Removing stain from glass

My windows were replaced about 15 years ago. The inside frames are wood and needed to be stained. Unfortunately, the stain got on the glass. I've tried scraping with a razor scraper, no good. I've tried turpentine, no good. What else do you suggest I try?

Thanks,
Cathy

Nail polish remover?

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it tomorrow.

Try some lacquer thinner. Moisten the tip of a piece of paper towel and wipe/rub carefully...so that you don't get any on the stained wood.
