How to Remove Stickers and Decals from a Windshield

    I’ve had success in removing stickers and decals from vehicles by using a hair dryer to soften the adhesive. Then one’s fingernail or a plastic knife or scraper can be used to gradually scrap away the offending material. Keeping the sticker warm throughout the removal process is the key. The same procedure is helpful in removing masking tape that’s been left on too long.

    Thanks Joe. Your advice worked the best, almost like magic. :-)

    OK—I started with the hair dryer, then after a corner started to get loosened, I used a plastic blade (did not work too well), so I got a single edge blade to continue. That got rid of most of the decals (I had six). Gave the window glass a final single edge blade, then some WD-40, then some Windex—All went well…

    I used WD-40 on a couple of areas of glue where stickers had been removed sometime back (1-2 years) from the windshield of my truck. Sprayed it on and spread it around to make sure it kinda covered the whole area, waited 5 minutes and it came right off with the help of my scraper. I applied Windex to clean it and now you couldn’t tell there ever was a glue area. Thanks!
