I searched a bit but didn't see a good answer. What's the best way to get the glass panes cleaned off while they're out of the sashes? Mine have a residue of old paint around the edges, along w/ misc ...

Sure. I've been busy w/ work/family/life and haven't made much progress. My first 2 hand-stripped sashes are basically ready to glaze when I get the Hillman points in the mail and have time. I think I ...
