Use a razor blade then use steel wool to remove whats left....Works perfectly and won't scratch the glass.

+1 . .. . .. go the windex.
or peel off whatever it is, then soak some newspaper in water and whack that over the residue for a few mins.

anyone who has half a brain and has been in the glass industry will tell you windex is $hit! Use a razor blade to remove the sticker, them rub off any marks with metho. This is the way it gets done in the industry, why change something that works wonders.

Yeah anybody who puts tint on knows straight away if you use windex - the ammonia in is makes it harder to get it to stick.

Hair Dryer works best for me, don't have to use any tools at all then.

+1, thats the method i use to remove stickers, decals etc from glass. Go buy yourself a bottle of Methylated spirits and rub that over the sticky stuff left behind after you scrape the sticker off with a razor, it'll lift it straight away :wink:
