3 Tips You Need To Remove Those Pesky Car Decals From Your Vehicle

Picture this - you’re stuck in traffic on your way to work or school and find yourself daydreaming. There’s a pretty good chance that you are glancing at the rear windows of the car in front of you at the stoplight. For some it’s just a traditional car dealership emblem, but for others they utilize the space to show off some personality and may even crack a joke to make passerbys like you smile. Who would’ve thought such a simple car decal or sticker would be just the culprit to make you snicker. In this week’s blog post, we are going to outline the best tactics we’ve found to be useful when removing those pesky stickers and car decals safely from your vehicle without leaving a mark!


Gather The Supplies

As with any project, you will want to prepare by gathering the proper supplies to reduce the amount of time and headache spent working on removing those pesky stickers and decals without losing your mind! We suggest a complete kit containing some window cleaner, rubbing alcohol, goo gone, hair dryer, and a razor blade or two. You may be able to get away with using just one or two of these supplies, depending on how long your sticker or decal has been applied to your sweet ride.

Heat It Up

To get the party started, put that hair dryer to use by heating up the sticker or decal in question. You want to make sure you are holding the dryer a few inches away and aren’t hovering right on top of it. Additionally, you will want to make sure you are constantly moving the dryer around and are hitting all of the corners and edges of the sticker or decal.

Utilize The Corner

If you have followed the previous step, we are working with a decal or sticker that has been warmed up with our hair dryer. Once warm, utilize the heat to slide your fingers or a razorblade underneath the corners or along the edge of the sticker or decal. Just like that - you have the best tips and tricks on removing those pesky stickers and or decals from your car. If the heat isn't quite doing the trick, utilize some of our additional supply resources above along with an old rag and by rubbing against the surface that the sticker or decal resides….for now.
