Window cleaning- deck stripper

I used a spray on stripper on my deck and got some spray on a window. It looks like hard water spots that won't come off. I have tried window cleaner. determent with razor, and acetone with no result.

And recommendations on how to get this off?

It might be some dissolved stain rather than the stripper itself. I'd try a little bit of the stripper and see if that cleans off the spots. You'd still need window cleaner afterwards.

I am sure it is dried stripper since the stripper was sprayed on and the stain was brushed on. The stripper was powdered 'Restore-A-Deck Wood Stain Stripper.'

When you took your hose or pressure washer to rinse off the deck stripper is probably how it happened. Deck strippers dissolve stain but if the stain isn't rinsed off the stain will somewhat harden back up. I think it's some of the dissolved stain that got splashed onto the window. If so, a little deck stripper will dissolve it so it can be cleaned off.

what was the stripper used?

Stripers are strong caustic solutions that are very corrosive, if you got this on the window, and used a razor to try and remove and it did nothing, I'm going to guess it has etched the glass, or the glass coating!

I was thinking deck strippers which are the weak cousin of the paint and varnish remover types of stripper.
