I put plastic sheets over the windows and try to control the humidity but eventually condensation builds up on my single pane windows and the frames get mouldy. I want a sealant that will keep the mould off the wood as much as possible and is easy to remove when it needs to be replaced every couple of years.

Specifically I want to seal where the glass panes meet the wooden frame. I know there are frame sealants but I think they're meant to seal where the frame meets the wall. I used a frame sealant last time and it's a lot of work to remove it as I have 24 panes.

There's glazing silicone like EverBuild 225 but as it's silicone it should be harder to apply and remove than an acrylic sealant.

I'm thinking of using some kind of acrylic sealant with strong anti-mould properties. Any recommendations?

Thanks

You can get glazing putty in a gun tube. It's not actually putty but it is an acrylic exterior /interior window sealant that is paintable. Can't remember brand I used but bought it off the shelf in a glaziers a couple of years ago on the advice of the glazier himself and it was great to use because it goes on like Caulk.

It wasn't anti fungal but paint sticks to it properly unlike silicone, so water doesn't get behind it so quickly.

And it's always advisable to remove water if possible (I keep a chamois cloth around now) but sounds like you have too much glass for that.

A window vac is great for removing condensation quickly and with no mess, you might like to try that.
