5 products for easy sticker removal

  1. Spray window cleaner. Spray your window cleaner of choice on the sticker to loosen its stickiness. Take a razor blade and use it to peel up the edge of the sticker. Pull up slowly and repeat the spray, peel, and pull process.
  2. Rubbing alcohol. Grab a bottle of rubbing alcohol and apply it to the sticker. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the sticker to become loose. Peel away from the glass and if necessary, use a razor blade.
  3. Goo Gone or another adhesive remover. Since this product is made specifically for sticker removal, all you need to do is apply some to the sticker, wait a few minutes, and peel it off of the window.
  4. Ice pack. Apply and hold an ice pack over the sticker for a few minutes to cool the adhesive. Cold temperatures cause the viscosity to raise and therefore make the bonding ineffective. After removing the ice pack, use a razor blade to peel and pull off the sticker.
  5. WD-40. If you have a can of WD-40 lying around for releasing stuck parts, you can use it for stickers too. Get as much of the sticker off as you can before spraying WD-40 on the remaining pieces. Let it sit for a few minutes before using a damp rag to wipe off the remaining sticker pieces.
