First of all, if the varnish is dry, you could try to scrape it off

with a razor blade.

Another method you can try is to use paint thinner or stripper.

Apply the thinner/stripper to the varnish you want to remove from

the glass, and let it sit for 30-45 minutes. Then wipe off the

excess and finish by scraping the remaining softened residue with a

razor blade. Follow that by cleaning the window with Bon

Ami (available for purchase online; see the Related link

below) on a clean cloth, using a circular motion. Rinse, then mix

1/2 cup white vinegar to 1 gallon warm water, and finish cleaning

for a sparkling clean window.
