Before installing our cool decals, you will need to remove that old, poorly
designed, badly prepared decal someone else sold you. :)
- Wet decal and
adjoining surface with soapy warm water via strip washer or sea sponge.
- Use a hair drier
so heat the decal.
- Using your fingernail,
lift the decal carefully and pull up at 90%
- After the decal
has been removed, use a "degreaser" like Oil Flo, to remove glue
left behind from decal. Apply Oil Flo with a clean, soft cloth and rub onto
decal residue until glue dissolves. *
- Finish by cleaning
glass with the standard window cleaning procedure, (Strip wash to apply soapy
water, squeegee rinse).
IF YOUR DECAL WONT BUDGE?
- Use a "degreaser"
like Oil Flo, apply the degreaser directly to the decal to loosen. It should
loosen and allow you to peel off the decal by hand. **
- If your decal
still won't come off your window.
Use a professional grade glass scraper, with new, clean, stainless steel blade
to scrap under and remove decal.
- You may want
to test your scraper in a inconspicuous area of glass first to see if razor
blade use will not damage glass. This is needed because, every pane of glass
is different; some may have fabricating debris and some may have a coated
- Generally, you
can not use a razor blade on glass with fines but, in some cases you can lightly
use a razor on coated - tinted surfaces.
(*) Please follow
the manufacture's recommendations for use when using chemicals like degreasing
agents. Acid resistant rubber gloves and safety goggles may be needed. Oil Flo
and other degreasers can not be used on coated surfaces because the chemical
can't tell the difference between glue and the tinting and will dissolve both!
will work on windows with glass fines. Glass fines are commonly found on "tempered
glass". Tempered glass is glass usually located in high traffic areas,
i.e... Store front windows and glass doors. The tempering process makes the
glass 10 times stronger than regular annealed window glass, and is the reason
tempered glass is used in locations where impact from people and other objects
