Good news—there are many ways to remove a decal from your car window safely. And you can find most of the products you’ll need around the house.
The most popular method is to use a razor blade. Here are the steps:
  • Clean the glass with ammonia-free glass cleaner.
  • Use a razor blade or razor blade scraper and slowly scrape the decal off.
  • Spray WD-40 on any sticker bits or glue residue, then scrape again.
  • Do one more wipe down with the glass cleaner, and you should be good to go!
