How to Remove Stickers from Car Windows

by braniac

So you've just purchased a fly new whip (car) from the dealership but you don't like the look of those price stickers on the windshield? Well now there's a simple and easy way to get those stickers off with no damage to your windows. All it takes is just a few simple household supplies and your car will be looking perfectly spotless as oppose to a driving advertisement. Not saying that there's anything wrong driving with a price tag on your car if you're into it, but to me it's more than tacky. In this tutorial I will explain the easy way to strip off the stickers hassle free. If you believe it you can achieve it!

Start by taking a couple damp paper towels and running it across the window where the sticker(s) is. The point of this is to get excess grime and dirt off the sticker and window before you proceed with the WD-40. A lot of times the dealership will leave cars sitting on the floor or outside for weeks and even months without a wash, so doing this step insures that you will be working on a clean surface.

After letting the window dry for a minute, take the can of WD-40 and spray the sticker. Make sure to put a rather thick coat of WD-40 because you're going to have to allow it to sit for about 10-15 minutes. Stay clear from using the WD-40 in the sun as it will dry on your window and you'll have to apply more. For best results do it in the early morning or when the sun has gone down.

The next step is to take the plastic scrapper/spatula and place it under the sticker. Once all the way under the sticker begin to push up so the sticker starts to rise from the window. If the sticker still fails to come up clean, spray more WD-40 and wait longer then repeat the process.

The last step to completing the task is to take another set of paper towels, make sure to get more than one so it doesn't tear. Begin to wipe the window down to get rid of the WD-40. You may also want to run water on the window after you've completely removed the sticker just to be safe that the WD-40 is gone.
