Car stickers are difficult to remove from automotive glass because of the strong adhesive they use to make sure they stay in place even at high speeds. Thankfully, there are many resources for drivers to utilize in the event they need to remove a stubborn sticker that won’t easily come off.

The best way to remove a sticker is to use a liquid or spray that deteriorates the adhesive that bonds the sticker to the glass. Many household items can be used for this process, including WD-40, rubbing alcohol and window cleaners. After applying their chosen solution, drivers can gently scrape off the sticker with a sharp/flat utensil such as a knife. Drivers should take care not to scratch up their glass while removing stickers.
