How can I keep paint off my windows without using tape?

Keep Paint Off Windows

Everyone likes to add new color to a room. Unfortunately, if not prepped properly this can mean hours of window cleaning to remove paint. If you'd like to keep paint off your windows, but don't want to shell out the money for painter's tape, you might want to consider this window cleaning tip. If you wet strips of newspaper and paste them around the edges and corners of your window, they'll stick for at least as long as it takes to paint the window. Another wonderful piece of window cleaning equipment is petroleum jelly. Smear the jelly around the corners and edges of the window and paint won't stick at all. Wipe clean with a cloth. Now isn't that much simpler than cleaning windows with a razor blade to remove all of that paint?
