How to Remove Sticker Residue from Car Windows

Learning how to remove sticker residue from a car properly is important, because the wrong cleaning supplies could damage your car’s window glass or exterior paint. Basic household cleaning solutions like window cleaner, rubbing alcohol, and ice are safe to use, although specialized products like WD-40 and Goo Gone may be more effective. Follow these steps for how to get stickers off car windows:

  1. Spray the glass with a cleaning solution. Rubbing alcohol and window cleaner both work, but a product like Goo Gone is helpful if you’re short on time because it’s chemically designed to break down sticker residue.
  2. Let the cleaning solution sit for a few minutes and break down the sticker residue. If you use ice, hold it on the sticker residue for a few minutes.
  3. At this point, the sticker residue should be falling away by itself. Use a thin, sharp razor blade (such as an X-Acto knife) to gently scrape away any remaining residue.
  4. If any extra-stubborn residue is still clinging on, repeat steps 1 through 3 or apply WD-40.

How to Remove Stickers from a Car Body 

Stickers can be just as difficult to remove from car bumpers as from window glass. The method for how to remove stickers from car bumpers is slightly different than it is for glass: 

  1. Clean any dirt from the sticker and surrounding area.
  2. Using a hair dryer, apply hot air to the sticker for 5 to 10 seconds. Start in the middle of the sticker and move gradually to the edges.
  3. Scrape away the broken-down adhesive residue with a credit card. Do not use a razor blade on your car bumper or body!
  4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 until your car bumper is free of sticker residue.
