It doesn’t matter how you wash your car – if you’ve got an unwanted sticker on your car window, you’re not going to be satisfied with the results.

How to Remove Stickers from Windshield

There are several different solutions you can use to remove a sticker from your windshield – or even your car windows. Such solutions include rubbing alcohol, Goo Gone, basic window cleaner, ice, and WD-40. Here’s a step-by-step guide for how to remove stickers from your windshield.

  1. Spray rubbing alcohol, window cleaner, or Goo Gone on the windshield. Generally speaking, Goo Gone is the easiest option because it’s chemically designed to break down sticker adhesive effectively. But if you don’t have it then window cleaner or rubbing alcohol should work. Otherwise, you may want to use ice.
  2. Allow the liquid to sit for a few minutes, or hold ice on the sticker for a few minutes.
  3. Use a thin, sharp razor blade to chip away at the sticker and any remaining residue. An X-Acto knife will do.
  4. If there’s still residue left on the windshield, use WD-40 or more Goo Gone to loosen it up, and then remove what’s left with the razor or X-Acto knife.

How to Remove Sticker from Car Body

If you have a sticker on your car body—usually on the bumper—there are some different steps to follow.

  1. Remove dirt from the sticker and surrounding area.
  2. Apply heat from a hair dryer to the sticker for a few seconds, beginning in the middle and then heating the edges.
  3. Use a credit card to get under the sticker and scrape up the adhesive. Note: Do not use a razor blade; using a razor blade will damage your car’s body.
  4. Repeat these steps until you get rid of the sticker.
