How to Remove the Paper from Plexiglass

When we are planning to use plexiglass for the decoration of our house, then it is quite evident that the plexiglass comes attached with a paper at the back, and peeling off the paper is much tiresome. This happens because the paper remains firmly attached to the glass using string adhesives. So today we will suggest to you the manner on how to remove the paper from plexiglass, this will be much helpful for the beginners to learn.


There are many ways to detach paper from plexiglass, and all of them are easy to do and quite effective. We’ve narrowed it down to three methods that use only common household items. Here they are:

Hair-Drier Method

Our first method is based on using a hair drier. We know that the paper at the back of the plexiglass remains firmly attached to the glass, and when you try to pull it, there is an uneven attachment of the paper. For this reason, at first, we will use a hair drier. The hair drier will be blown all over the surface of the plexiglass.

Next, you have to wait for a minute; the hot air of the hair drier will soften the paper and the glass’s adhesive attachment. And then you can quickly start to peel off the paper from the back. You will observe that it has become much less attached to the glass and can easily be peeled off from the surface. In this manner, you can detach the paper from a glass.

Hair-Drier Method

Dowel Method

In this method, you use a hair drier and a dowel. The dowel will help you peel the paper off. You have to clean the back of the paper and then apply the hair drier all over the surface. When the paper starts to come off, you use the dowel and circle the paper round it. Then slowly move the dowel from one edge to another edge to get the paper off the glass.

Olive Oil Method

In this method, you will need tissue paper and olive oil. You have to soak the tissue paper properly in olive oil and then apply the tissue paper all over the paper. You have to encircle the whole paper and make sure to put more effort on three edges, and then you have to take the plexiglass and let it dry for at least five to six minutes. After this, you will take a razor or blade and peel it off from the edge of the glass. Thus the paper will be easily detached.
