How to Remove Cement From Paint & Glass

by Melynda Sorrels

All it takes is getting too close to a cement truck in traffic and cement will find a way onto your car. Cement tends to dry the quickest in places it isn't wanted and when it does it poses the problem of trying to get it off. Fortunately there is a fairly simple fix.


Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle and soak the cement thoroughly.


Allow the vinegar at least 10 minutes to soak.


Wipe the cement away with a soft cloth or sponge. Vinegar etches cement so it should come of fairly easily.

But if it Doesn't


Heat vinegar in a sauce pan until it is hot.


Soak a sponge in the hot vinegar and place it directly on the cement for several minutes.


Wipe the remaining cement away with a soft clean cloth.
