Use a glass marker. I’m pretty sure that you can get them at Michaels.

I bought window paint markers at Hobby lobby. They are made specifically for this and they came off very easily with window cleaner.

I just want to give you a warning about this, it’s awful! When you write on the windows, it’s ridiculously hard to get off. When I bought my car, it had writing all over the windows. I resorted to scraping it off with a razor blade because I couldn’t get anything else to work. Still to this day, nearly a year later, when it rains, you can read FOR SALE CALL 555-555-5555. My husband and I hid our cars on the wedding day so we could avoid this stuff. There may be a better product, but most of the stuff I’ve seen/ used is pretty bad.

You can just use a bar of white soap.  It doesn’t do any damage and washes off with water!

Back in the day, we used to use liquid shoe polish w/the built-in applicator for caravans to high school football games . You can find it at the grocery store or Wal-Mart and it comes right off with some Windex.

Glass chalk (www.glasschalk.com) is THE BEST. Comes in ALL sorts of colors! We used it to write on the school windows during Spirt Week (woo, Cheerleaders! LOL)

It washes off fairly easy too! No scraping or any of that. Just some windex, paper towel, and a little elbow grease (depending on how thick you put it on).


Tip: Don’t press TOO hard on the glass you are writing on, it makes the writing appear thin and streaky. Apply an even pressure. Also, since what you are writing on is, I’m assuming, vertical, you’ll have to hold the glass chalk tip-down a few times during the process to re-moisten the sponge tip. (kind of like when you are writing with an ink pen on a piece of paper attached to the wall and it starts to lose it’s inkiness) 

You’ll get a nice, even, print. 🙂

I second the glass chalk, which we got at Home Depot next to the "For Sale" signs to sell Mr. Lovebird’s car. Comes of easy enough…
