Sticker Removal Tips For Your Windscreen

Sticker Removal Tips For Your Windscreen

Have you ever tried to remove a sticker from your windscreen only to find out that it is much harder than you thought it would be? Stickers developed to be used on the outside of your car are affixed with strong adhesives. They are formulated to last. If you are interested in learning how to remove these stubborn car glass stickers, London Car Windscreen tips can help. 

Windscreen Sticker Removal Guide

To get started, all you will need is some liquid fabric softener, a bucket of warm water, paper towels, glass cleaner, rubbing alcohol, a plastic scraper, and a bit of dish soap. Follow the steps below for a clean windscreen with no scratches!

Step 1 – Peel the Sticker

Starting at the corner of the sticker, gently pull diagonally. This helps the sticker to remain in one piece as you are removing it. In the event that the sticker tears, take your scraper and raise another corner to start the process again.

Step 2 – Soapy Adhesive Soak

Fill up your bucket with warm water and a little dish soap. Submerge a rag and then place the rag on top of the sticker adhesive. Let it soak for two to five minutes. This should soften it up enough to allow you to gently remove it with a plastic scraper. Follow up after scraping with your rag to wipe away any residue. If the sticker has been completely eliminated, you are all done, if not, keep reading for some additional advice.

Stubborn Sticker Removal Guide

Some stickers are more stubborn than others, so they’ll take some extra work to remove. Below, we’ve included three tips on what to do with difficult-to-remove stickers.

Step 1 – Hot Softy

For stubborn stickers, take a bucket and fill it with hot water. Add some of the fabric softeners and mix well. Take your rag, dip it in the solution, and work it into the sticky area until it is all gone.

Step 2 – Wonder Windex

On the off chance that the mixture above doesn’t work, it’s time to break out the glass cleaner. Windex is the strongest on the market, but most top-shelf glass cleaners will suffice. Have at it with a paper towel and a liberal dose of cleaner to banish that adhesive into the ether.

Step – 3 Rubbing Alcohol

If nothing else has worked up to this point, then you can try rubbing alcohol as a last resort. Liberally douse the sticker or patch of the adhesive with rubbing alcohol and then buff it away with a paper towel.

Glass Clean Up

Stickers are a unique way to customize your windscreen without spending an arm and a leg. However, once their lustre wears off, it is time to clean up the mess. If you have removed all of the stickers and adhesive residue, you just need to clean your windscreen to restore viability. You can use clean water and a microfiber towel or glass cleaner and a bit of detailing spray.
