your windows as soon as possible. Not always the most practical advice since chances are the moment you put the rag away your pet will be back at the glass. But the longer you leave the saliva and slobber on the window, the hard it will be to remove.
Use a solution of equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle. The vinegar helps cut through the snot and will remove any stains left behind
Dip a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser into hot water. Wring out the excess and scrub your pet’s nose art off the window. Then use the vinegar/water mixture to polish your windows back to a brilliant shine
Try Goo-Gone! This handy cleaner is designed to eliminate sticky messes and can help remove the thick, stubborn slobber your dog leaves behind. Be sure to rinse the window with warm water. Then finish up with the vinegar and water mixture.
Using a rag, wipe your window with Pine Sol. Allow the cleaner to sit for a few minutes to help penetrate the gunky goo. Rinse off with warm water and finish up with the vinegar and water mixture for a streak free shine.

Coke, and/or hot black coffee works too.
Oh interesting – thanks for the tip, Karin!
Does Coke really remove dog slobber of car windows?
I tried the pine Sol ,but the vinager worked so much faster and less elbow power.
Good to know – we’re all looking for an easier method! Thanks for your comment.
