    Default How to get window adhesive off

    Free SHipping @ $299
    I have a potential new client. She said, "if you can get that glue of that window, you can come back each month." This is a doctors office, would be a really good client; word of mouth wise. She said she has tried everything herself to remove this glue. It is the adhesive from a Velcro sticky that she had attached a poster to. Looks like the sun has baked it good. Any suggestions on what I may be able to use. She said she has used every over the counter home-depot product and a razor blade and nothing works. Sure would be nice to just go in, wipe it off, and get that account.

    Thanks
    Jenna

    I personally haven't used it, but heard that oil-flow works well for things like this.

    I'm sure a razor blade would remove it - did you not have a crack whilst you were there?

    Wet the window and use a razor. You may need to rewet and scrape more than once to get all the residue. Oh, and welcome Jenna.

    Default Accetone

    Try Accetone, it gets the sticky glue stuff off sometimes better than oil-flo. We use it a lot in post construction. You can purchase this at CVS,Walgreens, its used for nail polish. Get the 100% kind and you'll be rolling. Dab it on a rag do a quick wipe and it should come right off. Its usually an immediate chemical reaction. I was amazed when I used it. Its only a couple bucks.

    is there anything you can use on tint?? Client asked me today, I told her i dont think there is anything.

    She mentioned to me that you could use vodka to remove adhesive, but i dont know if it would damage the tint.
