1. Spray The Decal With A Mixture Of Water And Vinegar
(This step is used for type decal paper)
This process will help loosen the adhesive and make removing it easier. Use a putty knife or sharp object to scrape the decal off the surface gently. If the decal is still stubborn, you can use a hair dryer to heat it and make it easier to remove.
2. Use A Hair Dryer To Heat Up The Decal And Make It Easier To Peel Off
As you know, decals that want to be glued to any surface must use stilts, and this glue is very easy to soften when subjected to heat. This step is the advantage of using a hair dryer, making it easier to peel off the decal without damaging the paint.
Set your hair dryer to its highest setting and hold it about 6 inches away from the car decals. Slowly move the hair dryer back and forth over the decal until you can see that the glue has started to soften.
Use your fingers or a plastic putty knife to peel the decal off the car slowly. If the decal is not coming off easily, you can use a solvent such as Goo Gone to help dissolve the remaining glue.
Be careful not to apply too much heat, as this can damage the paint beneath the decal.
3. Peel Off The Decal While It Is Still Warm
Now is the golden time to peel off the decal easily. If you let the decal cool down and try to peel it off, you might end up tearing the paper.
Start from one corner and slowly peel off the decal while pressing down with your fingers. If you find any resistance, stop and apply the hair dryer again. Repeat this process until the entire car decals are removed.
5. Scrape Off Any Leftover Residue With A Razor Blade Or Credit Card
Normally, this is almost unnecessary with vinyl decals, but with paper decals, this is mandatory.
Use a sharp razor blade or credit card at a 45-degree angle and gently scrape off any leftover residue.
Once you’ve scraped off all the residue, you can proceed to the next step.
6. Apply A Car Wax To Protect The Window From Future Stickers Or Adhesive Residue
This is the final step, but it is advanced protection. Car wax will make it harder for anything to stick to your window in the future and make removal much easier. Apply it just like any other wax in a circular motion until the whole surface is covered. Let it dry, and then buff it off with a clean cloth.
