A Car Window Sticker that Needs Removing

Steps to Remove a Sticker from Your Car Window

Step 1 : Spray adhesive remover onto towel
When you choose which cleaner you want to use, spray it on your microfiber towel and rub it on the sticker in consistent circles around the edges of the sticker. This helps the remover to dissolve the adhesive that's on the sticker.

Step 2 : Peel using the razor blade
Use the razor blade to gently peel away the sticker along with the adhesive. Start with an edge, and gently push the blade underneath the sticker and peel the adhesive away from the window.

Step 3 : Rinse and Repeat
Repeat the first two steps until the sticker is entirely gone. If adhesive is still visible, respray the cleaner on your towel and use the razor blade to scrape off the remainder of the sticker.

Step 4 : Spray Windex onto the window
When the sticker is gone, spray the Windex for a clear, shiny car window! This removes the oily residue leftover from the remover and the adhesive.
