How to Remove Stickers from a Car

Peeling Sticker Off Windshield

Looking to remove bumper stickers from the body of your car or a West Lafayette city sticker from your windshield? Follow these steps on how to remove stickers from a car, courtesy of the service experts at Auto Express! Our car sticker removal tips ensure that no residue is left behind, leaving you with clean, clear surfaces for a like-new feel.

How to Get Stickers Off a Car Body

Unsure how to get a sticker off a car body? It may seem tricky, as you will want to avoid damaging the paint. With the right products, sticker removal will be simple! Gather the following:

  • A bit of car washing soap
  • Hairdryer
  • Plastic card (library card, membership card, etc.) 
  • Tree sap remover or Goo Gone Automotive 
  • Clean, dry towels

With your materials ready, follow these steps:

  1. Clean the entire sticker and the surrounding area with the car wash soap.
  2. Turn the hairdryer to a high heat setting, and blow directly on the sticker for several seconds, covering the entire area with heat.
  3. Once the sticker is heated, use a plastic card to begin to lift the sticker. When there is enough sticker available to grip, slowly peel it off.
  4. Repeat the heating and peeling process as needed to remove the entire sticker, if it doesn’t come off in one go. 

Notice some residue left over after the sticker is gone? If so, the question becomes how to remove sticker residue from a car. Luckily, it’s not too complicated! All you need to do is take your clean, dry cloth, add some tree sap remover or Goo Gone Automotive, and gently wipe the residue until it is completely gone.

How to Get Stickers Off a Car Window

The process of how to get stickers off a car window is a bit different than how to remove stickers from a car body. Collect the following supplies:

  • Razor blade (unless your windows are tinted)
  • Clean, dry towels
  • Rubbing alcohol 
  • Dish soap and hot water

You’re now ready to get started. Follow these steps:

  1. Use the razor blade to lift up the corner of the sticker, and then peel it off by hand.
  2. Add the dish soap and water mixture to your clean towel, and rub the sticker residue with the dish until it begins to dissipate.
  3. Still notice some residue? Either carefully scrape the residue off with the razor blade, or use rubbing alcohol to get rid of it.
  4. When done, clean the windshield or window with soap and water.
