Decal Removal

How to remove a decal on a window


STEP 1
Clean the decal or sticker and the area surrounding it. To clean the decals or stickers, you can use warm soapy water and a cleaning cloth. Clean the area around the decal or sticker properly where you want to remove so that no grit or grime interferes with decal’s adhesive-busting ability.

STEP 2
Warm it up. Using a hot hairdryer or heat gun this will help make the vinyl more flexible and help release the adhesive making removal easier.

STEP 3
Scrape up under the window sticker. When the decal or sticker is heated up, you can scrape up under the sticker with a flat edge razor blade or plastic scraper tool at an angle and begin to peel it away. Do not use a razor blade on painted surfaces.

STEP 4
If there is adhesive residue left, you can use window cleaner, soapy water or an adhesive remover from your local automotive or discount store. Please read all warnings and instructions carefully. Some adhesive removers can damage plastic and painted surfaces.
