Sticky stuff remover from avon/ ebay always works for me

Hairdryer - melts the glue slightly so it's easy to wipe off.

alchohol

a simple cut around the gluey residue with a glass cutter:thumbsup:


simples.

scandalous misuse of alcohol:whistling:

Nail polish remover usually gets rid of it!

I've just had to take off the tints off my front windows , bought the car with them on and have been driving it for nearly 3 years , anyway , removing the film left all the gluey residue and was actually stopping the windows from going down . Got some amazing stuff from a customer , a blue liquid that made easy work of the glue . It was supplied by a double glazing firm for cleaning the windows , it had a name like .........easyglaze or ???glaze .Try a local double glazing company in your area and find out what they use .

Get some Isopropyl Alcohol on it (Rubbing Alcohol)

+1 for WD40

petrol on a rag

nail polish remover or a baby wipe

baby wipes get rid of everything... also there is that oven/kitchen cleaner which has orange in it which works quite well

A Pickaxe.........Seriously

Afraid not, its a common practice in many body shops and garages. You can get specific scrapers to do the job with nice sharp razor blades in em :thumbsup:

I just had two year old parcel table stuck all over a glass table my mum had in her garage....was told to spray furniture polish on it and leave for a few minutes...worked a treat and just wiped off!!
