The winter months bring a drop in temperature in most locations. With low temperatures outside, it's important to keep houses and buildings warm inside. Older homes and buildings may not have proper insulation to keep the cold out. A window sealing tape may be placed around the cracks and gaps of windows to ensure the cold doesn't seep into the building. Remove the window seal tape when the temperatures go up.

Cut the window seal tape using a razor blade. Cut as close as possible to the window frame without cutting into the frame.
Use a hair dryer to heat the tape. The adhesive softens from the heat and becomes much easier to remove.
Pull up on one corner of the tape. You may use your fingertips or a set of pliers if the tape is hard to grasp. Carefully pull the tape away from the window.
Reapply heat to the tape with the hair dryer if you feel any resistance. As you apply the heat, continue to pull up on the tape until it is completely removed.
Remove the sticky residue left from the tape. Apply a small amount of an all-purpose stain remover such as Goof Off, Wilbond and Goo Gone to a cloth. These products are available at many hardware stores.
Wipe the window frame with the moistened cloth to remove any sticky residue.
