This may sound silly, but what is the best way to remove the glue from old car stickers from the back of your windscreen.?

As Hawthorn's season is done and dusted for this year, I took my membership sticker off and have an outline of dirt and glue on my rear window, @ the bottom edge.

Thankyou very much, a bit of soap and hot water and some blue towels cleaned her right up. Just for good measure, wiped down liberally with Armorall Glass cleaner.

I found out by accident one day that WD-40 or a simular solvent, is really good for removing that sticky hard s**t old stickers leave behind...

Just clean the windows good after with soap 'n' water.
