Everything has to go away one day or the other. Over time everything gets consumed and you have to replace it with something new. This is the same for window tint. After you have tinted your house or car windows, now you think that it is time for removal. Maybe the tint is starting to wear off and you don’t see through it anymore. Or maybe you just want to change the tint that you put three years ago. Here are some steps to remove the window tint.
Like any other task that you want to do in life, you have to have certain numbers of materials prepared to make sure that you successfully remove the window tint. You have to make sure that you have every one of these materials to succeed. You will need ordinary dish soap, an ordinary glass cleaner, spray bottle, water, razor blade, paper towel, newspaper, sponge, a bucket. These materials are for one of the methods. The other methods require unused plastic garbage bags, spray bottle with regular glass cleaner and a razor blade.
Clean the Window
You must make sure that the window is prepared for the tint removal so you must clean it properly. This means to remove any stickers that you might have on the window first. Then you start by cleaning the window with the dish soap and the sponge. You also clean the window with the glass cleaner and you dry it out with the sponge or paper towel. Make sure to dry out the window with a hairdryer or some other device because you don’t want anything messing with the process of tint removal.
Remove the Tint.
I’ll share with you one method you can use to remove the tint in the easiest way possible. One is using soap and newspapers. At first, you lay a coat of soapy water on the window and then you lay a newspaper on top of it. You leave it to dry out for about half an hour to an hour maximum. Be careful to not let it dry out completely and if that happens apply soapy water on top of the newspaper. Then with the razor blade, you remove a corner of the newspaper and then you start peeling off the tint.
Removing the Glue
If you have peeled off the whole tint from your window then chances are that the adhesive is still on the window obscuring the view. No matter what way you used to peel off the tint, the method that you are going to use to remove the glue is almost the same. You can scrub off the adhesive with the razor blade and then clean the surface with soapy water. You can clean the surface while you remove the glue at the same time.
