Removing tindow tint and cleaning the windows

Posted by chemocurl (My Page) on

I have windows that have a bad tint job on them (Not done at the factory), and was wanting to remove it and just do without. I started to peel back a corner, and found there is 'stuff' left on the window. I don't want to remove the tint until I am sure I can get the 'stuff' off of the window. What should I use to remove it (the stuff)?

Maybe you could use window film remover stuff. I saw that stuff at HomeDepot by the window treatment display in the decorating department.

Or just keep it wet with ammonia water for a few minutes as my window film says not to use ammonia based cleaners as it dissolves their stickum stuff ...and use one of the razor scrapers - keeping it nice and sharp with fresh blades.

Thanks Mikie,

Now I can attempt it. The drivers side window was once broken and the fella who repaired it, put on some really dark limo tint on it. The only way I can see out at night is to keep the window down...and that has gotten quite old.
