How do I remove a CarMax sticker?
I just bought a used Toyota from CarMax. I’m stoked, but there’s a big CarMax sticker on the rear of my car that I’d rather not keep. How do I safely remove a CarMax sticker?

Congratulations on the new ride! You can safely remove the CarMax sticker in a few easy steps.
If the sticker is on the window, bumper, or directly on the paint, this method will get it off without harming your vehicle. Plus, all you need are three household products:
- Paper towels
- White vinegar
- Soak a paper towel in white vinegar, then lay it over the sticker. Let it sit and soak for five minutes.
- Remove the paper towel and try to peel off the sticker. Start at one of the corners and slowly pull it away.
- If it’s still stuck, place the vinegar-soaked paper towel over the sticker for five more minutes.
- Once the sticker is removed, rub the area with a vinegar-soaked paper towel to remove any remaining adhesive.
- Then, rub the area down with water to remove the vinegar.
If you followed these steps, your car should be sticker-free and clean!
